But first...

I had a win myself.  I am doing the Quilt Doodles BOM and entered my photo onto the flicker page.  Well my name was drawn and I won a $20 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop.

This is what I bought.  A Moda charm pack called "Joy Batiks".  I bought an extra one so I can make some Christmas Table Runners.  I also got the "Lil Crumblers" ruler by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.  And finally a little pair of scissors and a measuring tape.  A girl can't have enough

Next up...the progress on my Flower Basket by Cheri Payne.  I just have to finish the last two flowers and add the borders.  This was a fun project.  I plan on keeping an applique project ready to go for evening hand work.

I finished my Midwinter Blues...sort of.

Here it is before borders.

And here it is with borders.  I'm not really happy with the border fabric.  It is blue with different shades of brown oak leaves.  Doesn't really go with the CW fabric in the pieced blocks.  I guess I will have to go buy some fabric (Oh Darn) that I like for the borders.

Now let me see there was something else.....

Oh right the Winners.

First up the winner of the book is:

Barbara Woods of Wont-to-be Quilter.  Congratulations Barbara. 

The winner of the Traveling Stash is:

Katie of Snuggle Up With a Dish From Karma.  Congratulations Katie

I will be sending an email to both winners asking for addresses.

Thanks to everyone who entered.  Tomorrow I will be having a giveaway for another book so be sure to come back.  Enjoy the weekend and thanks for visiting.

Hugs, Cathy

What a fun little shopping spree you had!
Your flower basket is coming along beautifully--I especially like your choice of basket fabric!
I just finished my MWB last night, and I'm not thrilled with my border fabric. Yours looks good from here! : )

FQS is one of my favorite on line stores!!!
Applique is a good evening project... your flower basket is lovely!
Love your Midwinter Blues... I think your border looks great, but if your not happy, then it's a good excuse to go fabric shopping!

I've enjoyed seeing a few finished Mid Winter Blues quilts in blogland and hope to be adding mine to the mix soon, but I've been too busy the last few days to do any work on it. I'm really 'SORRY' that you have to go shopping for just the right fabric - poor girl! LOL

that basket of flowers is coming along beautifully~!

i agree, the border on your midwinter blues is very nice. i also know how it is when you don't think you have just the right fabric on a piece . . . best not to compromise when one has that feeling.

congrats to the lucky winners~!
