What a busy week with lots of giveaway fun!! Thank you to everyone who left wonderful comments on the Cultural Fusion Quilts book and the SewMamaSew Giveaway Day posts. I loved reading your thoughts about the book and hearing about your favourite fruits. There were even fruits I'd never heard of like clementines, and honey crunch apples, I hope I get to try them one day.

A big welcome to all those that signed up to follow my blog. I'd love to return the favour and visit your blog too, so leave me a comment so I know where to find you. 

I'll announce the winners in a moment but first I'll share the blocks I couldn't resist making as soon as I'd read Cultural Fusion Quilts. The quilt pattern is called Rocky Road to Kansas. 

The blocks were a great opportunity for lots of free cutting and piecing gentle curves. I had a great time playing with bright contrasting colours. And fabrics too, there's a bit of old pyjama pants in the mix, some older fabrics and some new ones.  

I really like the quirky diamonds created by the adjoining crosses.

My trusty sidekick on the Rocky Road to Kansas adventure was Betty Bernina. It's not often I get her out from under the bed but when I do I love how true her stitches are and the steady purring noise of her motor. Pretty good for a $10.00 find at a garage sale. I've been thinking I should call my quilt Afternoon with Betty.

I haven't decided whether I should add borders yet. I'll have a look through my stash to see if the right fabrics jump out at me. 

Okay, I'll stop keeping you in suspence and announce the winners of my recent giveaways.
The Random.org thing did the choosing.
