Drum Roll.... The Winner is...

I always feel a little disappointed when I don't win a giveaway. So I'll preface the winner's name by saying I wish I had a little quilt for each of you that entered. It's been fun getting comments from new visitors. Don't be a stranger- please continue to leave comments for me. I love to hear from ya'll!!

The winner of the Little Quilt is..... Christie

I too have made several of the quilts in the Little Quilts book. Would love to have your extra patriotic one that you made. I have read and reread the book too. I also have the Childhood Treasures book - great eye candy in there! Thanks a bunch! HUGS... and stitches

Please send me your mailing address and I'll get it posted asap.

Ruth from Country Log Cabin Quilter was in Central Oregon and she and her SIL came for a visit to my house. She took a few photos if you'd like to jump over to her blog and check it out.

We had a quick tour of my quilts then we enjoyed lunch out. We like a lot of the same style quilts and have corresponded for some time. It was really fun getting to meet her IRL!!

Saturday I volunteered again for the Oregon Quilt Project.
It was another fantastic day!! More on that later.

P.S. Linda in NC, I'd love to see your quilt tops of Cheddar Cheese & Crackers and Strawberry Fields. Feel free to send me a photo via email. (That goes for anyone that may have missed out on adding their link)

P.S.S. Sue B. There is a pattern for the flag quilt but I don't know who the maker is- sorry!


  1. Congratulations Christie! Enjoy your new little quilt!

  2. Congrats Christie -- what an amazing quilt you've won!

    How nice to be able to talk to a blog friend in person -- one of these days I hope to have this opportunity as well.

  3. Congratulations Christie! And, Lori, what fun to meet someone IRL you already feel like you know.

    I think a lot of us have/had the Little Quilts book because when it came out, there really weren't very many yet. From what I remember, it was close to the first on how to make quilts look repro. And it's still among my favorites.

  4. What fun to meet Ruth and have a visit. I'd like to meet you IRL too... I can't wait for a post about the Oregon Quilt Project!!

  5. congrats to Christie hope she loves her new little quilt made by YOU!
    what fun to meet a fellow blogger!

  6. hooray for christie! I know you'll enjoy that little beauty-
    What a nice give away, Lori

  7. Congrats Christie. I found your blog through Country log cabin quilter's blog post about you two meeting. So Hi and I am enjoying your blog.

  8. Congratulations Christie!!!! :) Lucky you!
    Oh how wonderful to meet with your blog friend!!!! I love her blouse! Will hop over and see.. XO

  9. You have some wonderful quilty projects going....yes, I like them all!! I must say that patriotic quilt display was SOMETHING ELSE wasn't it!!!
    Thanks for sharing how you sew up your HST's....I must have missed it if you shared it, I plan on sewing up a BUNCH this way!! Thanks so much girl!!

  10. I think the quilt in your photo is the one I am working on now. It is a Cheri-Saffiote pattern available through Indygo Junction. Hope that helps answer the question of who the designer is.

  11. Congratulations to Christie...sounds like your quilt is going to a loving home! I love meeting blog friends already have a connection1

  12. I just hopped over to Ruth's blog. You have some really pretty quilts. Sounds like you had a fun day.

  13. Lori, Love what you did with the two string pieced stars. And then to share one of them. Wonderful. Oh is there any way you know the size of that wall quilt of the flag haning in the hall way? I am searching for the pattern.

  14. Well I think it looks great both ways. You did a wonderful job with it. It would be great to own either one of them.

  15. Thank you, everyone!!!! And, especially to Lori! I didn't have a chance to read blogs yesterday - am watching my almost 2 year old grandson yesterday and today. Put him down for his nap and thought I would check out the blogs. I had to read yours twice to make sure I read it right - I WON!!! Am thrilled! My SIL bday is on the 4th of July so this is extra special. Thanks a bunch! HUGS... and stitches
