Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Lucky!

Since my broken wrist happened a few weeks ago, I've spent a lot of time looking at other quilters's blogs and checking out blog hops, too!  Often, they will be having a giveaway, and if you comment, you're put into the competition for the giveaway.

Well, the quilting goddesses must have been smiling on me recently because I have been lucky enough to win not one, but TWO giveaways!

First of all, I've been following Quiltmaker's blog hop celebrating the release of Volume #13 of their 100 Blocks issue.  And I won a copy of both Volume 12 and Volume 13!  Plus a charm pack of Rhapsody by Sue Zipken for Clothworks.  Lots of beautiful blues!



Then, Brooke of  Silly Mama Quilts was featured on Sew Mama Sew's blog a week or so ago, with a sweet table runner tutorial that I loved, and definitely would like to make.  Over on her blog, she was giving away a beautiful fat quarter bundle of  Blush and Bloom which the table runner is made out of.  And I won that giveaway, too!  Oh. My. Goodness.


So pretty!  And so very generous!  Thank you, Brooke!  Maybe I will use a few of these fat quarters for my Wiggle Time quilt!


Meanwhile, in my continuing quest to find projects to sew on that don't require a lot of cutting, I remembered these blocks that I made back in January, but never did anything else with.


So, I did pull them out and started working on sewing up the rows.  This is going to be a happy and fun quilt for someone, one of these days!


Like Sandra said in her Saturday post - Sewing is my therapy!  I can't go very long without spending time in my sewing room!
