Quilty Box Drawing Time!

Hello from Puyallup, Washington!

Quilter’s Dream Retreat of Fall 2015 wrapped up this afternoon with hugs and tears all around.  It’s been a retreat to remember, and to hold in our hearts!

After all was packed and put away, my cohort and event assistant, Mary drove me out of the gates of Camp Arnold and pointed her trusty quilt-stuff filled Explorer toward Puyallup.

We spent the afternoon antiquing, touring, and dodging the late October rain that she simply refers to as liquid sunshine.

I’ve now been dropped at my hotel for the night –I’ll be heading to the airport in the morning.

But before I get completely into relax mode, we’ve got a drawing to do!

All of these goodies are headed to one lucky winner who left a comment on our giveaway post!

1435 entries – and only ONE winner!  Who’s it going to be, oh Random Number Generator?!


Entry 815!

I think the thing that makes me feel the best, besides the fact that these are items I WILL use –is the knowledge that 5% of the proceeds go to help kids in need.

  1. I cannot believe that there is no comment !! Am I the only one home from Quilters Dream Retreat with nothing else to do other then get caught up with Bonnie's blog?
    Yo & Vickie, thank you so much for all the hard work you do to keep us all safe, happy and laughing. Mary, thank you for taking care of our "quilt crush" Bonnie throughout the retreat. And most of all--------
    Thank you so much Bonnie--you bring tears to my eyes with happiness and thankfulness.

  2. Congrats to the winner!!!

  3. Congratulations to the winner, I bet you feel lucky to be choosen.
    That retreat must have been wild with so many people. I've taken classes in quilt shops but a retreat what a treat that would be.....

  4. CONGRATS, JULS! You are so lucky! Please enjoy!

    I wish I had been at the retreat with you. I love the Pullylap area!

  5. Made 2 loaves of Bonnie's Best Bodacious Banana Bread...snacked on it today. Yahoo! It is really good! Thanks for the recipe Bonnie.

  6. Score! Great things from Bonnie are always welcome!

  7. Had the best time at "Quilter Dream" retreat. Wonderful ladies, beautiful quilts, and did I mention that Bonnie Hunter was there, what a treat. A great big thank you to our wonderful hostess(s) Karen L.. Bothell, Wa

  8. Puyallup, Wahingron and liquid sunshine sure brings back some wonderful memories of living outside the gates go McChord AFB in the early 70's.

  9. I have been going to Quilters Dream for a dozen years now and can't imagine a more fun retreat! Until Bonnie showed up! Thanks for adding to the fun and laughter! And thanks for sharing your knowledge of quilting with us! I may not be as scrappy, but I do love the patterns, whether the free ones or the ones from your books! Loved having you at our retreat and glad the mountain came out for you! Thanks again to Yo and Vicki for all your hard work putting this together!

    I am so blessed! I went to bed early on Sunday night, and missed checking on the drawing. What a great way to wake up on a mean 'ol Monday morning- a message from Bonnie Hunter that said Congratulations! I am thrilled and grateful, and looking forward to my box of quilty therapy. Thank you, Bonnie, you are the best. And thank you to Quilty Box, too. Juls in FL mathrun1@yahoo.com
