Sending the Babies Out Into the World

This is my newest finish.  I'm so excited ~ today I boxed her up and shipped her off to be photographed. I'm a little apprehensive too, It's always hard to trust the Post Office and send my babies out into the world.

I can only give you a little sneak peek right now.  She's being photographed to make her debut in Quilt Magazine, I think the August/September issue.  Don't you just love these fabrics?  It's Anneke's Collection designed by Jennifer Chiaverini for Red Rooster Fabrics...due to be in quilt shops (and my web store) later this month!

Here you can see a little of the great feathery (is that a word?) machine quilting that Mary did on her for me.  I just love the all over design that she chose to do.  When my baby returns home from her big trip, she'll be my new bedroom decor ~ I can't wait :)

On another note,  in honor of National Craft Month (going on right now), I thought it was time for a little blog give away!  I'm offering this grouping of craft supplies:  Some Pat Sloan fabric scraps, little foam hearts, Paper Piece Hexagons, a metal shelf sitter that says "create",

...A hanging pocket organizer, a zippered pencil pouch, Pincushion push pins, A box of Adornments fibers, and an Adorn it pin.  Just a little grouping of fun stuff to play with :)

Leave a comment on this post for a chance in the give away.  Also, for a bonus entry, "Like" my Spring Water Designs Facebook Page (and tell me here that you did).  If we get to 150 followers on our FB page, there just might be a little bonus drawing ;)

Enjoy the day!
~ Dawn

Hi Dawn. Congratulations on being published....that's so exciting. By the way, I LOVE that cheddar quilt in the picture too. What's the story with that quilt? Is it old or new?
