Winners and my challenge...

Good Monday morning! Thank you all for your wonderful comments and I'd love to see your Sanctuary Squares quilts if you make one. Did you see it over at Modern Day Quilts yesterday?

The winners were randomly selected and are Moewest, Jenniffer and Kristy. I've sent you all an email. Congrats!!

We had our mug rug exchange at the STLMQG meeting on Saturday. I got this awesome one made by Candy. I love it and I doubt if she knows what a big tea drinker I am.
Much progress has been made on my solids only challenge for STLMQG. It started with this...

And ended up with this...
And this...
It's certainly a modern stretch for me and I'm pretty pleased. My husband even noticed it and commented how much he liked it. Believe me ~ he doesn't notice too much in the way of quilting around here.
Over the weekend I completed the quilting...
And I'm finishing up the binding...
Another little project this weekend was these book bags for the girls using the tutorial from Sew, Mama, Sew. It's Hello Kitty fabric purchased from Fabric Worm.
I was really careful not to disfigure any kitties in the making of these bags. You may remember my decapitation of Elmo in a pillow case seam that caused quite a stir!
I recently got 2 quilts back from my longarm quilter. A little more binding and I'll have those to show this week. Have a great week!!
