Some Sugar, Sugar & Contest!

It's been quite sometime since quilts have been showing up here on this blog, hasn't it?  One of the last quilts of my 2013 quilt journey was this one called Sugar, Sugar.  When I walked into work the other day I found it hanging front and center above all these gorgeous fabrics.  This quilt was a fun one to do.  Pulling all the fabrics was the best part.  Playing with fabric in a quilt shop, what could be better?  This one has twenty different fabrics for the inside and border blocks, an accent fabric and a solid fabric for the sashings and borders. 
 
 Let's see if I can remember which fabrics were used.  For my accent fabric I chose a navy blue gingham check from Riley Blake.  The others used are from collections from Technicolor by Emily Herrick of Michael Miller, Ashbury Heights from Doohickey Designs for Riley Blake, Cameo by Amy Butler for Rowan fabrics and Gracie Girl by Lori Holt for Riley Blake.  There are also a couple of Moda fabrics featured as well.  The solid orange is from Michael Miller.  Ramona quilted it with an all over modern twist of the Baptist Fan. 
We have kits for this fun quilt at the shop, but if your looking for just the pattern you can find it in the Fall/Autumn 2013 of the Love Quilting and Patchwork.  It was their premere issue.  I have since subscribed to this magazine and I love everything they offer in it. 

Right before Christmas I was asked by one of my sister how many quilts I had finished through the 2013 year.   I couldn't give her an answer right off, so of course I set out for the answer.  I went back and viewed every quilt.  It was fun looking back to last January, so before this month is over I want to have a little contest.  Guess how many quilts you think I have completed and let me know in your comment, make sure you leave your email so I can let you know if your the winner.  You have until Friday, January 31st to participate.  Not all of my quilts got blogged about so if you thought you could go back and snoop, well, that won't help ya out!  I have been doing a little de-stashing and ran onto the leftovers of this quilt, they could be yours, plus a little something else.  Can't wait to see the numbers!!

I think that you have done 12 quilts. That is a good round number. I think I have done 6, so I am sure you have done at least 12.

You are the best in finding matching fabric to make a quilt.
Love this pattern. I think you have made 17 quilts last year.
