... winning

hey, i'm only human. i like winning as much as the next gal. so i was pretty delighted to win rachel's february round of her blogger's pillow party. especially since there were so many amazing pillows this month. and also since rita of red pepper quilts chose my pillow as the winner! rita's was one of the first blogs i discovered when i first stumbled into the world of modern quilting, and i've always found her sense of color and way with pattern so inspiring. so thank you, rita! and thank you, rachel for hosting this little pillow party! there's still time for you to enter the march round... so what are you waiting for?


my prize was this super generous fat quarter bundle of tanya whelan's delilah range, donated by randi at fresh squeezed fabrics. wow, thanks randi! while these colors aren't my usual cup of tea, i'm still totally charmed by these fabrics. i think they're calling out to be made into an old-fashioned patchwork quilt for a little one, no? maybe even a tied quilt?

ooh, now i'm feeling inspired!


  1. I saw your pillow on both of those sites. Congratulations!!

  2. I think it's great when you win fabric that is out of your normal palette. Sometimes it's good to be challenged and stretched.

  3. The perfect palette for an old fashioned little girl's quilt! Well done on winning :)

  4. Ah, so well deserved! It's a small, sweet world sometimes.

  5. You and Charlie Sheen have so much in common,what with the winning and the tiger blood. Well done! 75 entries, my heavens.
