Oooh Baby. . . It's a Quilt

The latest quilt, a baby quilt, made as a gift. It is kind of scrappy. I went through my stash and used everything that coordinated with the sashing. There was a bit of frustration with the backing fabric. It was 1" too small for the quilt. I measured 6 times hoping each time that some how it would change. Not a chance. So there is a row of the left over rectangles in the center of the backing. I really liked this block and may make another quilt with different fabrics.

And the Winner is. . .

Yes again, it was me. Let me explain. A couple of weekends ago was the Central Coast Quilt Shop Tour. Many of the shops had challenges or contests. Quilt'n Cousins theme was Surf's Up. So the challenge for that shop was decorated flip-flops. So here are my decorated flip-flops. They won as well as the pair my daughter decorated. Of course we were the only two entries. Still though, we each won a very nice gift certificate to one of my favorite quilt stores.

The flip-flops have ribbon glued on to the straps. The medallions are based on one of my popular brooch designs. They are made from fabric covered with sequins and beads. Anyway I thought they dressed up plain black flip-flops rather nicely.

And the winner is. . .

You're going wait a sec, the May giveaway day is over. Yes it is. But this weekend was the Central Coast Quilt Shop Tour. And I won :) one of the daily gift baskets from Betty's Fabric. It was a tote bag stuffed with lots of quilting related goodies. That bag was heavy let me tell you. The contents are pictured below.
Lots and lots of fabric, books, patterns and notions. There was even a package of bamboo batting. I've been wanting to try this since I heard about it a few months ago. So I'm off to sort all that fabric out and find projects to use it up on. More about the tour on the next post. Hint: another prize.
