I Won!! I Won!!

Wow, am I surprised!  I NEVER win anything lately.  I linked up two Fridays ago with Audrey at Glory Be Quilter who was hostessing TGIFF! I linked up my finished Dr. Seuss top along with the finished Sunny Side Cardigan for Miss L.  I had no idea I could win her giveaway for three Downton Abbey fat quarters!!

They are absolutely GORGEOUS!!  Now, I have to admit... I've never seen the show so I have no clue as to the background of the designs.  But they are really purdy :-) 

I've already got a plan for them too!  I was going to make another Survivor Rag Quilt for my grandma (who is a colon cancer survivor), but I think these fabrics are perfect to do a regular quilt for her.  Now... just have to pick a pattern.  I'm thinking a Yellow Brick Road quilt might be good.  Easy and it will highlight these fabrics beautifully! 

Only drawback of winning these gorgeous fat quarters.... I just spent money!  Lol.  I went out and found the matching fat quarter bundle over at Fat Quarter Shop and with their current promo of free shipping on orders of $40 or more, I just had to snag it up.  I should have enough to do a Yellow Brick Road, but if not... I'm sure I'll figure something else out.  To get my order to the $40 mark, I also snagged up a Feast Bountiful Harvest fat quarter pack along with some matching yardage to make a muchly needed table runner for my coffee table in my living room.  Hopefully I'll get my order by the end of the week and I'll have it to show off at next week's Sunday Stash post.

Thank you again to Audrey for the wonderful prize!!! Especially mailing it to the US from Canada :-)  You're awesome!

Hope everyone has a terrific Tuesday!


  1. Congratulations on your win! If you love period dramas, you just have to try and watch Downton Abbey, its fabulous. Gorgeous fabrics! TFS

  2. I am glad you can put the fabric to good use! Downton Abbey is on Netflix. I got sick in January and started watching it and got hooked!
