Three Takes Thursday

>> Thursday, December 10, 2009

This week I received my copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks that I won on their blog during the giveaway. I also won a second copy which I have already given away to my mother-in-law. She was as excited as a kid at Christmas! I was excited that my second copy finally arrived for me:)

See that funky stripe fabric in the picture? It's binding. It's already for me to use with this:

The quilt top that I'd won too! I thought it was going to be the fabrics to make the quilt top. Imagine my surprise when I unfolded this beautifully stitched bright retro funky top! I was thinking of completing it to use in a spring raffle, but I kind of like looking at it in my studio. We'll see. At least as a curtain it's already finished:)

Yesterday was a surprisingly productive quilting day for me. I finished putting together the remaining mitten ornaments for my husband's class. His class each made one and sounds like they missed me, but had fun anyway.

Another friendship bag! This one is for my daughter's teacher as the last day before Christmas break is her birthday. Christmas gift fit inside exactly - like we'd planned it! My daughter picked out the fabrics - and wants one just like it:) {link to the Friendship bag tutorial is in my sidebar}

I also completed my December Season of Grace stockings! Yes, started and finished in one day. Two stockings. I'm still in shock a bit myself. These were fun to make and made up of Christmas selvages (remember all the donated scraps? I kept all the selvages and still have a bit leftover).

If you click on the picture you can see the items better. One picture because I had to keep it THREE takes!

There's still time to enter my 100 post giveaway too. It's the post beneath this one. Good luck!

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

Hi Joy, I received my copy (that I ordered)for the same magazine. Can I be honest? I loved a few of the blocks like PamKittyMorning and HappyZombie. But some of them? They were really pretentious. Some of the blocks were silly to me. At least from my perspective. Not practical at all and not inspiring. But that is just my take I guess. I was just a little disappointed in it. OH well.

Oh....I love those little mittens and the selvage stockings are wonderful! How creative!
