I'm a Lucky One

A few weeks ago, I was the lucky winner in a fabric giveaway from designer Valori Wells. She has a new line of fabric called Urban Flannels and was giving away bundles to lucky readers of her blog.

Valori and her mom, Jean Wells, are well-known in the quilting community. They run the Stitchin' Post in Sisters, Oregon, where the famous Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show is held every July.

I received 7 fat quarters of cute fabric tied up in a lovely bow and can't wait to make something out of them, but I'm not sure what yet. I don't want to waste any of the pretty fabric, so I started with a thank you postcard for Valori using the selvages from the fat quarters.

I bet the postcard is cute with the salvage edges. I have seen so many pictures of quilts made lately with the edges like that.

What beautiful fabric and what a thoughtful thank you card.

You do such beautiful work.

Very very pretty, it'll look so delicate no matter what you do with it.

Congratulations on that great win!
What a great idea to make the thank you card from the selvages.
