Lucky Day

I was at my quilting group last week when I purchased some raffle tickets, and imagine my surprise when someone rang me the next day to let me know that I had won second prize!  This is my lap quilt and a bottle of wine as well!

Which reminds me of my lucky streak before we left for our vacation – our quilting group has a monthly competition.  You purchase a pattern for 50 cents and the corresponding fabric which has all been pre-cut.  Sew it up, bring it back and you are in the draw to win approximately 25 blocks. The other blocks are used to make a quilt for a charity. I won these blocks two weeks running!

So now I have to make the quilts.  I will donate one to a  charity for sure – the other one I will make for my mother-in-law.  Time to get myself organised.  Hopefully will have some finished quilts to show in the next month or so.
