Who’s a Lucky Winner??

Studio_April2014 028

It’s drawing time!

I drove home from Williamsburg, VA today ---making it in record time, not because I was in a hurry to get home ((Well, I was, sorta –))  but because it is a SUNDAY and all the antique malls on my route were closed, and what ones WERE open, didn’t open until 1pm, long after I passed that location!

I brought in my luggage, said hello to Sadie, Chloe, and Emmy Lou – and crawled off for a 3 hour nap.  I needed it!

So here we are, and it’s been an exciting couple of days – I just checked our comments on the give-away post – we had 1,633 comments as entries!  HOLY GUACAMOLE!!

While I fire up the random number generator, let me stick in here that if you didn’t win ((that’s all 1,632 of you!)) You can still order your own copy of MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders, signed by me, by visiting my book store HERE. 

You can preview all the quilts in the new book HERE.

And the Quiltmaker May/June issue will be found on a news stand near you any day now.

And our lucky winner is:

Number 828!

And number 828 is CARMELA!


Congrats, Carmela!  I’ve sent you an email for your address – soon as you get back to me these goodies will be in the mail to you!

I have to share with you all a special gift from the Colonial Piecemakers in Williamsburg, VA ---They blew me away with this presentation:

Hahahaha!!  Thanks Margaret!

And thanks to all the ladies in the Colonial Piecemakers that participated in such a memorable gift top!  I’ve even got some gifted strings to add into a border.  I plan on quilting it up and giving it a place of honor at Quilt Villa.  Thanks again, ladies!

Have a terrific evening, everyone!
