Ange of Heart of Charnwood holds a monthly linky where you link up a project that you have made that month from a craft book. In February I made a 'Peppermint Neck Warmer' from Fresh Quilting using yummy Oakshott fabrics.
And guess what - I won her giveaway! Yup - I won the book Modern Designs for Classic Quilts and it is a brilliant book! I am now planning to make the flying geese place mats (I'd like to make the flying geese quilt too) and this table runner - yum!
Thank you Ange for the motivation to use my craft and sewing books each month and thank you for this amazing book :) Check the Monthly Book Challenge out - you will be so pleased you did!!
I said I was a lucky LUCKY duck...
Long story short for you. In February I blogged about my Pantone Emerald challenge mini quilt and Shevvy tweeted Mr Aurifil himself (Alex Veronelli) to show him what I made and he said he 'loved it' so I replied and cheekily said he could send me thread if he wanted to! AND HE DID!!
I am now the proud owner of an Aurifil thread colour card (wow there are some amazing colours there) and three spools of Aurifil thread! Yay - thank you Alex at Aurifil for making my day and sending me yummy Aurifil thread!! Sometimes it pays to be cheeky!! Stay tuned for the finished mini quilt!
Am I a lucky LUCKY duck or what!???
