Challenge Winners

How has your winter been? We had a very mild one until about 6 weeks ago when the Snow Goddess decided to take up residence in our part of New York. The only good thing about all this snow (as far as I am concerned) is that I am forced to stay home more and sew:-))

Need some ideas? Here are four sites which have TV-style quilting shows on the Internet:

The Quilt Show

Quilters TV

Simply Quilts Online:

Kaye Wood TV

Lots of great ideas there! And allow me to toot my own horn – we are starting to offer quilt patterns available by instant download. These are less expensive versions of the same pattern you buy online or in a quilt store because you have to download them and print them out. But if you need a pattern in a hurry, here it is!

If you are in Ohio, let me pass on this E-mail I received: Actors’ Summit, a nonprofit professional theater located in Hudson Ohio, is in need of quilters for their upcoming musical “Quilters”. If you are interested, visit their website at

Did you vote on the challenge quilt?  The winner was #13 made by Karen Hawes. She won a $50 gift certificate with a matching gift certificate won by Bernice Lindmark of Palatine Bridge, NY. Quilt # 1 made by Chris Vila won the $25 gift certificate. Matching door prize was won by Brita Pingry of Crossville TN.
