Swanky and Sweet

Vanessa of V and Co. is having a fabulous giveaway: these two Moda Honey Buns from the fabric lines Swanky and Sweet. Vanessa did a really cute braided rug tutorial for the new Moda Bake Shop blog. (A really great spot for free patterns and ideas.) Vanessa is one talented girl. (Not to mention hilarious.) I've met her a couple of times because the quilt store where I work carries her patterns.

Can I just say that Sweet is my current favorite new line? I've been SO good about not buying any, but I did cave at this polka-dot. It's just too perfect for that 40's retro quilt I want to make like the one I saw in Carmel.This particular fabric disappeared at the store within days of putting the bolt on the floor. (That's why I had to snag some before it was gone!) Hopefully we'll get more.

And speaking of 'sweet' I just participated in my first FQ swap (hosted by Darci). My package arrived yesterday all the way from snowy Maine. Look at that cute ribbon too. Thank you Margaret!

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ diaryofaquilter.com. Thanks!
