Look what I won!

I was so thrilled to receive an email to let me know I'd won a Fall into Fall giveaway held by Violette.  I've won a jelly roll of Kona Cottons, delicious!  I've always wanted to make a quilt with bright solids with a black a background.  Now I have to decide which pattern.

I've nearly reached the end of my little pile (64) orange peel applique.   I've really enjoyed stitching these and I'm looking forward to putting the quilt together.  I included a  photo of  a couple of hexagon flowers that are bound for my Roebuck quilt.  

The final photo is of part of a quilt top (Figtree Quilts Jelly Rose) I'm ready to put on the frame to machine quilt.  I've been procrastinating about the quilting design but I have decided, finally, to do a meander in the background of the blocks and a feather border and play the rest by ear.  Whether this changes when I get it on the frame remains to be seen but at least it's getting closer to being completed! Sorry the picture is sideways.

Now I'm off to watch The Wizard of Oz and finish a few more orange peels, perfect Saturday night!
Bye for now,
