Thank you, mail day, and a sneaky peek

Thank you to everyone who voted in the Blogger's Quilt Festival - I was stunned and humbled to find out yesterday that I won in the baby quilt category. Like I said before, it was so difficult to choose for each category, and it is amazing to think about all of the work that was put into the 600 or so quilts in the entire show. Thank you again for your votes! I am happy awaiting a fabric bundle... :)

Speaking of mail, I got fabric mail yesterday! It was sad to hear about Wondrous Woven Fabrics closing, but they are having a big sale to clear out inventory (though I'm not sure how much is actually left). I was able to get some really great yard and half yard cuts of fabric at an awesome price (about $5 a yard):

Top right clockwise: 2 Summer House prints, Loulouthi, unknown fall print, Impressions

Haven't used any yet this week, but I think those Summer House cuts will look especially cute in a little boy's quilt. I definitely want to get started on more baby quilts this summer, so we'll see.

Finally, I've still been working on a lot of random projects (more soon), but here's a sneaky peek of what my wedding quilt looks like right now... this baby won't be done until early next year (I'm forseeing) so this will be the last picture for a while!

Going to the beach tomorrow to celebrate my friend's 24th birthday :) I hope everyone has a restful Sunday!
