Can't believe I won!

I'm currently following the Splendid Sampler sew along by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson.

Although I'm a little behind since I have not made all the past blocks already I enjoy the journey and all it has been teaching me :)

Since we just surpassed the 50th block, during the week of turning over the half of this amazing project there was a celebration with a lot of giveaways.

Well I actually WON something! I cannot believe it!
I won the PERFECT BOX OF COLORS by Pat Sloan of AURIFIL THREAD! How sweet! Each spool contains 1300 mt and there are 12 spools inside!!! I'm so thrilled and grateful!

Meantime allow me to show some of my latest blocks of the Splendid Sampler! I'm doing mine Scrappy but I also making a Sewing themed version of some blocks for a wall hanging for my sewing corner and a Christmas version of some other blocks (so basically I should end with three quilts of different sizes :D )

Wish you a happy day of sewing!

The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild started the Quilt for Pulse initiative to make quilts for the families that lost their loved ones and for the injured and than, as quilts would be distribuited, to the people who helped  and to the LGBT community.
When there is so much hate and sorrow I would always want to do something. To give at least something to the people that were hurt. Finally I could. I made this quilt top (there was the choice to make blocks, quilt tops or complete quilts) using white on white fabric and the brightest colors of the rainbow I could find.
This is also my first try at doing something  "modern". I used polka dots, Cotton+Steel fabric, polka dots …
