Lucky night for me at guild meeting!

tuppermomJune 26, 2012

It was the last meeting of the year tonight and we save all of out block-or-the-month draws and do them at the last meeting. I won the Dec. blocks, which were 33 Sno-globe blocks! I also won the FQ draw and came home with 15 floral FQS!

Those are really neat! I particularly like the Currier & Ives looking one on the dark blue background! It'll make a fun quilt...just ask Marsha!

You are so lucky!!!! I really needed those sno globes last year ~lol~ lucky girl! You will be able to make a few quilts with your winnings.

Hoffman has a really classy free Sno globe quilt pattern.

I made up my own pattern & layout when I made my quirky Snoglobe quilt for my niece's Christmas present. I hand embroidered snowflakes in the globe part (thank you again Teresa for showing me how!) and I added additional wool batting behind the globe part to poof out the round globe - trapunto.

I am envious of your winnings! So much you can do with these blocks. I can't wait to see what you make. They are fun to work with.

Another Sno globe quilt is definitely in my future.

I am sure not into Christmas kitsch, and aside from a tree with natural elements on it, and a creche on the mantle seldom decorate.............but I'd make a huge exception for a quilt made with those blocks! That's about the cutest Christmas blocks I've ever seen. Very creative. Congrats! Hey 15 FQs are noting to sneeze at either.

What great winnings! How fun for you. It makes my little bag of Marimekko scraps seem kind of puny. But I'll take what I can get. Congratulations. Lois

I am going to have so much fun with the Snow Globes!
Marcia your snow globe quilt is lovely!

The exciting thing about winning the FQs is that I am making a quilt for the family shelter that my sister works at to be used as a raffle quilt and .....you guessed it.....it is all florals!

I don't often win anything at our guild meetings but even a single FQ in the membership draw is exciting.
