Good Stuff Tuesday

I love giveaways ~ especially when I win one!  I was one of ten lucky people to win SewCanShe's giveaway of Inspired LED's Sewing Machine LED Lighting Kit ~ I've been drooling over this since I saw it months ago.  A HUGE thank you to Caroline at SewCanShe and Inspired LED!
So I guess this just means that I'll have to do more night-time sewing ~ awww, what a shame.  ;)

I finally broke down and washed three of my latest quilts yesterday ~ and I know what everyone means when they talk about "crinkly goodness"!

I especially love the difference in Good Night Irene between the freshly-made ~

and the freshly-washed quilt.

Speaking of Good Night Irene ~ I experimented with a quilt label that I did on my printer and stitched on with cotton embroidery thread.  I still have four quilts that I haven't labeled.  What do you think?

Linking up with Sew Cute Tuesday.


  1. congratulations on the win. I love the look of washed quilts. For some reason they seem more snuggly. THe label is great. I've never tried printing one, I normally hand write them xx

  2. Irene is definitely better freshly washed and dried...I love a crinkly quilt! I love your quilt label too. :0)

  3. I like to say it ain't a kwilt til it crinkles! Luv your labels.

  4. Washing is the finishing touch that makes it look like a useable quilt. Label is very pretty.

  5. Congrats! I've been wanting one of these lights for awhile also. Love the Good Night Irene, great fabrics, bright and happy!


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
