Remember this post? Blogger's Choice Bundle Contest. Well, the most amazing thing happened...I was one of the three winners! How unbelievable is that? And I mean that literally...UN-believable! There was a lot of excellent competition and I honestly didn't think I had a snowball's chance in h-e-double-hockey-sticks. Not that I didn't want to win, of course, but I really entered for fun and to challenge myself to pick a bundle made up of fabrics from several collections. I tend to feel like I don't know what goes together and find myself hesitating when mixing fabrics. Maybe I should have a little more confidence in myself, eh?

Now, should I let this go to my head? Maybe I should head over to my LQS and start offering free fabric selection advice? When the ladies start looking at me all kooky I'll just explain that I won this contest where I pulled together a bundle of 15 fabrics and the judges liked it so much that they picked mine. Surely you should take my advice, quilty lady. Of course I know what I'm talking about! Ha ha! That would be so hilarious, especially since the gals at my LQS are mostly older lady types with extremely different tastes.
OK, so I'll just graciously accept my bundle and then roll around in it for a bit when it comes...then pet it obligingly because I don't know about you, but I just adore fresh-from-the-store fabric!
I didn't realize when I made the bundle that it's a perfect match for my Mom. Yellows and blues and greens are just so her. So that's what this bundle will become...a quilt for my awesome Mom!!
