Scraptastic Tuesday and April Winners

Scrappy Liberty blocks

Last night I made 4 more of these nine patches using my Liberty scraps. I have no idea how I will put these together in a quilt yet - I have been thinking of making a lap quilt to have at my cottage this summer.

By the way, I solved my issues sewing these thinner and tightly woven tana lawn fabrics by buying a set of 70/10 needles which work fine with my 50wt Aurifil thread. The thinner needles seem to glide easily through the fabrics.

Now its time to announce the winners from the April Scraptastic Tuesday link up.

Thank you again to our generous sponsors:

Here are our lucky winners, an email will come out to you later today to connect you with your prizes:
  • Massdrop - a bundle including Aurifil Mako 50-weight 1,422-yard spool of thread in Dove (2600), Natural White (2021), and Light Beige (2310) - 59 Judith from Just Jude

A big thank you to everyone who linked up to  join Nicky from Mrs. Sew and Sow and I for April's Scraptastic Tuesday Link Up. You can visit there anytime to check out everyone's projects. We hope you will join us again for the May link up, on the second Tuesday which will be Tuesday May 12, 2015.

Oh, and don't forget to check out Nicky's post from today, she has been doing some awesome quilting on yet another Siblings Together quilt.

I love those nine patches (I only use 70/10 needles for piecing) and think a summer quilt would be gorgeous! Thank you so much for my prize!
