Part Two Of the Summer of Luck

     When I posted here about my summer of luck I promised to share the rest of my goodies when I received them. Well that time is now.  Oodles of fabric goodness arrived in my house during September.  Here it is October and I've taken until now to post about it.

     I received a gift card for Sew Sisters for a ThrowBack Thursday blog post.  I wasted no time at all choosing these beautiful low volume prints to add to my stash.



     The one on the right is Anna Maria Horner and the two on the left are Carolyn Freidlander.  Here's a closeup so you can see the design on the middle fabric.



     Isn't it divine!  I love Carolyn Friedlander's graphic prints and Anna Maria Horner has always been one of my favourites.

    I also won a Gift Certificate for Canadian National Fabric during Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts Week of Giveaways.  It was a pretty big gift certificate so I picked up lots here.

First up is  2 1/2 yards of a Colorworks solid which I'll use for a background for a community outreach donation quilt.  The beautiful  fabric on the top is a 1/2 yard of Crystalia in Opal.  It's a pretty amazing fabric and I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun figuring out what to do with it.  It should get my creative juices going.


     
     Then  I picked  a 1/2 yard each of these two beauties.  They are On the Wing Wildflowers in Robins Egg and Suncatcher. Won't they look smashing together in a quilt.


      I'll also have fun playing around with these two Royal Retro fabrics.  That's green and blue grid on the left and Tear Drops multi on the right.



     And last but not least I picked up some more 1/2 yards to add to the low volume stash.  These two are from the Modern Background Paper collection by  Zen Chic.


     But wait that's not all.  I also won one of the link ups with 
for the Snowflake Shimmer quilt along held by Yvonne of Quilting Jetgirl  I won a pack of Aurifil Thread.  I love Aurifil thread so I was pretty excited to win this prize.



     The Color Story collection curated by Sharon Holland.  This is a really pretty and fun collection with  5 small spools of 50 weight on the top row and 5 small spools of 12 weight on the bottom.  I guess I'll be hand quilting eventually.

     We'll that's the haul from the Summer of Luck.  I feel really really lucky winning so many prizes this summer...may you be just as lucky.  I'm linking this post up to Molly Sparkles  Sunday Stash.
