Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine Contest Winners!

I hope everyone enjoyed the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol 5 blog tour as much as I did.  What a tour of creativity and inspiration!  I thank all of you who took the time to comment on my blog, and as promised, I've chosen 3 winners from those comments.  They will all receive a free copy of the magazine.  They are.....

MaryJo from Goldfield, IA ~  Hi Pam! Love your block...and how you have shown it in different fabric options! The quilt using your block is stunning! I am most anxious to get the magazine and make up your do so well with directions too! Sooooooooo glad you got your block in Quiltmaker:)

Bertiequilts ~ I absolutely love your fabrics... Heart of the Prairie. I know that when I see it in the stores, I will definitely be buying some for my projects.

Kathy  ~ Can't wait to see the new fabric in my local quilt shop! I just joined a Prairie Women's Sewing Circle and love, love, love it!

Congratulations!  Please email your addresses to me, so I can get your copies to you, and you can start stitching!

I'm in the last week of market preparations.  Patterns are being printed, folded, and stuffed.  Brochures are being assembled.  Binding is being stitched and completed.    Today, I'm going to set up my booth in the basement and decide what goodies I want to take for decoration.  Then, it will be time to pack and load!  

Because of the help of my dear friends, I'm in good shape, and the stress level has been knocked down many notches!  Where would I be without my family and girlfriends?  Parish the thought!  My heartfelt thanks and undying gratitude to my family, especially my daughter Nicki, who helped starch tons of fabric, and has stuffed thousands of patterns.....and to my girlfriends Lynn M, Debbie Mc, Ronda, and Sherry..for their hours of skillful stitching help and great company!

This is an exciting time for all quilters.  Quilt Market brings the creative forces of our industry together under one roof for a mind-blowing show.  It's wonderful to see all of the new products, fabrics, and projects that will soon make their appearance at your local quilt shop.  I'm always so jazzed to be able to see all of the quilts in person ~ there's just nothing like Quilt Market. of the best parts for me is that I get to see many quilting friends again!  It's our yearly reunion.  There's always the bonus of making new friends, too!

There are so many opportunities for you to come along to Quilt Market with us by following your favorite bloggers.  I will be doing my best to post from market, so...please stay tuned, and thank you for taking a few moments to visit with me today, too!
