Major Award Winner

First let me say I won I won, hot darn I won!! A major award(remember the Christmas Story movie where he won the lamp?)!!! I won Bonnie Hunter's book Scraps and Shirtails from the Quiltmaker blog. YAH!! Can't wait to get it and start working on one of her quilts. I am a big fan of hers. Speaking of Bonnie, I am doing my second mystery quilt with her. The first one was Double Delight and it was a lot of fun and is now one of my absolute favorite quilts. I love it. This one, Christmas Lights, will be featured in Quiltmaker magazine. It's just started with the current issue on stands now so get it! This is going to be fun. Here are the fabrics I have picked out for the blocks. Still debating on borders. . .

I keep a bag under my sewing desk and drop strips and scraps into it. I have dug in to those scraps and made two log cabin quilts (and there is still a huge bag of scraps left!). Here is one finished. I have the top of the other done and I hope to have it quilted soon. Of course, it looks almost identical since it is from the same scraps. I love that I have this quilt now to look at and remember the fabrics that are used in other quilts. The second one is to be a Christmas gift for a former boss.
