Pat Sloan has a new book that was released recently. It's called "Focus on the Center" and is a collection of 8 new patterns with a center medallion being the focal point for each quilt. There were several blog hops getting the word out about the book and I commented on Carrie's blog, La Vie en Rosie. I was the very fortunate recipient of one of the prizes Carrie was giving away. She said there would be a copy of the book, a fat quarter bundle and some other surprises.
Well, surprise doesn't come close to describing what I found in my very squishy, big box. Not only was there the book and a fat quarter bundle of French General's Rouenneries Deux, there were two layer cakes and 6 packages of charm packs! The layer cakes are Cabbages & Roses Northcote Range and 3 Sisters (swooning) Sentiments. There are 3 charm packs of Freebird by MoMo, 2 charm packs of Blackbird Designs Blueberry Crumb Cake and one of Love Letters from Laundry Basket Quilts. All are Moda designers.
Did you hear me squeal?! I can't decide what to do first so I am just going to pet the fabrics for a few days.
And I thought my birthday celebration was over! Maybe this turning 60 isn't so bad...
