Congratulations on the blogiversary and more importantly your 27th Anniversary. As for the giveaway I'm good with 21/2" squares, 41/2" squares. 5" squares or 2 3/4"x 5" rectangles, whatever you feel like cutting. I like just about every color but would love some that remind you of spring or summer.It's always so much fun to get fabrics that someone else picks out so I leave that up to you.

Lots of choices for me...but it will be a lot of fun to put something extra special together for Rina and I will love focusing my color selections on Spring and I am tired of Winter!!! I want to let everyone know I loved all your comments and choices...I wish I could send you all something...if only mailing didn't cost so much:(  Rina I will be emailing you shortly to find out where to send your goodies:)

I did get started on my January 2104 BOMs this weekend.  First up was my Sew Kitchsy block from the Quiet Play website.  Kristy has her examples so cutely done in red and aqua but after just completing a top in those colors I needed to change it up a bit this year.  My Kitchen just happens to be brown and green and the colors remind me of the retro look so I chose a bunch of fat quarters that I think will look great for this top and keep that retro touch intact in that color scheme.
Love how the first block turned out:

then I got started on the Quilt Doodle 2014 BOM.  Cindy has put together a fun mystery top for us this year featuring 2 1/2 inch blocks and strips and this months row has 7 cutie patootie snowman.  I have the first one done and the rest of his friends are in pieces.  He doesn't have his nose yet but I love how this is going to look.  I love how Cindy has them looking all around each in a different direction.  I am already wondering what else they see on the quilt top...Don't you wish you knew... I do!
Keep Stitchin'


  1. Congratulations to Rina, and the Mystery BOM, sounds so fun and cute.

  2. Can't believe I won! It's going to be so much fun seeing what fabrics you pick out and having them already cut is an added bonus! Thanks So Much! Rina
