hello all and happy summer sunday ~

winners!  we’ve got winners!  well, it’s about time, huh!!!  long wait, i know.   i so appreciate all the comments, and your coming alongside in seeing my projects made with vicki welsh’s hand-dyed fabrics!  she’s such a talent!  don’t you agree?  and… guess what i found in my stash?  a yard of some fabric i had ordered from vicki, well over a year ago, i believe… yippee skippee!!  i cannot wait to play with this exciting colorway.  although i didn’t see this exact combo in her shop, no doubt she could recreate it if you asked… hmmm?! 

and another fabric that is on my ‘add to stash list’ {yes, it’s kind of hard not to have one when you visit vicki’s etsy store.  this one is  cotton candy; isn’t it gorgeous?  pink and wine… reminds me of the song strawberry wine and summer days… bring ~ it ~ on! {summer…not so much on the wine ~ lol~}

and recently i took advantage of vicki’s june sale, and ordered this packet of beauties, from “thrive.”  i love that name, too.

and to finish up; here’s the last couple projects i’ve put together, although unquilted. these were made using vicki’s gradient, ‘sundance’:

you may have read about my stamping fun, in this post... and i have been happily sewing those pieces together:

and you may remember the key west gradient, from which came tropical hibiscus: {one of my all-time favorite art quilts!}

 and i began with her geranium gradient, creating the fun flower pot quilt:

today i’m showing a last bit of curvy patchwork ~ {my kind of checkerboard style} below. this piece is called “summer dance.”

on this one, i decided to add a fun fringy yarn in the binding, using my bernina #43 foot {of course}.  what do you think?

 i hope someone thinks “i like it”  ~ {i’m giving it away today}

did you remember i also said i would be giving something away from me, too? {i hope so} 

so, let’s get to it!  winner of vicki’s fabric giveaway is robin
and
winner of the summer dance runner above is:
thank you again for all your support, encouragement! you guys rock! it’s been lots of fun, and i give vicki huge thanks and a big hug, for asking me to play with her wonderful hand-dyed fabrics.  she’s just a terrific artist, and i am so blessed to know her!  i hope you’ll visit her blog, and leave her a sweet comment or two!
 have a happy happy summer!

  1. What fun for the ladies to have won! Good for them!!! Just to have a little part of Leslie is great! Love seeing pics and especially the closeups of your work!!!

  2. Congratulations to the winners! Leslie, I love your sundance piece with the swirly hearts. Is that a stencil or a thermofax screen print? It looks like possibly you used paint sticks. It's lovely.

  3. Oh yay! Not only do I like it, I LOVE it! Thank you so much, Leslie.

    (You must have known the finished piece would be so much more practical for me right now!)
