Another bit of Good News: Another Win.

Have ya'll been over to Sandra Kaye's Blog?  Well, if you haven't been it's the place to go to for a color fix. Sandie loves color and I love color so that's where I go to brighten my day.  She has the most interesting projects.  Fun things, some I would love to make. Really she always has the best things to ooh and aah over. 

A little while ago she had a give-away. Yep, you guessed it.  I won!  
I'm so excited about this pattern - it's paper piecing and this book is so thick. (Thick = lot's of work = lots of fun!)  I really want to make a tree skirt for my daughter.  Then I noticed it's 60" x 60".  What a shame just too big for her little apt. But just right for ME!  And we really need a new one because ours is too small.  I never think to make a new one for us because ours is so nice. Do you see a solution here?  I make me this one and give my daughter the one that's too small.  I think this is a Win-Win!  

I know a quilt designed by Judy Niemeyer is going to be complex. I've seen her other quilts. I'm not scared.  I plan to do my paper piecing Petite Jardin flower quilt to get more paper piecing experience. In the meanwhile I can be on the look out for the perfect Christmas Fabrics.  

Thank Sandie for the great opportunity to make this fun quilt. 

Happy Stitching,
Nicey Winning Linda
