Turning Twenty Inspiration Quilts, originally uploaded by Kellie C..

I am sew sew sew excited to be “Turning Twenty”…that is taking part in the “Turning Twenty” virtual quilting class via Alewives Fabrics!  Rhea’s “AlewivesGirl” blog announced the class “open” on Friday and it was full the following day. But not to worry, you can still try to win a “seat” in the class here or word has it that one spot in the class and a Turning Twenty Kit will be given away on SouleMama this weekend!  It also looks as though they will offer the virtual class again and they have the pattern for sale here.   It doesn’t start until April, but that leaves plenty of time for the best part of quilting…choosing the fabric!

I love a few of their Turning Twenty kits available for sale here in their online shop. Have my eye on the “Gypsy Chic” (of course it’s out-of-stock because it is my favorite!), “Hope Valley”, and “Wild Thyme”.  I love love love the “Johanna’s Garnet”, but D. thinks it has too much pink…I am making it for our bedroom…why can’t he be one of those guys that don’t care what color is in his room?  I bet Mr. Darcy would have let Elizabeth Bennet put it in their room, humph! (Best stop reading so much Jane Austen, ha ha)

Happy quilting,

    I would so love to win a spot! I agree with you on all your choices but I think Johanna’s Garnet will match best in your room (if I remember the colors correctly). Tell D. those aren’t pinks, they’re purples! Also love the Wild Thyme. Good luck in your decision!
