This is today's finish--my reward project. After finishing the Snowman Courthouse Steps flimsy (see Jan 23's post), I decided I had earned a reward.

I have been looking at patterns on Quilt Woman.com's site for some time and this morning I ordered 5 of their downloadable patterns. Within 27 minutes of receiving my order, the patterns were in my e-mail inbox. Yes, you have to print them out on your own printer, but you don't have to pay for international shipping and you don't have to wait for weeks for the post office to deliver them to your snailmail mailbox.

This quilt pattern is called Trophy Case and was designed by Barb Sackel. The Valentine fabric featured in this wall quilt was purchased during my first visit to Fabric Depot in May 2008 when I was in Portland, OR. Since this pattern suits a print that you don't want to cut into small pieces and we are in the month of February, a Valentine project seemed in order. I was able to shop my stash for all the go-withs which made it even better. I went from ordering the pattern to finishing the flimsy within one day without leaving the house!

Boy, that went together so quickly! The blue and red in the sashing strips really set off that pretty Valentine's print! I hope you load it so you can use it this month. Woohoo for a reward project and a finish to flimsy!
