Whirl Win

First the Whirl:
I finished the second Whirling Star block for Wintermint.
This red almost looks solid until you're up close.
I love the flowered print.
Four blocks done so far.

And now the WIN!
I had a bit of luck a couple of weeks ago
over at Annie's Ruby Slipperz, Mystery Monday
 I won five fat quarters and got to choose my colors.
I chose red....not for Wintermint
but for the sashings and borders on my Raggedy Ann quilt.
Still trying to come up with just the right sashing pattern 
to frame the embroidered blocks.

Anyway...if you'd like to try being a winner and see a really
sweet blog, be sure to visit Annie for Mystery Mondays!

For now, TGIF and have a great weekend!

Love those Wintermint blocks! I found your blog from Sew Many Ways. I was a Math major in college and when I saw "calculating quilter" I knew I'd come to the right place. :-)
