Lucky Day

Welcome back,
 if you have been here and are checking to see if it is your lucky day, 
and if you are new and just joining the Quilt Along, welcome to my blog, enjoy looking around.

A few weeks ago when I introduced my new patterns, a couple of them were not yet quilted and bound so now that they are, I wanted to show you how they turned out.

The fabric for both of these quilts is happy-go-lucky and will be in stores in April/May.

                                   This Topsy Turvy quilt was so much fun to piece.  
                                                      You can use charm squares, 

 or this is a great way to use up some of your scrap stash. 

I put Snuggles on the back to make it extra cozy...

...and it makes the quilting show up so nicely.

LeAnn did such a fabulous job!

This Carousel Ride quilt has large 16" blocks so the piecing goes quickly.

I love the tiny green border between the large borders with the rick-rack stitching.

LeAnn repeated the rick-rack in the block as well.

This quilt uses 12 Fat Quarters. There are just a couple of bundles left on sale in my shop if you would like to use them in your Carousel Ride quilt.

The 2 winners of the Marmalade Layer Cake and charm squares are:

Katie in Pittsburgh who said

"I love your oven mitts pattern! They would be perfect gifts for my mom and sisters :)"

Chris who said:
"Hi Bonnie! I LOVE ALL of them for different reasons! I made Twirl into an adorable table runner...reminds me of snowflakes! Next on the list is Baskets of Marmalade...wanting to make it out of what else? Marmalade! Thanks! Such great fun! Blessings!"

And as I promised, we have two more winners of a fabric bundle and the pattern they named as their  favorite.
The 2 winners for these are:

Wendy - who made the first comment

"I love ALL your patterns - but if I am forced to choose - I would pick Carousel Ride as my favorite for Happy Go Lucky :)"

    I have to let you know that I finally caved and cut into my Bliss fabric (that I've had stashed for almost three years now) on Super Bowl Sunday. This past Saturday, I gave my dear friend (she and hubby are adopting their first child) from high school a quilt made from Bliss! :)

  5. Hi Bonnie!
    I just saw that I won some Marmalade! Thank you so, so much! I was headed off to bed, but probably won't sleep due to being so excited! I can't believe I won! Thank you again--not only for the fabric, but for sharing your gifts and inspiring all of us. ~ Blessings! Chris

  9. Hi Bonnie - I have just finished Topsy Turvy and had the most fun making that quilt. Since Happy Go Lucky is not available I decided to use Noteworthy by Sweetwater and it's super cute. Carousel has caught my attention now - hmmmm. :-)
