Loose Threads: I Won A Great Giveaway

I Won A Great Giveaway

I won a giveaway over on Vicky's blog LA Quilter.  She gave me a $50 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop.  The giveaway was awhile ago, but I wanted to show you what I bought and how I plan to use some of it.

With the Flurry charm pack I want to do a smaller wall hanging size of this quilt.  The directions for this quilt are available as a free download from Fat Quarter Shop. 
Flurry Project Sheet Moda Project Sheet

I saw this quilt along with the entire line of fabrics at my local quilt shop. 

The Bella solids are 1930s colors.  I wanted these to work on a project that I've already started. 

After I cut pieces from my Kaffe Fassett fabrics to use in my Hearts and Flowers applique' quilt, I keep the larger scraps.  I saw this little basket pattern in one of the Quiltmania magazines and decided these baskets would be a good way to use those scraps. 

These baskets are 2 inches high.

This pack of Christmas fabrics by Riley Blake is called Christmas Candy and is a stacker.  There are 22 charm squares in a stacker.  The stripe will be used for binding.

I wanted the Christmas candy fabrics to use with some other fabrics with Christmas candy that have been in my stash.  I've already cut those fabrics into 5" squares.

These pieces are from Just Wing It by Momo for Moda.  I have a layer cake of that line so the solids will go into the quilt and the floral will be used for backing.  More on that quilt in another post.
Thanks so much to Vicky for such a generous giveaway.  I had lots of fun spending the gift certificate and will have just as much fun sewing up all of these great fabrics. 

Please go over to Vicky's blog and say hello;  she is having another giveaway that ends this Saturday morning.

I also hope you will go on over to Fat Quarter Shop and spend some time there.  Besides lots of beautiful fabrics, there are free patterns to download  and also photos and information on fabric lines that are coming out soon.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  I hope you are having a good day and doing a little bit of sewing!

Wonderful choices from your spending spree. You're going to have fun with those fabrics.
I tend to forget about the free patterns available here and there (as if I need any more projects added to my bucket list). Looks like the Fat Quarter Shop has a nice group on their site. Thanks for the reminder.
