I WON A SPIDERWEB QUILT!

So I made reference yesterday to winning the mother of all giveaways.  Take a look and tell me if you think I was exaggerating!:


Mary, who blogs over at The Momoo, hosted a giveaway and the grand prize was this beautiful quilt.  These spiderweb quilts are popping up all over the web and, as much as I love them, I didn't have any plans of undertaking a project of this scope on my own ... especially still being a paper-piecing virgin and all.  So I'm choosing to believe that it was fate that my number would be pulled to win this masterpiece!


This quilt was actually made by Mary's uber-talented daughter, Jenny blempgorf.  Every time I look at the pictures I get even more excited; first, because I keep seeing more and more of my favorite fabrics that I've never had the pleasure of working with (I'm lookin' at you, Mr. Heather Ross gnome, and those rare Flea Market Fancy prints), and also because the choice of the soft tan rather than stark white is so my style.


And check out the backing fabric.  My daughters will absolutely LOVE the horses!  This quilt will live such a happy life in our home.  Mary and Jenny, thank you both so much -- I promise that this quilt will be loved and cherished.

Please take a moment to check out Mary's blog and say "hello" for me!

    i am sure that your kiddos will be quite happy to do some eye spy-ing of their own. i'll bet that they (like my own kiddos) love to spot fabric that you have sewn with. i've never tried this paper-piecing thing either, but dang, i want one of those quilts!
