A little luck and an April Goal

Apparently March was a pretty lucky month for me in the quilty world! It's amazing, I had a really rough personal month in March, and this was totally a needed pick me up.

Thanks to Quilt Taffy and Riley Blake Fabrics I won this adorable charm pack of Treasure Map. It's just begging to be made into something for my little boy.

I also was super lucky to win a $50 Gift Certificate to Forth Worth Fabrics from A Quilting Life. I picked out these goodies. And look how fun  they packaged them!

Here's a better view of the fabrics (and the hot chocolate they included - yum!)

Thank you Fort Worth Fabric Studio for such gorgeous fabric!

Then I really hit the jackpot and won the QAL prize for my Mod Olives quilt at Sew Kind of Wonderful. I haven't blogged about my quilt because I wanted to get it quilted up first. But you can see the unquilted top here. The prize was a quilted table runner from Jenny herself. I have decided to make it a wallhanging (where no kids will destroy it!).

Some close ups of the amazing quilting:

Thank you so much Jenny!!

And because it's a new month, I need to set a Lovely Year of Finishes Goal! Next month is my month in We Bee With it. So I need to do some work this month to choose what I'll have everyone work on. Right now I'm thinking Ocean Waves. My goal is to make a few mock ups and decide on my pattern and color for the bee mates to make!
