And the Packages Keep Coming!

Yesterday there was a wonderful package left in my mail box!  Stephaine at Quarter Incher held a contest on her blog to guess the gender of her 2nd baby and I was the lucky winner!  I guessed it would be a boy, her adorable daughter picked my number and I was sent these fun "boy" fabrics and some yummy 50 wt Aurifil thread.
Lucky, lucky me!

I received two fat quarters from Heather Ross' line Briar Rose and two half yard cuts of some jeweled toned Art Gallery Pure Element solids.  The giveaway was sponsored by Cucire.  I was instantly inspired to put the fabrics into a quilt and quickly had everything cut into 4.5" squares. (BTW - Thanks Cucire for your generous cuts on your FQs.)

I am still playing with the pieces on my design wall but hope to share a finished quilt top soon. 
(In fact, I have lots of things to share as soon as I get pictures taken.  Let's just say I spent most of the holiday sewing!)

Linking up with Blossom Heart Quilts for Sunday Stash, Anything Goes Monday at Stitch by Stitch, andPatchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.
