A Splendid winner.....

Hello everyone! It's another Splendid Sampler 2 Thursday!
While I'm still trying to catch up, this has been a very busy week (as most weeks are before Christmas) and, I finished  only 2 blocks from last week. Jane's First Aid and Pat's Antique Memories. You will note in the photo, a few favorite tools: Aurifil thread, Kai double bent scissors and Olfa's Frosted 1" x 12" ruler that is really 1 1/4" x 12 1/2". the ruler was perfect for cutting strips for Pat's Antique Memories.

Last week I told you if you left me a comment there would be a chance at winning a grab bag of assorted fabrics, from my lines with Moda that I'm using in my sampler.
There were 103 comments as of 10:00 pm eastern standard time, Wednesday.
 I loved reading every comment!
A random generator picked number 69 PAT IN TEXAS
Hope I counted correctly!
  Please email me, link in my profile, your info and I'll get the goods to YOU!
If Pat doesn't respond, I'll pick another name.

Fabrics used in Jane's block are from Hope's Journey, Evelyn's Homestead, and Harriet's Handwork.

Fabrics used in Pat's block, are from Hope's Journey, Lizzie's Legacy, Rachel Remembered, and Harriet's Handwork.

Today, there are 4 new blocks to sew, more catching up for me, LOL.

Have a great day stitching the blocks.
I'm going to finish decorating for Christmas.

Until next time.

  1. Hi! I just got my copy of Hope's Journey, and I can't wait to get started!

  2. Congrats to Pat. I love your fabrics in these blocks.

  3. I am so excited! When I read the post and saw "Pat in Texas" I thought how many Pats are in Tx?! It was me! I have several pieces and 4 of Betsys' books (hoping for more). I have made 3 or 4 quilts from the books. I'm sure the fabrics will find a home in a quilt one day. Thanks You

  4. I like using Olfa rulers and Kai scissors too! I have the small single curve scissors but not that particular Olfa ruler. Hmmm.
