My package Wednesday............

I don't enter a lot of giveaways, but now and then the prize is something I would like.  This was the case in Holly's giveaway.


If you go to this post on her blog she talks a little about how she made them.  They are really pretty and I'm glad I won them.







Holly also does thread sketching which is something I like to do.  She shows several pieces on her blog, one of an old truck that I thought was really neat.





She also included some notecards with prints of her paintings on them and a gift tag.

Thanks Holly, I really like my winnings!

Holly lives in Canada and has wonderful nature photos too.




I spent the last 2 evenings sewing the blocks together on the triangle quilt.  I probably could have distributed the colors a little more evenly, but I decided I was done playing with the layout.  I needed the 2 design walls that the blocks were on upstairs so I can take some daylight photos of some more quilts.  I never got a good photo of "Chocolate and Caramel" and it is going to be mailed away today so it is photo day at my house.

The triangle quilt looks great! That red/gold batik in Holly's blocks might make a great border for it!

lucky you for winning such beautiful blocks!
And your triangle quilt is gorgeous! I love to play with the layout too, but at some point you really have to just stop and sew it together. The possibilities are endless and if I had to wait until I was done playing, I would never finish anything ever :)

Congrats Wanda.

Beautiful blocks from Holly! Your quilt top looks fantastic and I think the distribution of color is great. Now to get it quilted and bound, it is sure to be another stunner!

Your triangle quilt turned out great. I love it. Holly's blocks are so pretty. Don't you just love beautiful handmade notecards? I usually can't bring myself to use those kind of cards but end up saving them as works of art.

Congrats on the win! Those are great blocks.
I love the new quilt. You've inspired me to pull some batiks but I can't
start anything until I finish my challenge quilt.

Seen from a distance (as we readers see it) the triangles quilt appears to more about value and tint/shade than colour. And in that respect I think it dances!

Your triangle quilt glows -- it's a very cheerful, happy quilt.

Thanks so much for the complement,and for showing my blocks. It kind of gives you a little thrill when you go to another blog and see your own work.
I'm so very glad that you like them.
