I Need a Vacation Winners

There was a bit of a delay in the normal announcement of the Project QUILTING Winners for the “I Need a Vacation” Challenge.  I have a good reason … my family and I went on a vacation.


Yup – we packed our bags and headed to Disney World for a week!  It was a crazy busy vacation with lots of amazing experiences, fun, and of course a bit of drama (we took our three girls).  It was so nice to step away from reality though even if it was just for a little while.

But now – it’s time to get back at it … let’s see who won!

The Viewer’s Choice goes to …


Janet H and her quilt “Unexpected Treasures in Unexpected Places.” Congrats Janet!  Keep an eye on your mailbox for some fabulous Aurifil  Thread and Project QUILTING buttons!

Now let’s take a look at who won the random prizes.  This week Pip was the lucky name drawer as the two big girls were at school.

Prize 1


And the lucky winner of a mini thread box from Aurifil is …


Carla of Creatin in the Sticks!

Prize 2


The Fat Quarter Shop

A lucky winner is going to be getting a fat quarter bundle of fabric from The Fat Quarter Shop! 

Congrats to …


Charlene of Waggons West!!!

Prize 3

Marcia's Crafty Sewing & Quilting

“Quilting Gift Certificate” for $30.00 off the Quilting on a Baby size quilt or larger. (Baby, Lap, Twin. Full, Queen, or King) from Marcia’s Crafty Sewing & Quilting.

The Gift Certificate will be good for 4 months starting one month after the challenge ends.  Excluding the Month of December for using the gift certificate.  The quilting gift certificate is transferable to another person, so you can share it with a friend, if you’d like.

Marcia will do an estimate based on the size of the winner's quilt top, quilting choices, thread choices, and batting and if they would like to purchase backing fabric from me. Winner can send backing fabric and batting with their quilt top, but I do have it available. This way the winner will have a good estimate of the value of your quilting prize.


Pip chose Quilts by Lisa for this fabulous prize!!!

Prize 4

Marcia would also like to giveaway to a separate winner a prize of one of her original patterns(value $8.00).
