A Supreme Winner!

I have had the good fortune to be one of Stephanie’s Supreme’s again! Here is Oak Park, her newest creation! I used Freebird by Momo for Moda - one of my favorite lines! This bag was a breeze to make thanks to Stephanie’s very accurate and easy instructions! She has it listed on her Etsy site as a PDF pattern this time!


This is a little closer look. Why, you ask, am I a Supreme Winner? Well, our local quilt shop celebrated it’s one year anniversary recently and decided to hold a mini quilt show! They asked for items that were made using fabrics and materials purchased at the shop. I purchased everything for Oak Park at Stash, including the button, so even though the pattern had not yet been released, Stephanie gave me her blessing to put it in the show! And wouldn’t you know - I won second place for best non-quilt item! How surprised was I! This was my first ever entry into a quilt show!
I'll leave you today with a few more quilts from Sisters. If you can stand it, there will be more pictures when we return...I have a feeling you won't mind!
Whoops...I liked this one so much that I posted it twice!

Wondering now that you're a prize winning bag maker if I'll have to stand in line to use you as a Supreme. :o) Well-deserved win. I love your fabrics. Looking forward to seeing more quilts. Love the one you posted twice and that Lone Star is gorgeous!
