Winning Love

This is to give bloggers and their giveaways a shout out and it is my way of giving additional thanks to them.

  • On November 22, 2015, I discovered via facebook that I am a winner of a Quiltmaker's 100 blocks, Volume 12 magazine. I won this via quilt designer (and blogger) of one of the blocks that made it into the magazine. The biggest perk from winning is that I was contacted by two quilters who may also be distant cousins of mine. They are the sweetest ladies and I am so glad they reached out to me. I am needing to get a hold of a copy of Dad's papers to figure out if we are indeed true cousins. Even if we are not, we are united by the love of quilting and the fact that we are descended from people who have the same last name.
  • On December 14th, 2015, I was notified by Quiltmaker (via email) that I won five original designer blocks in the latest volume of their magazine. Let me tell you, I was absolutely thrilled. I have been trying to win some of these blocks since volume 2 was released years ago!
