Announcing the winner!! And a finished top, too.

First I want to say that I have so enjoyed all your comments and thoughts and really appreciate the new followers. You helped me get past 200 followers. I am overwhelmed. I have also enjoyed reading and joining your blogs. There are so many interesting quilters and crafters out there.

I do wish I had a prize to send to each of you but, alas, there can only be one. I used the random number generator but still haven't figured out how to post that. The winner was #30 - Linda at Living the Dream. Linda and her husband live in France. Sigh! I have emailed her and will wait for her response with her address so the fabric can be on its way to France. I told her that I had hoped to go there this summer but instead I'm sending some fabric on vacation in my place.

Quick update on the quilt. The top is finished! I'm putting it aside while I work on my dress and jacket for the wedding and also while I decide how to quilt it.

It is interesting to see how different this looks from the one that Julie at Jaybird Quilts made from her pattern. I posted it earlier but here it is now. I loved the pattern and will definitely use this one again.

I will tell you that as I read the responses, it did seem there are many out there who work best under pressure. We all have the best intentions but life can get in the way.

I hope you all have a wonderful week of quilting or doing whatever you wish. Enjoy!
