Holy Cow Winning Hands2Help
This was our first year to participate in the Hands2Help campaign held by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. We are so honored to have joined 200 other quilters who made 876 quilts. How cow, imagine that, can you?? That’s an average of more than four quilts per person. It makes me so proud to be a small part of such a generous community that is quilters. I cannot say I am surprised one bit though as it matches all of the friends I have found here online.
Holy Cow #2
Those numbers above deserve a Holy Cow reminiscent of Harry Caray of the Chicago Cubs. If you were a part of those 200 quilters, Sue and I extend a sincere thank you to you. It seems that there are a plethora of suppliers who offered prizes of many sorts to the participants. From the long list of both the vendors as well as the recipients, it appears that most everyone received a gift. A big huge heartfelt thank goes out to each and every supplier/vendor for their donations.
From Sarah in Saturday’s mail came this beautiful fat quarter bundle of Northcott fabrics. All of them are from the Artisan Spirit Euphoria line which came out in 2016. Oooh, the pattern on the solid fabrics is just so fine, and the butterflies have that same background pattern with more detail. Gorgeous! I cannot wait to find a fun use for these pretties.
Holy Cow #3
Sarah also sent along a separate prize for “my quilting buddy”. From Pineapple Fabrics, it includes a sample color chart and a generous one-yard cut of Sangria. Oddly enough, before opening the package we had just been talking about Sangria. The Blake Sheldon song and the disappointing glass of wine we enjoyed, not the fabric because we weren’t aware of its existence.
We are DEFINITELY going to be using this color chart and Pineapple Fabrics in the future. Perhaps you’ve heard of them before and ordered from them? Oh, this fabric feels SO fine. I would like to thank them personally and will do so in the best way possible by throwing my business their way. Oooh, what should be purchased first?!
