Giveaway winner

The May edition of the Sew Mama Sew giveaway has now closed and the winner of my giveaway is Kate Yates from Florida, USA.  Kate's blog is Thread Everywhere, and she gets to photograph her quilts on lovely calm sunny days in Florida.  I hope you can make something nice and colourful with the fat quarters Kate.

Progress on my hexie blanket - because I don't like blog posts without photos

The answers to my question about whether you can knit or crochet were very interesting.  Many people have the skills, but find quilting more interesting, and faster.

The most commonly made items were scarfs, hats, socks and dish cloths! (who knew).

The most interesting comment was from Pauline who learnt to crochet, and 3 weeks later started to crochet her own wedding dress!  Yes, she finished it and she wore it!!  Well done Pauline.

Now I'm off to prepare my posts for the online Bloggers' Quilt Festival which opens on 15 May. You can read about it here, and enter 2 quilts if you're a blogger.
