Pretty Finishes and Lovely Wins

I thought I would visit my blog today since I've ignored it shamefully. 
I have finished both the blue Santa table cover and the sleigh runner.  I kept the quilting very simple, just stitching in the ditch or outlining stitches.  Sometimes I like the puffiness of a quilt when the quilting isn't overdone, and sometimes I just don't want to FMQ. 

One sleigh has a white heart and the other a red heart. 
I used the patchwork fabric for the backing, but of course the stitches aren't in the ditch there.  I won this fabric last year.

The table cover has a striped back.

During Moda Fabrics Designers Blog Hop last month I won a fabric bundle from French General.  I love Kaari Marie's sense of color and design. 
The bag contains scraps.  I'll definitely enjoy using them.  Thank you, French General.

I understand Moda is having another blog hop in December or soon after.

I also won a fabric bundle during the Henry Glass Designer Blog Hop.  Jacquelynne of The Noble Wife picked my name to win her prize. 
The fabric has a Christmas theme, and that makes me very happy.  Two patterns were included. 
Before winning I was a follower of The Noble Wife blog because it is like entering a fairy tale.  The images on the fabric give you an idea of her artistic style.  Gentle and pretty.  Thank you, Jacquelynne.

On the 28th of November, SewCalGal's Christmas Quilt Show begins.  Viewing all of the entries will be fun and inspiring.

God Bless You.

I love the runner with the sleighs.

You've done well with your wins - perhaps you should be buying lottery tickets too?

Well you have been busy! Those are two lovely finishes, Joanna, and what wonderful wins!

Would you mind putting up a link for the Noble Wife blog? I think I can't see for looking, but I can't seem to find it on your side bar.

Oh! I mean't to say what a beautiful pic of Moxie - she looks very snug and happy!
