What perks up a quilter with the blues? Fabric? Winning a giveaway? How about winning a fabric giveaway? I was feeling a little overwhelmed by life about a month ago, when I was notified that I had won a giveaway from Uberstitch. Although my entry was dangerously close to being eaten by an adorable little helper. I have to admit, it really lifted my spirits. Thank you so much, Kristina! I quickly received these beautiful Janean Morrison fabrics, California Dreamin':
I have been planning on using it for a baby quilt as I have two baby/toddler quilts (for girls) to make before Spring, but I already figured out that one of the expectant mothers is decorating and purchasing items in very different colors -- much more muted and lots of neutrals. So, I'll poke around and see if these would work for the other one. Or perhaps you have another idea for me. I'm open to suggestions!

With wises, true and kind -- Joan
