First, I want to thank . . . . Now why do I feel like I'm beginning an Academy Award acceptance speech? I'll try to keep it short, although I have 124 people to thank and 3 companies.
I'll start off with the 124 people--that's all of you who voted for my Easter Hop quilt in the Quilting Gallery contest last weekend, of course! Thanks!
Next? Thanks to the Quilting Gallery for arranging the contest. I wasn't really aware that they were having weekly contests until I came across the information for the Easter themed contest. You can go to their site and click around and see what quilt themes they have coming up and enter YOUR quilts when the time comes--you don't even need to have a blog. It's really simple and fun! Thanks, Quilting Gallery, for giving us a place to showcase our creations!
I really want to thank the Fat Quarter Shop for sponsoring the contest this time. There are different sponsors each week, and I was lucky enough to pick a week when the Fat Quarter Shop was generously giving the winner a jelly roll. As most of you know, the Fat Quarter Shop is a wonderful company to do business with and one of the most generous as well. Thanks!
Finally, thanks to Sweetwater for designing such wonderful fabrics. I picked a jelly roll of their Make Life line as the prize from the Fat Quarter Shop. I'm going to have to do a little shopping for some border fabric in that line and maybe a jelly roll quilt pattern. Oh, and maybe some of their cool buttons? Who knows what I might find I need? With Sweetwater products, there's certainly enough to get the creative juices flowing! Excuse me while I go get a towel and mop up.
So, anyway, thanks!
Oops! FOUR companies to thank! I'd also like to thank Moda, because if it wasn't for Moda and their precuts . . . well, it just wouldn't be the same!
