Winners and NTT!

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  The fact that I have an obsession with quilting comes as no surprise to you I'm sure, but this week, the depth of my neurosis has been pretty glaring.  After the past several weeks of secret sewing, my rational side really wanted to make a quilt that I could share with you, but my irrational heart couldn't seem to get another secret quilt out of my mind;  I even dreamed about it!  At that point, I gave up and decided to plunge into making one last secret quilt.

When I submitted my book proposal to my publisher, I actually designed several more quilts than I needed, knowing that I would have to cut some designs.  The quilt I'm working on now is the last quilt that was cut from the book, and even though I don't have room for it, I really wanted to go ahead and make it.  I still am not able to share it, because it gives too much of a peek at the book's premise.

Suffice it to say that I would love to have a better explanation for you as to why you can't see what I'm working on once again.  Alas, the truth is the truth, and I'm sure there are more than a few of you out there whose hearts overrule your head from time to time.

So, without further ado, I owe you four (yes, FOUR!) winners from last week's 2017 kickoff sponsor post.

The winner of the Early Bird Fat Quarter bundle from the Fat Quarter Shop is comment number 74, Barb Neiwert!

The winner of the $25 gift certificate to LouLou's Fabric Shop is Ann, comment number 182!

The winner of the Love Is In the Air fat quarter bundle, sponsored by Fort Worth Fabric Studio is comment number 72, Kathy!

And lastly, the winner of the $25 gift certificate to Lady Belle Fabric Shop is Audrey, comment number 149!

Congratulations to all of you!  I'll be contacting you shortly via email so you can get your prizes!  Now, let's check out the amazing features from last week's party!  This oh, so amazing quilt top is by Maryse Makes Things-

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. Congrats to the winners. All prizes are very nice :)

  2. Oooh secrets are fun! Especially when we know they won't be secrets forever :) Marysa's quilt is stunning isn't it, it's been a joy to see it evolve over the year and really deserves your showcase here.

  3. I love your blog and quilts and cannot wait to see your book. You especially have such a way with color/fabric choice. I have just recently started blogging but have been quilting for years and I always,find great inspiration on your bolg!

  4. I know exactly what you mean about that quilt that just won't leave your head alone!! This is an addiction after all, and we all just have to accept it ;)

  5. Wow - thanking that Random Generator for drawing my number - awesome! I'll bet it is so difficult to be keeping all these 'secrets', because we do know how much you like to share. Can't wait for the big reveal!

  6. So, you will let us know when you can show your secret quilts, right? In a year or so? At least you are sewing even if it isn't being shown now. I'm looking forward to seeing what you are working on.

  7. I totally can relate to 'dreaming' about a quilt idea! Sometimes you gotta just go with it!

  8. Hi Kelly! You know that we are all waiting so excited to see your book filled with new quilts! Wow, it is so fantastic! I never mind waking up at night because there is always something to think: quilts and plans! Good luck with your busy schedule! x Teje

  9. Looking forward to when you can share your secret sewing. Congrats to all the winners.
