I had 142 comments for the three prizes. Yay, in that only the very first draw was a no-reply blogger with a dead end and no email address in her comment. 😞 but only one! All winners have been notified.
The first prize was the handmade mini, and it goes to:
Sandra C. of Quilting at the Cro's Nest
The second prize was $10 to spend at Pile o' Fabric, and it goes to:
Anita who has just and I mean just started a blog of her own, Domestic Felicity! Maybe pop on over and visit, show her some comment love. :-)
The third prize was a copy of my one and only 'for sale' pattern, Blue Skies & Sunny Days, and it goes to:
another Sandra!! Like I couldn't make this up! I was so hoping the prizes would go to someone I know, but a little voice, said, come on, that's how you get to know more peeps, Sandra, and voilà, I drew another Sandra! This Sandra blogs at The Bias Edge...Quilts and Quirks and lives in Singapore!

😎 It may have helped to see, yesterday on FaceTime, two of Preeti's Scrap Vortex quilts both in progress but both in flimsy form, to realize mine is okay too. Ah, the friends of QBL are the best.
Linking up with
Cooking Up Quilts because I am crushing on these Canadian women blocks!
Mrs. Sew and Sow because it never ceases to amaze me what beauty can come from a pile (or several) of scraps.
