There were 32 designs in the challenge on Instagram as of 7 pm Friday night, January 13. That is fantastic!
I had www.tintup.com choose the winners and they were:
1. $15 gift certificate to The Red Hen Shop
- Leanne at Devoted Quilter
- Abigail at Cut & Alter
- Cindy at Stitchin At Home
The challenge continues until March 15 remember, so there is lots of time to hop in the pool with the rest of us. Bi-weekly prizes of $15 gift cards are ongoing and Lisa and I will add a prize too here and there.
Guess what arrived today in my mail?!
Scraps Upon Scraps : 150 Canadian Women projectMay I just say I am in LOVE with this ongoing (for a year!) project? I am in LOVE with what I am learning about my country's kick-ass, bold, and quietly brave women. Why is this not taught more in our school curriculum? Right...we learn about Louis Riel, but not about his mother or his grandmother and their contributions and brave accomplishments. That's wrong! Anyhow, thank you Next Step Quilt Design, specifically Kat, for this project.

Here are this week's three blocks:
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
