A Win!

I was fortunate enough to win the grand prize for the HSTeria quilt along sponsored by Vicki Welsh a few weeks ago.  It was a package of her hand dyed scraps and a package of Mistyfuse (I have loaned that to my friend as she has never used the wonderful stuff).  I was pretty excited as I am more and more enamored of hand dyed fabric as I have used bits and pieces in my quilts recently.  I thanked her immediately but hadn't gotten around to getting the picture and posting-until today.  Thanks again, Vicki!!!

Aren't they beautiful?

I also won a bag of scraps at the Crazy 9 Patch on the second Friday of this month during scrappy hour where Martha demonstrates a new scrappy pattern and runs a sale on a fabric line or theme-one hour of happiness with door prizes, snacks and special drinks provided.

I had a couple of leftover Insulite hearts so made these the next day out of the scraps and some leftover binding.  Going to tuck these into my Spring box for next spring.  I don't hang mine so don't need a loop.

I have avoided orange since I retired (my school colors were orange and white) but it is sneaking into my fabrics again

Wow, you have a really nice bundle of hand-dyes there. Congrats!
Love the potholders. I LOVE orange - so much that I have a big orange purse that I should have thrown away at the end of last summer, but I just had to use it again this year. lol

I'm so glad you like the fabrics!

Those hand dyes don't look like scraps. Wow - what a great gift. All of your 'scraps'.

You lucky ducky!!! Those are not scraps. They are a yummy treasure.

Have fun with all your great prizes! I love orange, so really am wanting your potholders.
