Happy Monday and a Thank You

Happy Monday! We've been spending time at the beach every week this Summer and it feels so nice to be outdoors. I love the ocean and watching my family play in the water. It never gets old. I have been really fortunate to win fabrics and sewing goodies from generous sponsors. This lovely fat quarter bundle is from Lima Sews. I won a $50 gift certificate and I chose Art Gallery Fabrics' Emmy Grace bundle by Bari J.

This sweet bundle is from Cozy Quilt. This is the prize that Cozy Quilt gave out to the Row By Row Experience winner. Here's the story of how I was able to get this bundle. It was just days into the Row By Row Experience shop hop and a lady finished and brought in her quilt. She won the prize. Daniela of Cozy Quilt thought it was way too fast so she offered up a second prize to the second winner and that's how I won. I was the second winner! She was so generous with her prize package. When I came in she didn't have the bundle pulled together so she let me pick out what I wanted and a book they published. Daniela even signed the book for me. This was such a wonderful experience for me. Hubby and I with our children actually just took off for a little road trip, enjoyed new places and food. It was so much fun. We are going to have to do that again.

So what did I choose besides the book? 
- 30s reproduction prints from Moda called Chloe's Closets. I love reproduction prints.
- Minimalista from Art Gallery Fabrics. Love Art Gallery Fabrics. So fun, fresh, kind of vintage/retro   
- Reminisce and Sweet As Honey by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics.
- Botanics by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman. I love the organic look of the fabrics.

This is a beautiful bundle from Benartex called Bohemian Rhapsody. I love the rich blue colors. I am thinking of making a bag, but then I might collect some more colors to match and make a large quilt or better yet a skirt. So many decisions....

THANK YOU SO MUCH Benartex, Cozy Quilt and Lima Sews for these awesome prizes!
