Quilt Along Rewards

It all began when I won a gift certificate for participating in the Berry Cross Quilt Along with Jennifer at Inquiring Quilter.

The generous reward was spent at Always in Stitches on-line store, going completely toward purchasing The Quilter's Planner.  I desperately wanted one but was waiting for an excuse Christmas.  Merry Christmas to me!

Look at that sweet mini-charm pack which Always in Stitches gifted with my order!  I love mini-charms; they are like a Whitman's candy sampler of fabric.

So guess what happens when you mix a fabric addiction with a paper-products addiction.  They certainly don't cancel each other out and create a return to sanity.

Synergy is a more apt description of the result.  It grows into something which looks like this -->

which is a two-dimensional version of the giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from the original Ghostbusters movie.

Owning a Quilter's Planner grants one super powers.  Now I'm confident that I can undertake nine or more quilt-alongs, block bees, gifty swaps, and project challenges in the first three months of 2017 alone!

I am Woman Quilter; hear me roar!

Once I come down from this fabric-and-paper-blend high, I'll be posting my plans for 2017 including a recipe for eating an elephant one bite at a time.

Meanwhile, I'm partying today with:
Monday Making
Moving It Forward Monday
Main Crush Monday

Thank you for reading my blog.




  1. So funny! I felt the exact same way when my planner arrived - I can do ANYTHING! :) Amazing what a new year and blank pages can do! Thanks for linking to MCM!

  2. The true test of a planner's effectiveness is when it's full. Hope you'll achieve that goal, Kimberley!

  3. Fun post. I have a similar paper fetish. I'm still planning my 2017 goals... but soon will figure them out. Good luck with your planner and how it empowers you.

  4. So glad that the prize you won participating in my quilt along was put to such good use! Wow, you are awesome---nine or more quilt alongs, swaps and challenges? With so many things on your plate, I'm really humbled that my quilt along was something you decided to do in 2016. Thank you so much, Kimberly! Here's to a great 2017!
