Sorry ladies, but there won't be another drawing for the Stack and Whack Dresden's. Marilyn's package is going out tomorrow with all the Dresdens...large and small. At MY urging, I told her to not even consider it being piggy to accept what she rightly won...first choice to decide what she wanted. We would never consider her piggy for taking her prize!
I only tossed out the option of maybe having a second drawing if the winner was one of the gals who had asked for just one OR the other size. I'm thrilled that these are going to be used and enjoyed by someone else. I was ready to bin them. I'll have to give second thought to my clean-ups from now on. Once again thanks so much for playing along!
Something else I forgot to share...the backing for the SLOL quilt! I always love how Crazy Mom Quilts does her backs with that strip of pieced fabric in the middle somewhere. SO when I picked out fabrics for the backing I took some that I had bought from Thousands of Bolts for just this purpose and ended up having this 15" or so missing in length. Perfect! Just the right size for a fancy strip.
Now some of you know that I had issues with Homestead Hearth on their inability to stay on time with sending out these monthly packages, but I never had problems with the packages themselves and they always sent more than enough fabric to make the blocks...waayyy more! I have 2 ziplocks full of leftover, unused fabric pieces. SO I sat down and started making blocks. Strip by strip I combined, with pieces I either didn't care to use, or had left over after cutting the size I needed! Sewed them all together and got a fabulous section to work!! The top is the blue plaid cotton and the bottom the red lighter plaid. I like how it turned out and it saved me cutting up another yard and half of cotton to get just that little section. It's a great idea!
