I'm a winner!

You can be too....check back later today!

This week, I finally took the time to clean up and play with my blog layout. There are so many more options than there used to be! I had no idea. It was fun playing around with it. Let me know what you think (is the wood background weird?).

Anyway, I actually won a giveaway! Krista over at Spotted Stone gave away the magazine 101 Patchwork Projects & Quilts that she has 2 designs in! I love her style and all the gorgeous things she makes...she's super talented!
This magazine is loaded with so many great projects, I was very impressed!
Here are some of my favorites.

These 2 are Krista's beautiful quilts:
Modern Mountains quilt

Rolling on Through Quilt

These composition covers look so fun.
Scrappy Composition Notebook Cover

I am so drawn to this fun quilt! I really want to make this one for Jack some day!
Work Shirt Quilt

I desperately need new pillows for our couch and these caught my eye.
Mod Pillow Pair

And I also wanted to show you the progress on my Effortless Cardigan. It looks hideous right now because I decided to knit straight from the ripped out crinkly yarn but I have high hopes for it after a good blocking! So far it fits great.

Lastly, I'm still working on that free pattern for the Royal Squares Quilt...sorry it's taking me so long. :)
