A Little Inspiration & Some Big Winners

Happy Independence Day!
Happy birthday America!

I found this photo while visiting over at The Inspired Room. I thought is was inspiring and the funny thing is- it looks just like my front porch, minus the banner... but I can fix that, right!?! Even better is that I have those pompoms in my hall closet right now... that we ended up not using for the wedding- woohoo!

I found this great tutorial recently on making patriotic placemats and thought I would share that with you! I love this table setting... it's from Something Sweet Designs blog. I haven't had time to whip any up yet... but I would love to! There is one with stars and 3 with the strips- too cute!

and then I also found this at Cheep Chic Home... I thought it was a fun idea!

Now let's pick some winners!
I loved the parade and the variety of Schnibbles we had this month! I was really surprised to see the fun variety of fabrics used... I think that State Fair is just a happy kind of quilt!

Carrie has picked one winner from each blog  randomly. Each of them will receive
 a layer cake of 12 Days of Christmas!

from Sherri's parade we have.... Regena of Quilt & Quilt Things blog.

from my parade the other winner is.... Di, from Quilting is Blissful.
