And the Loralie panel WINNER is . . .

The winner of my Loralie panel is Anya! Click on my profile for my email address, and email me your mailing address - and I'll drop it in the mail tomorrow morning. Enjoy! Thank you to the 30 lovely ladies who left comments on my blog. It was fun to read about your latest projects.

Yesterday was a long day, full of fun "social" events instead of work. It started with attending Saturday Sampler then going to coffee with several quilting friends - where we celebrated Tina's birthday. These are my sampler blocks for this month. The pink and brown is the actual sampler block, and the green one is a bonus block. That is an option each month - to bring a bonus block and have a chance to win them all.

Then I met my oldest daughter for lunch in Sioux Falls, went with her for the final wedding dress fitting, and stopped at one dress shop to look for a dress for me. She looked beautiful in her dress. As for me - I did try on 3 dresses, but didn't like any of them.

Next stop was to pick up my other daughter (the December newlywed) and we attended a bridal shower for her sister hosted by her friends. I had the shower guests all sign a quilt block for her (see below). Then all of the girls went out for an evening of fun, including a limo and a comedy club. Hope someone took pictures of the bride-to-be in her green boa with flashing lights and a crown!
Flip flops - the perfect block choice for a destination wedding on the beach, right? The block is the same flip flop block that I've made before. I have a wall hanging made of 4 of them in my beach-themed bathroom. And I used the same pattern to make a summer swap quilt. I'll also bring a couple of blocks to the wedding for guests to sign.

It was a fun day, but I was definitely wore out when I got home last night.


  1. I love the star blocks and the flip cute.
