Yesterday, I got this wonderful note from Nancy Roberts, who just happened to be the winner of my fabric giveaway on my blog. She sent me photos of what she did with some of the fabric, and it is just wonderful!
Hi Kathy-...I won the fat quarters and fabric bag on your blog last August and told you I'd show you when I used some of the fabric in a project. Well I chose one of the fat quarters and made the dress for this donation doll to be given to children in Haitian orphanages and medical clinics. And her twin brother has a shirt made from selvages. I've published them on my blog if you get a chance to take a look. The Urban Landscape fabric is perfect for her little dress! Many thanks. Best regards, Nancy Roberts
I think she is right. The dress is super cute, and the selvages look wonderful too! You can visit her blog here.
Meanwhile, stay tuned, I have a lot of blog entries to post this next week. First, I wanted to show off my new tote bag for the Houston Quilt Festival. It is my first foray into mixed media and involves a certain magazine cover....
I also am planning to show my entry for Quilt National, that is sadly not going to the show. This happens to all of us, more frequently than you might expect, but onward is the slogan around here. And, I am also part of a blog tour for Quiltmaker's 100 blocks. They have published my block using Urban Landscapes fabric and the magazine will be available November 17. I will also have a giveaway on my blog for one of the magazines! And it would not be entirely unreasonable to expect a post about the Houston International Quilt Festival, since I am headed there for the weekend and looking forward to the spectacular quilt viewing, shopping, and hanging out with friends!!
