I know, I know, it’s Tuesday, and I promised to announce the beebolt fabric giveaway on Monday, but the day escaped me after an unexpected play date with our good friend, the emergency room. Yes, my little maid suffered a “nursemaid’s elbow” after a short-lived bout of swinging from mom & dad’s arms. Ped sent us to the ER for an xray, which turned into a napless afternoon of waiting, hiding pain meds in pudding & applesauce, waiting, waiting, running like monkeys through the halls, more waiting, and finally a re-set joint and happy popsicle ending. She was a trouper!
So without further ado, the winner of the yummy fat quarters from beebolt IS…

Congratulations. I signed up for beebolts newsletter, so maybe I can get in on some of the wealth too? Just saying, LOL. Have fun using these fabrics.
Lisa, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for info on how to claim your fabric!
Also, I’m SO glad to be almost completely caught up in the We Can Do It Skill Builder Sampler over at Sewn. I’ve got 12 blocks done now, and it’s starting to get really exciting! I think I might enter the finished quilt into next year’s Denver County Fair. Not to expect any sort of prize, but just for fun! This summer was the first every Denver County Fair and sadly they didn’t have very many quilts- any virtually none that were modern, and only 1 sampler (although it was a traditional Civil War quilt and the piecing was microscopic!). Here’s what I finished up this week.
My giggly assistant thought it was hilarious to have her chubby little hand touching the block while I snapped a pic.
Virginia Star in Tula Pink & some yummy avocado green houndstooth
Ohio Star in more Tula Pink w/ some navy dots. My hubby didn’t love this one, and I confess,
I wish I had added some color to the inside white diamond, but I still like it- clean and crisp.
Flying Geese block- I flipped the blue geese around on purpose to create this cool hourglass effect. Neat, huh? It looks totally different from the one in the sampler, but I love it!
Today I’m going to try and crank out a double star, which I think might be my favorite of the sampler so far. Pulled these from my stash and am simmering on them before I cut. What do you think?
