Random on Monday

Well I didn't realize until late Saturday that it was National Quilting Day! There was no sewing done, but unknowingly I spent the afternoon celebrating in the best possible way - teaching a newbie about quilting! I had loaned her my copy of The Practical Guide to Patchwork, and she had picked out a pattern to try, and came, fabric in hand. So I showed her about cutting, stitching, pressing, and we talked all things quilty. Very cool.

Also cool has been my winning streak of late! As if it wasn't enough to garner a win in the Modern Mini Challenge {here}, I was pleased to win some "Meet the Gang" charms in  Kate's 50 follower giveaway on her blog, Katie Mae Quilts; and a "Brrr!" fq pack from Jessica over at Twin Fibers. Love all that fabric! Thanks Kate and Jessica!

Last night, I was able to wrap up the last of my 4x5 "Three Wishes" blocks - yay!
Just for fun, here they are all together, including my 'sample' block in the bottom right corner.
It's really been fun working with this block and trying all the varied palettes! (Pattern by Jamie Moilanen from "99 Modern Blocks")

Lastly, for those of you who were interested in the Little Quilt - Sew, Vote, Swap group, it's opened up for Round 4. Here are the rules if you want to check them out.

Happy Monday!
