Lucky September!

September really was a lucky month for me. I won two different giveaways-- woo hoo!

First, I was one of the winners for August's Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge (my entry was this Fringed Hobo Bag). I received a gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop. And then I immediately used it to buy this:

Fat Quarter Shop Apple Dumplings Quilt Kit
Happy and fall and Aneela Hoey... I don't do kits very often, but this one just spoke to me. Of course, now I need to actually make it. More hours in the day, please!

My second win was from Laundry Basket Quilts in their giveaway for the Moda County Fair blog hop:

Laundry Basket Quilts giveaway treats... so awesome!
Wow!!! Winning this one was such a treat because I am a big fan of Edyta Sitar and her designs (I'm currently having a ton of fun working on her Hop to It design). Such a wonderful array of treats, including her beautiful new book, Reasons for Quilts, which is full of inspiration and eye candy. I need to start finishing some things, because I really want to jump in and make that Wagon Wheel quilt (she even sent the templates to go with it!).

Many, many thanks to Jemellia and the Fat Quarter Shop for hosting and sponsoring the Style Stitches challenges, and to Laundry Basket Quilts for the wonderful treats!


  1. You really did have a good month. That kit you bought catches my eye too. Great choice.

    I am going to have to look up that Farmer's Market pattern. That is right up my alley.

  2. I love with the little apples fabrics! great choice!!

  3. Yay for all your wins! I love the quilt kit. The pattern goes so well with the fabric. awesome way to spend your gift certificate!
