Saturdays are our Sponsor days..RECAP of our 7th week together ....6 more weeks to go..



Once upon a time this lady , oh let's call her Madame, thought it would be a great idea to invite some wonderful guest bloggers to post on this blog. She thought wouldn't it be nice to have some Sponsors too - for some giveaways . Sh also thought why not invite some WANTOBE  Quilters to the mix and show them how much fun you can have cutting up material and sewing them back together again......YEP that is what she thought in her fairly creative mind... And the story went like this...at least in her 7th  week of memorable moments...
She noted there are 6 more weeks to go...and her room where all the giveaways are stored  doesn't seem to be 
diminishing quite quick  enough.. she .may have to give a whole lot more goodies away...a whole lot more...

The week began like this...




On Monday our guest 
was Mark and he showed us how to 
do a flower arrangement with fabric...
pretty impressive it was..


Our Giveaway was for  Wantobes
and HEATHER won this collection



Ty Penningtons's Fabric collection called Water Flower

I thought choosing Ty Penningtons collection called
Water Flower would be a great choice to make Mark's Calypso
flower arrangement.  Free Spirit Fabrics 
sent along Ty's complete collection of these 3  lines..

 Gray, Chartruese, and Ice..
The winner will get 9 - 1/2 yard
bundles of this collection...
