Ladies and Gentlemen, We Have a Winner

My daughter chose the 'Circle of Gulls' design, as did Morgan, Ellen, Michele and Gill. Now, if I were currently speaking to the hubs (that's another story...let's just say it involves golf and forgetting to call home until 9:15 p.m. and asking me to phone in a carry out order for him (I didn't).) I'd have him pick a number, so let me text my daughter and ask her.....

While we're waiting for her to check in, let's talk about the table top quilt. It's created using the Drunkard's Path die on the Accuquilt GO!. Took  less than 10 minutes to cut enough shapes to make 32 squares (which in turn make 8 large blocks). The remaining blocks will likely be used to make pillow covers, but if she doesn't want those, we'll use them on the back in the beachball formation.

The borders are a mishmash of leftover fabric. Some were cut using the GO! strip cutter die. The layout of them was dictated totally by necessity. When they weren't long enough as I originally sewed them together, I cut them apart and added more vertical strips to, and then had to scramble for more fabric to do it again. Fortunately, they came out fitting exactly, not an inch to spare. Phew!

My daughter has just sent a text to me selecting 2. So, the second comment that chose the layout she did is Ellen from FSQ. Congratulations, Ellen!  I don't have your email address, so please contact me and let me know if you'd like die cuts or scissor bling. If I don't hear from you by the end of the day Thursday, we'll draw another name Friday morning.

We'll have another giveaway coming up early July, so please check back often.

Tomorrow I'll be backing this quilt and hoping to finish it up before I see my daughter on Friday.

That  trainwreck known as Danielle (from Real Housewives of New Jersey) is on Watch What Happens Live, so I've got to devote my full attention to the carnage.

Happy Tuesday!


  1. I think that came out really well considering the scrambling. The different fabric designs really makes it all work somehow!

    Very nice. :)

  2. Oh No, I missed Thursday. I don't get online each day. Sigh !!
