  1. She turned out gorgeous. I have started collecting fabrics. As I am still a fairly new quilter. Trying to create one of those stashes everyone else seems to won. It is slow go…No local fabric stores fo rme without driving a minimum of an hour in any direction. I collect a few book series. Ann Rice. Christine Feehan’s dark seriesis one of my most favorites. I am slowly trying to get some quilting acrylic ruler/ templates. Just basics for me.

  2. What beautiful work! I collect those little Mexican pottery piggy banks. The kind with no hole on the underside. They are so colorful and each has a different pattern painted on. Thank you for the wonderful give away chance!

  3. I love the colours on this one! I don’t collect anything, although I do have a small number of lizard items.

  4. I usually collect used dishes all over the house from my children:) Other than that, I collect paintings from places I visit.

  5. Your 3-d quilt is simply beautiful! I collect fabric – especially cotton fabric that other people just don’t want any more. It’s been a fun adventure!

  6. Lovely girl! I collect fabrics, have done so since I was a young girl! Don´t have to be new fabrics, I often go to secondhand stores to find nice fabrics 🙂

  7. I have collected depression glass in the Iris pattern. Now I seem to have a collection of fabric. It is much more available than the glass is.

  8. Currently, I realized I collect fabric and un-finished projects… But my favorite collection is photographs of my children right now!

  9. Oh she’s beautiful! I collect non-fiction books, but I’ve made an effort in the past year to cull my collection down to the ones I really love and re-reference.

  10. No real collections, unless you count fabric and books. That is a stunning little quilt.

  11. I have a small collection of old books (early-mid 1900’s), mainly cooking and sewing. I love the peek into the past that you get through them. Shiny baubles make me happy too! Many thanks!

  12. I usually try not to collect anything – I grew up in a family of collectors and if they ever caught wind that you had three or more of anything, you’d find yourself with another five come Christmas, so I’ve made a long term valiant effort to avoid collecting things. But… I do have several hundred books (somehow I feel it doesn’t really “count” if it’s books), and probably a couple hundred cds. And the less said about my fabric stash the better, I imagine 😀

    Anyway, this Magpie Girl is as lovely as they always are – I really like how you’ve quilted the background, that flower is really nice.
