I love this bundle, especially the Moose fabric!

GranChris said...

Wonderful fabric. This has been fun. I met a lot of new people and learned about snow, ice and bears. All of you are very tough people. I think I am kind of wimpy in my old age. I headed for warmer weather in the South although we did get down to 17 F here.

quiltmom said...

I think it is such terrific fabric- it would make some fun things that reflect Canadiana.. I am sure that your winner is going to love it..
Regards from Alberta,
