 Here I thought today would be all about announcing winners on my blog… but last night I found out I’m a winner too! My Quilter’s Bible got third place in the Texting While Sewing competition over at During Quiet Time! I am so thrilled – I thought it was awesome to make the top 10 – did not expect to get further than that!

Here’s my entry – you can read more about how/why I put it together over here:

Quilter's Bible

Here is the second place winner – Cindy from Live a Colorful Life. And we joked about taking the theme too literally – obviously we were on the right track! I seriously love this block with this conversation all out of selvages! Genius!

Texting 2nd

And the first place winner – Laurraine from Patchwork Pottery. This block is seriously amazing!! So much detail and such a clever use of text!

A  HUGE thank you to Amy from During Quiet Time for hosting this really fun competition, and also to the judges who had the tough job of picking three winners. I’m still stunned mine was one of them – thank you!!

Oh and a super bonus? Prizes include free fabric! That means I get spoilt with fabric without breaking my fabric-buying-ban! Oh yeah it’s an all around win! Winking smile

Right so enough about me, hey? Let’s move on to some other winners!

First up: winner of the Quilting Gallery Blog Hop – a Pure charm pack and a set of my Transport themed paper piecing patterns…
