Some people have said that I am one of the luckiest people they know. Maybe they are right, or maybe I am just always trying. As the commercial said "You can't win if you don't enter!"
Today in the mail I got a priority envelope that wasn't squishy. It was rather packed and a bit ragged from the trip. Not that ragged, but a corner was torn slightly and it had clearly been handled a lot. Sigh, I didn't take a picture because I was too busy opening it after I saw the return address.
This package was from one of my favorite vendors of hand dyed fabrics. Vicki Welsh of Field Trips in Fiber had emailed me a couple of days ago that I had won a prize in her Spring Break giveaway. The prize is a package of her "waste fabrics" from dying gradients. These are (I think) the end pieces that are left over after the yardage or fat quarters are cut. Whatever the case, they are wonderful pieces of hand dyed fabric that I know will not bleed on me. (Vicki is very diligent in her process.)
Here is a stack on my sewing table from the package.
I took two of the pieces along with a shirt that had a worn collar and a small hole in it and started cutting. Having watched The Quilt Show last night with a segment where Tula Pink showed a "tubular method" of piecing, I had a plan.
I used that method and made this piece of a quilt top. I am not sure where it will go or what it may become but I love it.
And in case you missed it - yes I am still sewing and making quilts! ha ha.
And if you are wanting some amazing hand dyed fabrics for you own sewing pleasure - Vicki has them in her Etsy store- Vicki Welsh Hand Dyed Fabrics. Go ahead and treat yourself to some fun.
