I WON!

I have been followong the blog tour and give aways that was about Kim Brackett's new book "Scrap-basket Sensations". Yesterday Brown Quilts announced the winner of the 10.th day of the blog tour. And I was the winner of the book! I had to read it three times to belive it! I'm sooo excited! This book was on top of my wish list, but since I'm working on two of the quilts from her earlier book, "Scap-basket Surprises", I decided to wait to order it till these two quilts where finished. But now I'll get my own autographed copy! Ain't that cool?

I digged out my "Kitchen Sink" from my WISP bin the other day, and I have to admit I got inspired to do so when reading about the new book. 
Yesterday I finished piecing the last two rows on my "Kitchen Sink"!
I'm not sure what fabrics to use for borders yet, but hopefully I'll figure it out soon. Really wanna finish this top and get it ready for quilting. 
I love how it turned out so far!


I made the quilt a bit larger than the original. I will use wool batting, and been thinking about hand quilting it. But then again, it might not be finished for such a long time if I do hand quilt it...
We'll see. Got some time to figure that out :o)

I'm going to clean up my sewing room today, it looks like a mess after spending time in there the last days. I love to clean up after every project. I get more motivated when I do so, and it gets pretty dusty when I've been cutting and sewing for some days. 

Wish you all a great and creative day
Laila

Congratulations on your finish! It's really pretty. And you were smart to enlarge the pattern. I wish I had made mine a little bigger.

Congratulations on the book. You quilt looks very nice, I think you should do a simple border that isn´t too busy. I am eager to see how you decide to do it.

Wow - this quilt looks so nice - I might have to make one now as I've got that book "Scrap-Book Surprises" and haven't made anything from it yet :)
Might even have to order the new book now :)

Well done on your win Laila....and I just love your quilt...

Anne Ida said...

Gratulerer! Regner med du kommer til å kose deg med boken.

Kitchen Sink teppet ditt blir kjempelekkert! Da jeg så bildet tenkte jeg at "nå er toppen ferdig" - jeg tror jeg ville latt det være uten kant, men det avhenger selvsagt av størelsen du ønsker. Gleder meg til å se hva du velger!

Ha en fin helg!

Sara said...

Hi Laila...I have been trying to send you an email but for some reason my computer does not like your address.....We do a blog hop for OPAM, but sometimes it just makes it a bit quicker for us to get an email, but either way is good thanks........but we have picked up your finishes...thanks so much and well done...
