Winners and New Projects!

Remember that bundle of solid fabrics I brought a few weeks ago, well work has began on the new quilt. As soon as I saw Traceys quilt, I knew I had to make one. The original was made by Barbara Snyder Stoner in 1895 for her daughter and I just love it!!!

The quilt is called Philadephia Pavement and I have changed the colours a little from the original. Instead of the bright red I have chosen a burgundy and Ive used black instead of the deep purple. Its been fun watching this come together but progress has been slow.

Ive also been madly stitching away on a new BOM and Im really loving how this is going:

Just a little sneak peek for now but hopefully some full shots of the blocks in the coming weeks!! This is a little different from my other 2, its a little look into wonderful childhood memories!!

So its on to the winners of my Seasonal Sampler giveaway.........the RNG has chosen Tracey in CT and Fiona. Congratulations girls, an email is on its way to you both and a big thank you to everyone who entered!!
