I won, I won, I won!

This book I WON is absolutely luscious, from PatsyThompsonDesigns.com!! The colors are out of this world - even brighter than the DVDs! And I can slobber over it while I'm reading in bed, as opposed to watching her DVDs where I have to actually be somewhat upright!
I love that the pages are glossy and the print and drawings are easy to read (since I need to do the cataract thing soon!).
Am I lucky or am I lucky! I LOVE learning machine quilting from Patsy (and camera-guy Ernie)!

Since I have ALL of her DVDs, there is some duplicate material, but the photography is MORE than excellent and just demands a person sit down and try these designs. It's definitely eye candy.

This project (below)is not finished but I like to just look at it. Dh was peeking, daring me to take his photo, so I did! He almost suffered injury when I realized he still had a cigarette in his hand - yikes! I have more work, but quilters, I'm liking it! As always, I'll force myself to post it when finished.

I like it (love it)!! Better tell dear husband to steer clear of that gorgeous quilt with the ciggie! Congratulations...that book must be awesome to read just before bed, then you can dream in color!

DH looks like the 'Kilroy was Here' that I used to doodle in high school.

I saw your name on the winners list, you lucky duck! The quilt looks beautiful but I'd be worried about that cigarette!

I really like the quilting pattern you used on the quilt and yesterday I replayed the one and only Patsy Thompson DVD that I have and did a couple practice quilt sandwiches. I'm thinking about using that pattern on a twin size quilt for my GD. If I do, it will be the largest quilt that I have quilted on my DMS.
