An almost win!

Last week I showed you the three sets of fat quarter bundles I designed as part of a contest on The Fabric Shopper.

My fun set of Sugar Sprinkles was chosen as an honorable mention! The set will be listed on Whipstich with my name. How cool is that?! One of the things I am most unsure about is color and pattern matching, so I was very excited.

I actually pieced most of that set together myself last week and bought several fat quarters from her shop. I'm now on the hunt for more candy-colored oranges and pinks to make a wonky star quilt like this wonderful creation by Georgia McDonald. Takes your breath away, doesn't it! (I think I need a clothes line just for pictures like this!)

But for now I have given myself a deadline to finish two projects. One will be a gift and the other is our summer picnic blanket that would be best done before the summer is done!

I just might have to try one of those star quilts!!! It is FANTASTIC!!! I'm working on our picnic/outdoor quilt also. I'm on the stippling and have about 4 bobbins in. It fits my queen size bed so I have some more to go but I love it!!
Your color choices for the bundle was spectacular!!!!! Love the pink and orange together!!! Congrats!

Congratulations on your honorable mention. That star quilt is amazing. I really like the whirligig quilt you are working on too. I started 1 early this week also.
