And the winner is...

I bid on a silent auction item at the local St. Vincent de Paul thrift store, and found out today my $70 bid won!

The item included all 12 months of the BOM, as well as over 8 yards of backing fabric - and it's all Michael Miller fabric.  Very excited!  I looked at some photos of the finished quilt online, and it looks really nice. 

When I was at St. Vinnie's today, there was another complete quilt kit in the next silent auction -- of course I bid on it!

This month's Grandmother's Choice blocks are all done:

I used a paper piecing pattern for the coffee cup block - a 4" block, and then increased it by 200%.  Seemed a lot simpler - and I'm all about simple!

I'm getting over pneumonia - - made it through the whole day at work today.  I'm exhausted, and weak as a kitten - but glad to be back at it.


  1. Congratulations on your win! Hope you will be better soon.

  2. You will have that whipped up in no time at all. Hope you are feeling better.x

  3. I've never heard of silent auctions at St V's but it's an interesting concept and a great result for you!
