Hey, you thought this was a quilt blog, right? Well, it is and today's content will involve quilts and fabric.
First, I'd like to say, if you have a choice, how important it is to support small businesses in your town and when you travel. We are one of a few locally owned businesses that are generational. Your business is very important to us!
Before I announce the winner of the batiks I'd like to introduce to you a few small businesses that you may be able to support.
The first is called Little Dipper:

You all know before we can make a quilt or wall hanging, we need fabric! Little Dipper is introducing a new concept that I love.
"Little Dipper wants to democratize fabric sales and manufacturing. Fabric manufacturers have been the main drivers of what is sold in the textile industry, but “we want our customers to decide what fabrics are made, not the executives at large corporations to determine what their customers might like”, Keith Anderson, co-founder adds."
More about this unique idea:Bendabout Inn and Bendabout Too, two new vacation rentals in Bend, Oregon.
I built an addition on my home this past summer and created a wonderful place for visitors, friends and quilters to stay when visiting Bend. There are two rooms, each with their own king bed, walk-in closet and private bathroom. They share a common room that has a kitchenette and a patio with a barbeque. Both sites are available for rent on AirBnB. AirBnB.com is a website that allows home owners to share their homes with other people from all over the world.
I would love to have you stay with me for your next visit to Bend. And here is a great offer: If you book either room, Bendabout Inn or Bendabout Too, in the next 30 days you can get the room for $69 a night instead of $79 a night. You can book it to stay for any time in the next year but you must book it by Oct. 7. Feel free to share this offer with friends and family!

Now, the winner of the batiks using the random number generator is Kathy McCarty: (and my friend who has never entered one of my giveaways)
