Stashing & Playing with Rainbows!

The sun is shining in Music City this fine Sunday my friends, and that makes my heart sing!!!

Yesterday, our family in North Carolina got to play in the snow!  Isn't our world a wonderful creation?  
Days like today make it easy to honor the greatest Creator of all.....  
Thank you Father for the gift of this beautiful world!!!

Yesterday was Scrappy Saturday, but I have already finished up the blocks I originally planned to do each month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in PURPLES which is the color for February.  Instead, I chose to work on last year's RSC project - Rainbow Pineapples.  You can click on the name of the quilt to see the history of how this quilt has come together.

These are the green-aqua-blue-purple sections of the flying geese border.  They will be added to these.....

.... pink-red-orange-yellow flying geese sections.  The good news is that I finished the quilt top yesterday!!!  WooHoo!!!!  It turned out every bit as beautiful as I imagined it!  But you will have to wait until tomorrow for The Great Reveal - sneaky right?!?  LOL!!!  I think it will be worth the wait, so be sure to come back tomorrow to see :*D

As for the Stash Enhancement Report - there's a little eye candy to share....

This is NOT my quilt - it is a picture on the pattern!
This is the Bargello Tree Skirt pattern designed by Martha Eddy of Eddy & Eddy Designs.  
Isn't it amazing?

I've been on the lookout for quite a while now for a pattern to make a quilted tree skirt.  This past Christmas I was really unhappy that I had not made one yet and had to put the old one out.  So making a new one has become one of my focus projects this year.  And I know better than to wait until closer to Christmas to start it LOL!!!

I really didn't want to go with the traditional red and green - actually I could SO see this in blue and white!  But then I found this gorgeous Jason Yenter fabric in cool blues and greens and immediately fell in love...

Then I picked up these to go with it....

That rich royal blue will go where the black is in the pattern picture.  And the best part is that I got all these fabrics at sale prices!!!  You know I love that!!!  I just need one more green to finish up the fabrics for this project, so hopefully I will be able to start it for my NewFO Challenge project next month :*D

I have not done any hand stitchery this week, but I managed to get quite a bit done on my Shore Thing Scarf.  Hopefully I'll have a finish to share later on this week =^..^=

Finally, I want to annouce the WINNER of my fabulous giveaway of Happy Town fabrics by Jacquelynne Steves of The Noble Wife blog .....

Mr. Random Number Generator pulled up a number .... and the WINNER is.....

Denise who blogs over at Count It All Joy!!!

Denise :) said...
Haha! Why stop at the newsletter?!?! I went from doing that to following her on twitter and on facebook, too! LOL!! You're right -- she's very talented ... why am I just learning about her??!!! :)

Congratulations to Denise!  I have to say I was really tickled when I saw her name come up next to the number!  Denise is a wonderful bloggy friend to so many of us, and she has several grandchildren who will definitely benefit from these fabrics in her crafty little hands :*D

Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday!

Hugs & Blessings!

  1. WOW! I LOOOVE that tree skirt and in Yenter fabrics??? wow..... LOVE your geese too BTW, are you part of the yenter fan page on FB? you should join, Jason Yenter is on there too!!

  2. Teresa, as usual your posting is leaving me speechless AGAIN. I love the new fabric for your tree skirt and really, really can't wait to see your Rainbow finish of the pineapples and flying geese. I know it will be one of my favorites even before I see it!
    Aren't those sales fun? I'm running out of space to put more fabric though.

  3. Your tree skirt will be absolutely fabulous in the fabrics/colors you have chosen! I can hardly wait to see your progress on this one!

  4. Eye candy! Love all your beautiful pictures. Pretty pretty. The geese are perfect, too.

  5. A finished top but no photos to share!? Absolute torture I say. Beautiful tree skirt pattern. Hope it is done in time for next year.

  6. Congratulations to Denise. That tree skirt is breathtaking! And I cannot wait to see it in the colors/fabrics you chosen. It will be absolutely stunning, I'm sure!

    I just love your colorful flying geese. They just make me smile.

  7. Oh, you tease! I can't wait to see scrappy pineapples. My mouth is watering!
    I think your version of that tree skirt will be prettier than the original. Those are gorgeous fabrics--and that blue will be a great background.
    I laughed out loud when I saw Denise had won. She had quite a lucky streak a while back. Maybe she is ready to mount another run!

  8. That pineapple quilt is going to be GORGEOUS! I can't wait to see it all finished! I am literally speechless about your soon to be tree skirt in those fabrics. I will be waiting with bated breath to see the outcome of that one! You are so talented!

  9. Congrats to Denise! Lots of eye candy here. Love that royal blue.

  10. Yeah for Denise!! She is a sweetie!! And so talented too!!

    Your FG are gorgeous - I'm waiting...!!!!


  11. I have ancient flying geese which have been disassembled, in the process of being recut more accurately than the old template and scissor days 30 years ago, and stitched. What I am going to do with all of these federal blue, and burgundy flying geese I don't have a clue, but they are going to be made into something!

  12. Oh Teresa, thank you *so* much!! I know that Sawyer, in particular, will enjoy this fabric in some form or fashion!! Wow == that Bargello Tree skirt is *brilliant*!! And that Jason Yenter fabric??? WHOA!!! And I love your Rainbow Pineapples! They're looking so good!!! :)
