I Won!!

I'm sooo excited! I won a giveaway, my very first prize, of this new magazine Quiltmaker's 100 blocks volume 2. Amanda of The Quilted Fish pulled my name out of her hat - thank you Amanda. She has a block featured in the magazine and on the front cover too - a cupcake block!
I can't wait for my prize to arrive!

This has been a really fun week for me. I've had so many visitors to my entry for the Christmas Quilt Show hosted by SewCalGal. It's been wonderful reading all the lovely comments every day - Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and thank you Darlene for hosting the event!

I haven't had much time for sewing but I have made a little progress on my EQ designed table runner. Here it is so far:
Well, that's two thids of it! I have actually sewn all three blocks and the 4 checkerboard strips together but it's not easy to photograph because it's so long and narrow. Looking at the photo is it very wonky - yikes! I'm hoping that's just an optical illusion and it will be straighter when I've added the border, quilting and binding.

Have a great weekend everyone!
