It's fun to be the winner!

After work this morning I took a drive to pick up the quilt I won at the local shop this past weekend.  It's throw size and will be a nice addition to the collection on the couch in our family room.  I'm not sure what the pattern is called.  It's like a rail fence but each square is just one piece of striped fabric giving it the basket weave look.   

Check out the back.  No cheap muslin backing here.  Probably if the sun would shine I could get a picture that reflects the colors better.  Who wants to wait until then? 

I've been stitching on Jenny Bean's Christmas Sampler.  Maybe in a few days I'll have some progress worth showing.

Tomorrow 2 groups of 3rd graders will come tour my court room.  At that age they're thrilled to try on hand cuffs and bang the gavel.  Here's hoping that's their last up close and personal look, though!

The Queen Bee


  1. When my kids were in elementary school, the first grade field trip was to the police station. They'd put the kids into a jail cell and somebody would always cry. In retrospect, I can't believe that the teachers never stopped that practice.

    Will you wear some earplugs? I can only imagine how my head would be ringing after hearing the gavel all morning!

  2. Wow! Lucky you, Pam! That quilt looks like it works perfectly with your red leather couch that you have it displayed on...

    I'm sure the kids will have a ball in the court room tomorrow--that kind of excitement is contagious--enjoy :)

  3. Lucky, lucky girl!! Love the quilt! Carol is right - it looks perfect on that couch!

    Can't wait to hear the tales of the 3rd grade visitors!
