Welcome to my blog!

Glad to see you here, Welcome to my blog. I love quilting, fabric, colors, etc. and am a mother to two boys 22 and 16, grandma to one beautiful little girl. I work as an RN in Labor and Delivery so I get to see little babies come into this world and help their moms and families through it. I love my job. Many of my co-workers are quilters too, so we like to chat about it while we can. I love comments, so please let me know what you think, or just say hi!

Fabric Love! DS Quilts - some purchased and some won!

I love getting packages like this in the mail!

I ordered this charm pack from Etsy since we don't have any JoAnn stores where I live.

Look how cute it is, tied up with a fabric bow.

In case you don't know, these fabrics are by Denyse Schmidt and are only found at JoAnn stores under the name DS Quilts and the lines are Picnic and Fairgrounds.

Not sure what I am making yet but some will be used in my hexagon quilt for sure.

So a few days later, I entered a giveaway from the Happy Cottage Quilter and won this!
6 fat quarters and 1/2 yard of more of the same line!  How great is that.
She even included some cute patterns from the store and some matching buttons.

What a cute note card too.
Thanks so much Jocelyn!
Go check out her blog here.

Now I will be trying to decide on what to make.  I have been thinking about trying a dresden plate 
and these fabrics would be just perfect for that I think?  Any other ideas for me?

wow Jodi, I think a Dresden plate pattern would be perfect for these fabrics. Can't wait to see what you create. Thanks for entering my giveaway. Enjoy the fun fabrics.

How awesome for you to win that fabric! I have it too and I have NO idea what I'm going to do with it!

I have been wishing for that line to make up a quick picnic blanket...I think it would be perfect for that! (Sadly, I haven't won any...or purchased any! hehe)

I just love fabrics. I'm a true fabricaholic and I sometimes have a hard time cutting into a piece!! LOL Is anyone else like that!!??

Congrats on your good luck. I had a streak of luck for awhile but it seems the torch was passed. :-)
