Lots to tell, and some pictures to show... First I just finished the NSPQ Cowboy quilt #3. NSPQ is a group out of my church that makes quilts for different groups. I took some fabric that had cowboy applique's that were intended to go on shirts. There was YARDS of this fabric. I chose to cut the appliques up into 4 inch squares and make pieced tops out of them. The first two did not have the vertical stripes in the top. YIKES!! I have enough squares left to make another top, maybe two!
I also finished the fabric weaving for the quilt jacket, and made fabric out of fibers. (I know this has a name, but it escapes me at the moment. ) I really like how the weaving turned out. This was my first attempt at sewing fibers together... I'm not sure what I think about the outcome.
Now for the part you have all been waiting for...
On March 23, it will be our one year anniversary in this house. As that day is Easter, I will draw the winner on March 24. To enter the drawing, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post. I will put each name on a slip of paper, and draw the winner. So what will the lucky winner receive? 4 fat quarters as shown to the right. OK, you see the fabric, very nice don't you think? But what is that, that, thing? It's not a pencil... You are right. That is a porcupine quill. It makes a great stiletto, and it will be included with the fat quarters for the lucky winner!
