Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!!!

Soooooo many of you entered the drawing for Jacquelynne's lovely fabric panels, that I decided to draw two names and give away both panels to two lucky winners!  And the lucky winners are.......
the green panel and fat quarters (on the right) for Nadine at
 
and the pink panel and fat quarters (on the left) for Linda at
 
 
And while so many of you were adding your names for a chance to win those lovely panels, here is what I chose for a tabletopper..............
 
I looked at those pears and first thing I thought was.........fussy cut them!!! And so I did..........
If you stop by on Monday, you will see the finished tabletopper featured "on the line"!  I amazed myself that I got it cut out and totally finished in three days! And I was even binding another quilt during that time. It's the crisp fall air that gives me energy! I do love fall! However.............it might be a little too crisp! Temps in the 40's are little below normal and even my husband decided it was too cool in the house and he turned the heat on! 
Anyway.......back to business.........after you check out the finished tabletopper on Monday, then on Tuesday and Wednesday, I will be posting a photo tutorial so you can make one, too.  And then something is going to happen with these fabrics at the end of next week.........

 
The "Fruitful Hands" line by Jacquelynne is just plain yummy, wouldn't you agree?
Many thanks to her for sharing her fabrics. :-)
 
I am "out and about" today. Headed over to the little town of Cosmos, MN to present my "Legacy of Stitches" quilt program to the ladies at Peace Lutheran Church. My husband has loaded my quilts and other goodies in the car and there will be helpers when I arrive. I have lots of fun stuff to share and inspire. And then maybe on Sunday afternoon, I will finally sit down and share pics from my husband's retirement and some other things. Have a good weekend!
