New beginnings and a winner!

We got off to a great start last Thurs. night when the new quilters started sewing their new fabrics in to blocks! That's exciting anytime you have new fabric, but especially so when it's your first quilt.
They are definitely going to be pretty quilts! I can't wait until this week to see how many they got made...yes, they had homework!
Marta took the Modern Cathedral Windows class last month and brought this show and tell on Sat. to show me her new windows. She sized it down a bit, sewed the main parts together by machine and is going to handsew the windows down. Pretty.....
 Notice how she fussy cut the flowers in the centers of one and made a design using darker fabrics in the center of the other.

Rafflecopter chose the winner of the $25 GC to Fat Quarter Shop this morning \ /  \ /  \ / drumroll, please.... Maryellen McAuliffe will be making something very pretty soon with her new purchases at Fat Quarter Shop! Thanks to FQS for sponsoring this giveaway, and Maryellen, please stop back and share what you got!

I can still remember the excitement of my first quilt. Lovely use of the windows with the fussy cutting.
