Eye Candy, Candy Bar and Winners!

Have you ever wondered what fabric designers' homes look like?
 check out this link to see a
tour of Amy Butler's home.

 It is just beautiful and has such a relaxing feel to it.
It's just what you would have guessed her home to look like!

Yes, I could relax nicely in this living room!

and this is Candy Bar Pinwheels.
Even if you are not a part of Le Petite you might be interested
in this Moda Bake Shop pattern.

Here is my "Candy Bar" quilt. I am putting vintage buttons on it, in the centers of the pinwheels to help them stand out a little bit more.  I had used this fabric when I made my "fabric Easter eggs" and had the other half of the charm pack left over. Then I had a ME panel that coordinated... so I kind of cut that up to use as the
border... giving it an instant border... the green red and yellow are all one piece. 
It took no time at all to whip up, so if you have lots of gardening to get started on... this next Le Petite project won't interfere too much! 

Thank you to all of the Le Petite participants!
Your parade of quilts, once again, were
fantastic! Brocante was a great pattern and I loved seeing all of
the quilts you made from the pattern!

And along with parades... there are winners...

Not one but two....

The "always so generous" Carrie Nelson is
giving a
Collection for a Cause Fat Eighth bundle
to two of our parade participants.
And the winners of the bundles are:
From Sherri's parade: Michelle
From my parade: Kim

A sweet little gift certificate from Quilt Taffy goes to:

Congratulations to our winners and a big thank you to our Featured Quilt Shops
who donated prizes for our winners!

Please check out their stores... they do carry the patterns for Le Petite
 and Quilt Taffy has ideas for kits too!

Congratulations to all the Winners!

Kim said...

Oh my! Is that "Kim" me? It seems there is a plethora of Kims who quilt, but I went back and looked at your parade again, and I didn't SEE any other Kims! How really, really cool! Thanks! (And I sincerely mean that "thanks" even if it's some other Kim--because I appreciate all you do for us each and every month!) And thanks, too, to the ever generous Ms. Nelson--I do love her patterns dearly!
