River Twist Quilt ~ Winners

Happy New Years Eve y'all!  What a blessing 2012 has been. While I have many ponderings in my heart about what the past and future; what I might do, how I might do it... quilting, working, sewing, blogging... growing my faith and more... I will hold onto them for awhile, as I continue to praise God for ALL of YOU, and for all the blessings that have been poured down on me and our family. 

For now, I will show you more results of my 'misfit blocks' and so far... I am still motivated!  Ha!  2013... here we come!
I named this quilt by the name of the yarn I used to couch the flowers onto {the KISS} blocks.  It's "River Twist" by one of my favorite companies, Mountain Colors of Montana.
Of course, I felt the need to add something more, so I did that with some Bobbin Play, using Red Razzle Thread.

I like the warmth of these blocks, and they are something a little different from the other sets I've put together... it was a bit of a challenge to figure out how to bring a bit of 'new life' to them, but I'm satisfied with how this turned out too. 
I also found my free motion quilting to be in need of a tune-up!  Bring it... on!
So... question for y'all... should I leave the centers plain, or put a button... or something on it?  I am undecided...
So it's time to announce winners!  Yay!  Courtesy of my sweet husband, he gave me the numbers #5 and #9!

That would be: Yvonne {for the patterns} and Happy Cottage Quilter {the magazine!} She has lots of time... poor girl broke her wrist ~ badly.  So here's to some sweet healing time.... and reading time, Jocelyn. 

Happy New Year Eve's everyone.  I know I am blessed, and I hope and pray, I am passing it on, continually.

May you have a lovely celebration~ and always,

Yeah, I would put something over where the cords all meet in the middle - and looking forward to what that will be! Know it will be a pleasant surprise! Happy New Year, Leslie!

I love the colors. I'm so scared to try freehand quilting. I know I'll mess up something I worked hard on.

Happy new Year!

Gill said...

I'd leave them plain Leslie!
Happy New Year!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Oh thank you Leslie. I do have lots of time for reading and dreaming.

Yvonne said...

Thanks so much Les for the patterns. Now for a question, did you lay the cording down and then sew it to the quilt blocks? That is really cool looking. I love your work!

Thanks again
Yvonne Layton :)

I love what you did with them! I kinda like them just the way they are. So pretty. So blessed to have come to know you this year, Leslie. You are a bright, wonderful light. Thank you for your friendship. Happy New Year! xo

Отличная работа!!! Очень нравится! Пока только мечтаю научиться шить такие вещи как у Вас!

I am leaning towards leaving them the way they are. The cording adds so much and draws the eye to it that maybe adding a button would draw the eye towards the buttons instead. What ever you do will be lovely though.
