We Have a Winner! Simply Spring Fleur Giveaway


Many thanks for all the really sweet comments on my latest fun creation, Simply Spring Fleur 
You all are the best!!
Simple Spring Fleur was created
 with Bari J's beautiful
Millie Fleur Fabrics
for Art Gallery Fabrics 
and features Aurifil 50Wt thread
for piecing and quilting
and Aurifil 12Wt thread
for crochet and embroidery.
Love, Love, Love!
It was quilted on a home sewing machine
(Janome 7700)
with the center diamond and border swags 
hand guided along
The QP Curve Templates by 
Linda Hrcka
I LOVE working with them and I'm never disappointed in the results.

There are two layers of Quilter's Dream batting
One Dream Wool One Dream Blend
Love the texture!
 If you missed the original Simply Spring Fleur blog post you can read all the details and see a boatload of images here.

I used my Printed Quilt Label tutorial to prepare a label for Simply Spring Fleur.
All was well until I pressed it with starch and the colored ink started running.  I had to wash the label again and settle with faded colors. 
I'd not seen this happen before -- It was just plain odd.
Anyhow, I realized the color actually matched the back of the quilt so I stayed with it.
Don't you just love this fantastic fabric line by Bari J?
Thanks for sharing your talents with us Bari J

Finally -- as promised... 

The very generous Linda Hrcka of The Quilted Pineapple 
is sponsoring a giveaway of an entire set of

 That's an amazing giveaway and one that won't disappoint.
Thank you so much Linda.
