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:

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 http://www.actorssummit.org.

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.
