What a Fun way to start my new blog!!!

I just found out that I won 4 (four!) fabulous charm packs from sweet Angela of Cut to Pieces! I just started searching and enjoying quilting blogs about a month ago and decided to go ahead and enter one of these give-aways. I am one of those people who don't ever win anything... Well, I am now! Thanks so much to Angela!

I have been dreaming of getting some of this fabric to make a quilt, but knew it was going to be a while before I could, so needless to say, when I saw my name as one of the winners I was STUNNED! And so grateful! What a wonderful thing!

I'm pretty sure what kind of quilt I'm going to make and it's this one from my friend Marion's blog. I love it! And, I will have lots of squares left over so I will have to come up with something else that's fun to make! Happy quilting!

Yippee! #1 welcome to the quilting cyberspace world :) I cant wait to see what you make :) #2. CONGRATULATIONS on the charm pack win. I saw your name and was on my way over to congratulate you when I saw the blog announcement :) I was so excited to see that you won :)
Ps - for the sashing on that quilt I just used a $5 twin flat sheet from walmart ;) they have tons of colors. My only tip is to rip out the seams, wash it, dry it and press it with steam and super high heat. There is a li5le polyester in it and all that heat gets the fabric stable. I know that polyester is a quilting faux pas, but those sheets are cheap and sturdy. ...just my two cents! ;)
