The Winner

Ack! I was planning to post this on Friday, but there was thunder and lightning and I had to turn the computer off. And then I've been busy with my family over the weekend... anyway here is the winner and some other sewing thoughts. :)

I had 26 comments on my giveaway post and 35 comments in the two weeks prior (excluding duplicate comments on one post and one comment I made). I had a little system for numbering the comments but I'm not going to bore you with it, just trust me ok?

The winner of a vintage sheet charm pack is...
Freda--Congratulations! Please email me with your address (or give me your email address in the comments), Freda, so I can send you the charm pack!

I had a couple other things--here are more quilt blocks for the KCMQG charity project.
pink and green blocks
pink and green blocks 5 and 6
We needed some lighter pink and green blocks as well as some darker/brighter ones.
Just a little status update on the project--not sure if I've explained what's going on for this project here yet. I have in my possession 10 finished baby quilts and 8 quilt tops that need to be quilted. There are at least 7 other quilts being made by guild members which means we will have a total of 25 baby quilts. They will be given to NICU families at the hospital where my daughter was born prematurely almost 2 years ago. The goal date for these is next month--I'd like to deliver them around Lauren's birthday. We have people lined up and waiting to quilt and bind the remaining quilts and I'm pretty sure we'll be done on time! I am so thankful for all the wonderful quilters in the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild who have helped make this possible! I hope these quilts will give some comfort to families dealing with the challenges that can come from having an infant in the NICU.

Also--Amy over at is gearing up for a special Amy Butler Sew-n-Tell Challenge on September 24.

In a nutshell, you have until September 24 to finish a current project using Amy Butler fabrics or patterns, and the Sew-n-Tell link-up that day will be only for these Amy Butler projects. There will be prizes, too! Click here for more information. I have a kind of old UFO with some Amy Butler fabric in it, maybe I'll get it done in time for the challenge!

Congratulations to the winner! How exciting to be able to wait for the mailman to bring more than bills! Love your quilt blocks and the fact that they are for such a worthy cause. ~karen
