Treasures

I’ve been shopping over at Dreamy Whites and I have to show you what I bought!  I may have to have to start making cookies for the UPS man.  He’s been hauling the strangest size boxes up to the door.  I LOVE Maria’s blog “Dreamy Whites” and I love her decorating style but most of all I just can’t resist her shop.

Here’s my purchase this week…this old grape container…

The first thing I thought of when I saw it was fabric storage!  After it arrived (UPS man struggled getting it to the door) DH scrubbed it clean and carried it up to the studio for me.  The old Bistro chair that I bought from Maria several weeks ago sits next to it.  DH wants to re-paint the chair so much but he’s been warned not to get near it.  He doesn’t understand the old, worn, vintage look and chances are you’ll see this old chair on the cover of a few patterns in the future.

 

Now for Some Moda Fun

For a bit of MODA fun, click here and hop over to read about the “Go Fly A Kite” contest!  You could win PRIZES.  Yes, PRIZES.  Wait!  Don’t go yet until you see this next picture I have to share!  Karen Schiltz won third place with her version of “A Tisket, A Tasket” and you have to see it!  Ready?

 

A Prize Winning Quilt

Enlarge the picture so you can look at the quilting.  It’s just beautiful!  Congratulations Karen!

OK, now you can hop on over to the Moda website.  Or, if you already did I’ll never believe it because I’m sure the word “prize” wouldn’t lure you away go directly to their Facebook page and “like” them!

 

Hope you’re having a great week!

Hugs,

Anne

Andrea - I love Dreamy Whites too! I love the idea of using the grape container for fabric storage. I have my eye on an old wooden trough that would be perfect in the family room, filled with quilts…may just have to head out and buy it!

Anne - Thanks Vikki! I’m excited to have you as a blog reader. The blogging bliss book is great to read when starting out. I hope you’ll be up and running very soon. If you’re new to quilting there are some great quilting blogs on my links page.

I agree with all of you that Karen’s quilt is stunning. I just found out that it’s her very FIRST applique quilt! Can you believe it?

Pat - Wow, what a fantastic quilt and quilting. I recently finished these blocks and it ready for the printer but never thought about putting something in the center. I am jealous. Maybe the next one I will do that. Anyway it is beautiful and I loved every block as I was making them.

Pat - I must have printer on my mind instead of quilter. Better start proof reading my stuff.

Maria - Hi Anne,
Thank you so much for posting about the items you purchased from me!
Thank you Anne, you made my day! I am so happy that you are pleased with your purchases!
I love how you stored your beautiful bolts of fabric in the crate.
I can’t imagine how large that package ended up being after it was boxed up by the girls at Goin Postal!
: )
Your blog design is beautiful, and I really love your header.
Thank you again and I hope you have a wonderful week!
Take Care,
Maria
p.s. Karen’s quilt is beautiful, I wish I knew how to sew.
