Giveaway Winner and Progress

Life has been crazy lately with lots of family visiting, a bad stomach bug making the rounds, and the normal chaos of raising young children.  I did, however, manage to choose a giveaway winner (via the random number generator) and Karen of Indiana, won the pillow cover.  It's already in the mail to her.  Thanks to all of those who entered and started following this blog.  I wanted to share how I came up with that unique color combination: I love this Alexander Henry fabric (pictured below right) and grabbed fabrics from my stash that matched the palette:


This weekend, with Cassie and my sister visiting, we pulled a few late-nighters and I worked on my Jacob's Ladder quilt, I am a 1/4 of the way there!

I know that it was a while ago now, but I wanted to share a picture of the flowers I received for Mother's Day.  This lovely color combination needs to be put into a quilt asap!

I actually have my husband trained pretty well, as he also gave me these "flowers" for the occasion as well:

Next up, I will be participating in the bi-annual Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Thanks for reading!
