The Summer of Luck

    The summer of 1967 was named the Summer of Love and I'm dubbing 2016 the Summer of Luck.  I've won 5 prizes  through link ups and give aways this summer!  Can you believe it?  I can't either, but for now I'm just basking in the luck.  Two packages have arrived so I thought I would share them with you.

     The first package to arrive at my house was this wonderful bundle of orange fat quarters that I won in a give away held by Carrie of the  Zen Quilter.  She was cleaning up the stash and found herself with an abundance of orange fat quarters.




           I've got plans to use many of these fat quarters in one or two charity quilts...I'm thinking a cross quilt with some turquoise blocks as well. Carrie thought I should keep some of this  orange goodness myself so I'm thinking I'll make a quilt for my living room.  It sure would be nice to have a quilt with some of Carrie's fabric in it. She's such a wonderful person. Here's a closeup of this lovely bundle.



     I worked for the second win.  I won this fat quarter bundle at the final link up for the Rainbow Rose quilt along held at Modern Quilters Ireland.  The wonderful LoveFabrics   donated this bundle and they mailed it all the way across the ocean to me.   How awesome is that. 

     

    The fabric is Little Bird by Camelot Design Co.   It's so pretty!  Don't you just love the little birds and mushrooms.  I'm not sure what I'll do with the little bundle.  I'm thinking it would make some nice gift type things.

     I'm linking up with the man who loves to flaunt his stuff, the wonderful Mollie Sparkles who hosts Sunday Stash.
I'll show you the rest of the loot when I get it.

  5. New fabric is always wonderful but winning it is that bit sweeter! Those oranges are gorgeous, I found that I lacked them in my stash so made a concerted effort to correct that!

  8. Congrats on your winnings, Lisa! I couldn't think of a better person to receive all those fun prints. I think you should use some of Carrie's fabrics in a project for yourself. It's like always having a little bit of her.
