My First Fabric Win

A few weeks ago I won some fabric from Kathy's blog, Kathy's Quilts. Kathy is from Canada and has a great quilting blog. Please take a moment to visit Kathy and be sure to say "Hi".  She is a very friendly quilter.

I received the fabric today.  Aren't these greens just scrumptious? And what a beautiful tulip card.

I was so excited to see word fabric. I have never used any fabric with words, but this one had the phrase "Home and Family":

How perfect  is that for my wonky house quilt?

I immediately set about using it and another piece of the green fabric for this block:
Can you see it?  Here is a close up:


It's subtle. But I love the idea of someone looking closely at this quilt and discovering those words.

Thank you, Kathy. This fabric is perfect for the quilt I am now working on!

I've met Kathy a few times and even taken a class from her. She is a live wire and so much fun.

I'm so happy you like the fabric and that it's already found a "home" in one of your blocks...you made my day!
