Voting Has Closed - The Something NEW Sampler: Winners


Voting for the Something NEW Sampler has closed and my first try at a QAYG quilt came in a very respectable second.


I'm thrilled with my prize donated by Cotton Blossom Farm - 10 x 1/2 yards chosen from the Simply Color Collection by Vanessa Christenson of V and Co for Moda.  I've had a great morning looking over the fabrics and finally choosing 4 graphite grey, 4 lime green and 2 spicy hot pink designs and now I'm thinking through what to make with them.  I want to say a very big thank you to Cathy at Cotton Blossom Farm and please do check out the web store, they've got some great fabrics to choose from.
Amy @thecutelife has done a smashing post detailing all the winners and you can read all about it by clicking the link below:

    1. Be careful what you wish for Gertie, it might just happen to you - what was that I said about loving the second prize!!! 10 x 1/2 yards, my that's quite a bit of fabric isn't it? Looking forward to it arriving and contemplating how to use it :)
