That winner, winner, chicken dinner thing... never get tired of saying it. You, however, might be tired of hearing it from me because I am pretty sure that is the title of any post I have ever done with a giveaway winner in it. LOL!! Well, at least I am consistent.
Anyhow.... thanks for your patience. At our house, it is still Tuesday at the moment. So technically I am still okay to post even though I know that for many of you, it will be Wednesday before you get a chance to check back, so sorry for the delay. A couple of deadlines hit the studio today and the post had to take a back seat.
Thanks for playing everyone and remember that we still have more winners in the days to come so check back tomorrow and the next day and the next!!

Jacque, give us a "ring" and we'll get your goodie bag out to you!
For the many of you who have emailed or commented on the vintage quilt I showed, I am with you on the space feeling theme of the pattern! It is apparently not a rocket related pattern at all nor a nuclear bomb shelter symbol either! Instead it is a variation on a pattern called CHIPS & WHETSTONES but I haven't been able to discover the origin of the name.
The quilt that I found was most likely made in the late 1800's due to the fabrics but I can't swear to it since I haven't had it officially looked at by anyone with enough credentials to tell me for sure!

Here is another vintage lovely from the same flea market day. It was obviously an amazing day for quilts!
... look at all those wonderful colors!
ON THE WORK FRONT
We have a new cream bundle [Cream Bundle #6] available. These have been super popular around here so check it out while they're still here.
Talk to you tomorrow. Although it might be late at night again. That's just the way we roll around here in September.
