:: Blogtoberfest Day 5 - Winterkist lovefest ::

I do think this is a blogging record - 3 posts in 3 days - it's the mighty power of Blogtoberfest.

A quick post today - all about Winterkist.

I had been watching and waiting for Winterkist for months - it was on Fat Quarter Shop's 'coming soon' list for ages.

Then the email alert came, and I pounced.

This very happy fabric bonanza arrived earlier this week.  I love the colours, the designs and the super cute gnomas.

I saw Winterkist online about the same time I saw Aneela Hoey's Bloom quilt pattern, and I figured they would make an awesome match - I'm thinking a blue gnoma peeking out of the centre, rings of red, orange, pink and green, all sewn onto Madrona Road graphite haystack.  And the back? - the black and white gnomas!!

Monica is such a clever designer and she has such a great sense of humour.  I love all her projects, particularly the Ron Swanson quilt I am oh-so-slowly making.  Click across to take a look at Monica's Ron quilt, on her always-awesome blog The Happy Zombie.

Don't forget our Blogtoberfest giveaway - leave a comment on any of our October posts up until midnight, Friday 26 October (Australian EST) - to go into our random draw to win an ipad zip pouch.  

Happy Friday to you, and happy weekend! - it's going to be a hot one in Brisbane - in the early 30s all weekend.  We SO need rain!!   xoxo cat
