It's been awhile since I've won any give-a-way goodies and today's mail contained a jackpot!

I entered a give-a-way on Amy Bradley Designs web site (specifically on her blog) and look what I won.  A T-shirt, a quilter notepad, quilters note cards, and a Quilt Diva Pin!  Amy Bradley is one of my favorite designers.......I feel like the things she designs are things that are running around in my brain but I'm not talented enough to express them and get them out of my head.  Check out her web site for her fabrics, patterns, and goodies.  She has the best sense of humor and her designs reflect her quirkiness!

Thank you so much for a wonderful array of fun quilting goodies!  I love them all!

I'm helping my friend, Joyce, make a charity quilt.  I'll post more details at some time in the future.  Anyway, she wanted me to make border blocks and gave me some yardage of the fabrics that she's using in the main blocks.  I was to make the border blocks 12 1/2" x 6 1/2" and make them anyway I wanted using only the fabrics she gave me.  I made 26 total blocks, two of each design.  One of the blocks isn't in the pictures simply because it looked lonely all by itself.  ;)
Two of each were made- (only one of each is pictured);

Two of each were made- (only one of each is pictured);

You'll notice that several of the blocks are two-6" blocks joined side by side.

Someday I'll have a picture of the full quilt and the details
 of the quilt.  (This may be quite awhile!)
