Wow! When I decided to take part in the Fall into Fall Quilters Blog Giveaway, I had no idea of the number of entries I'd receive! There were over 135 submissions, although only 129 actually answered the required, "what I love about quilts" question.
I just transferred all qualifying entries into Excel, so I could number each one. Then I did a random number generator, and got the following...
So who, you may ask, is lucky number 15?
The winner is Sunny from Seam 2 B Sewing!
Here's what Sunny said she loves about quilts:
I love this book. Please enter my name in your giveaway! I love the wrinkly drapey feel of a quilt and all the beautiful designs. I have a blanket addiction anyway and quilts fit the bill nicely!
I can't argue with that! Sunny, if you'll email me your mailing address, I'll put your prize in the mail right away. Here's the Thimbleberries book she won:
I loved reading everyone's comments on what they love about quilts. For many, it brought back fond memories of mothers and grandmothers who have passed on. So let's remember that when we create and give a quilt -- or any hand-made gift, for that matter -- we're actually giving a piece of ourselves by which we'll one day be remembered.
I don't know about you, but I take comfort in that thought.
Thank you to all who entered!
Until next time...
