I'm a Winner!

I follow Vicki Welsh at Field Trips in Fiber.  She is so talented with her hand-dyed fabrics and quilts and fused glass and....well, there is just not anything she isn't great at.  But I won a fat quarter of her fabric last week (and sorry that it took so long to post about it).

It was great walking out to the mail box and coming back in with a lovely card and this great little package inside.

I braved the single digit temperatures in order to photograph this in natural light, by the way.  It's a lovely blue/green.  I can see going a little fussy cutting in order to utilize the wonderful right corner of this piece.  Right now I am leaning toward making it into a compass rose or center medallion paired with a red (leaning toward the maroon side) or yellow (leaning toward gold side) batik.  I am going to tack it up and think about it as I want it to be a featured fabric and don't want to waste it.

Such a lovely way to start out the holiday season, don't you think?
