Winners and Flimsy Complete

Wow! I think it's safe to say that y'all like giveaways and you like to read! I want to thank each and every one of you for chiming in and thanks to Quilting Gallery for hosting a week of fun! Lots of great gifts were offered up and hopefully fun, new bloggy friends were discovered! As for me, I now have a LOOOONG list of books to keep me busy for a really long time. I appreciate y'all sharing your insights to what you were reading as well. Y'all are a well read bunch!

So I imagine y'all just want me to hush up and spill the beans about who won.  I used Mr. random number generator and he said 220 is the winner and that just happens to be:

Either one would be great, but if I won, I would pick the clips. I have been wanting some of those for quite a while.


So the second number that was drawn was 86 and that happens to be:


Amy DeCesare said...
Right now I'm reading Killing Lincoln. It sounds upsetting or depressing, but it's really fascinating, and I'm learning so much about history.

Amy wins the fabric!

So if y'all will drop me a note and let me know where these little packages need to be sent, I will get them out to you! Congratulations and I hope y'all enjoy them!

This weekend a little birdie told me that September is National Sewing Month and a few people like Darlene, whom I always listen too, said that we had to sew every day this month. I'll try, but I'm not making any promises. We'll be shipping this month and that tends to remove me from my stitching schedule. Ppfftt. Schedule! What schedule? I'm sure shipping or not, Darlene expects me to sew. :)

However, I did manage to finish up a flimsy. I finished piecing the Gypsy quilt!



The border is on,  I pieced the back, and made the binding. Now I am in a quandry about what to chose for the quilting. This is another big quilt...surprise! It measures 100x100. For some reason I have a pretty good sized stack of blocks left over. Don't know what I was thinking when I did the math, but there will be a Gypsy sidekick one of these days.

Oh, isn't it beautiful? Your daughter is going to be so happy snuggled up under that quilt! And all those seams you pressed open--wow!!
What about using the extras to make a pillow sham or two?

Wonderful quilt.

Love the colors and how the white really makes it look so bright. Well done, again!

Gwynette in NW Arkansas said...

I know the winners will love their prizes!!! Gypsies are wanderers, so that quilt can wander over here for a while... LOL!!!! Hey, I'll stitch the binding for you as I'm listening to the Hunger Games and ready to start the next in the series.

Looks like you've been busy sewing while I've been busy entertaining... just a little less than a week and I'll be able to sew again.

Alycia said...

Love the Gypsy Quilt. I have the same problem... leftover blocks... you must just get to sewing and have a great time!!

Quilting: Something free flowing and fun....?
