Winner and Weekend Sewing

Thank you so much to everyone who entered my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day!!!  It was so fun to hear all about your Irish Chain experiences ;)   And now . . .  It is time to pick a winner of the irish Chain Quilts Prize Pack!!!

And the lucky winner is #902!!  Congratulations to Michele!!!  I have emailed you :)  

And on the weekend note . . . I did a lot of piecing and even got to some quilting ;)   I started off doing some Free Motion Quilting on my home machine for my "bitty bits mini's"   I always love getting back to quilting on my home machine.  I don't do it as often with the long arm now, but it is always fun every once and a while to do a quick little quilt on my home machine.   I love how quickly the motion comes back each time ;)  I quilted some echoed paisley's in Fantastico Superior Threads.   Doesn't that beautiful variegated thread just look awesome on the back!!!   

Then I switched it up from Free Motion to Straight Line quilting ;)   This was my first time doing matchstick quilting with multiple colors and I am absolutely in love with the outcome ;)  I started by stitching 10-15 lines in each color randomly placed and then, it was time to go back and fill in all of the gaps with a beautiful blending filler.    So fun!!!

I can't wait to share more of both of these projects!!!  And the best news, these projects also mark the completion of my Market Prep!!!!   All I have to do now is pack and I am ready to go!!  So excited!!!

I hope you had a super wonderful weekend as well!!!  Did you get any sewing or quilting in???

Pin It!
