Good Morning March! Happy to see you!

Good Morning March!  I am glad to leave February in Nova Scotia behind.  We are now in the home stretch to Spring!

I want to announce the winner of my fabric postcard giveaway....Congratulations to  STEPHANIE
She blogs at Jak and Will.

I have already contacted her and I will be mailing out her fabric postcard in the next day or so.

Thanks to all who commented on my last blogpost for a chance to win and thanks so much for following along with me.  It means a lot.

Here is the amazing fabric postcard that I received from Eglea in Brazil.  Isn't it just fabulous!  A miniature work of art! On the back, she wrote a lovely quote..."Friendship is a love that never dies" by Mario Quintana, Brazilian poet.  Such a nice touch.  Thanks so much Eglea!  This postcard is such a lovely addition to my collection.  A treasure, for sure!


I am declaring March is Machine Quilting Month....at least in my sewing room!  I have four quilt tops pieced and ready for quilting and I need to have them all finished up and ready to gift by the end of March.   I can only show one quilt top since the others are still a surprise.

This one is for my nephew, Jamie.   He chose the pattern and the fabric choices.  Not hard to choose,  Black and White Kona!  I am using Ikea Nummers on the back and I have a really nice text print for the binding.  It will look wonderful in his swanky downtown apartment.  Probably straightline quilt this one.  Not sure yet. Just might bust out the Free motion.

I think this will be an awesome binding.  


I hope you get some time to yourself today to do something you enjoy!
