Giveaway results...and another giveaway!

FIRST OF ALL: Happy Easter! I will be hard at work at the hospital that day, so this is my chance to wish a happy holiday for everyone.


Drum roll please! The random book drawing has been done...and congratulations to Anne Heidi at http://www.lappemor.blogspot.com. This was so much fun...thank you so much to everyone who commented! It is so much fun to connect with bloggers who may not have time to comment each time. I loved it! In fact...this post is my 150th post. So...I am having another giveaway! Below is that pretty honeybun I showed last time, a pre-cut yummy roll of strips from Moda. I hope you like it enough to comment, or be a follower, or connect somehow. Drawing for the honeybun is on April 15th.

Pretty, huh??


See that empty spool of Guterman quilting thread by the rabbit? It represents a lot, lot of work. Below is the "Kitchen sink quilt" inspired by Bonnie Hunter's quilt. The entire spool of thread is hand-quilted into this quilt.



I washed it, and it is shrunk and warm and cuddly. I am so glad to have it done!



Have a wonderful day!

Julie, your quilt is beautiful! I am a hand quilter, so I know how much work you have in this. I just finished a spool of Guterman too. JoAnn's is having a sale of 50% off all thread starting April 19, I believe. I hope to be able to stock up. LOL Congratulations to Anne. Enjoy your book. Please enter me in your honeybun giveaway. Have a good Easter. Winona

What a beautiful quilt! I love the 'kitchen sink' approach - and it certainly worked well! Lots of hand quilting but so worth it.
