Red, White and Cream Weekend

First off we have a winner for the Pumpkin Promenade Pattern! Here is my faithful, random name picker...there really are names in the bottom of this Shawnee jardiniere....you just can't see them.

And the winner is Terri over at Purple and Paisley! Not only is Terri collecting lots of packages from the mailman for the Christmas Cottage Exchange, she'll be getting this one shortly! Thanks to all of you who helped me out with suggestions! There were quite a few quilt designs I had never heard of which could work out well for those Honeycomb Harvest Fat Quarters!
Here is a sampling of some of the red and whites (along with some creams that aren't in the photo) that I will be working with this weekend for my Winter Wonderland quilt. I "raided" my local quilt shop yesterday for some more fabrics to add to what I already had. I'll post blocks as I go. The names of the blocks I will be making are Star of Hope, Cut the Corners, Double X, Maple Star, Martha Washington Star and Pinwheel.
Tomorrow we are supposed to have another beautiful fall day. My husband and I may try to go fly fishing again since this is the last weekend of the season....there is a chance that it could be a stellar day! I hope you all have one as well!

Cheers,
Candace

Yayyy Terri. I love the red and white. I'm working on a red and white quilt myself. Though it is for summer.
