Winners - Week 4 and Lots More Fun!

Greetings fellow quilters!  I'm excited to announce the Week 4 Winners in "A Month of Monday Giveaways".  Week 4 was sponsored by Sew It Is quilt shop and Aurifil thread.  Many thanks to both of these sponsors for their generosity.
Before I announce our winners...

My heart, prayers, and thoughts go out to the families that have been effected by the terrible storms in the Central and Eastern United States.  May these families find strength to pick up and move on even though they have suffered loss of lives, pets, and homes.  Thank you, dear readers, for keeping these families in your thoughts and prayers as well.


Winner Selection:  If you recall in last weeks post, I asked you to help me with these choices: 

Because there were more than 400 comments on the Week 4 Giveaway, I decided to tally up the first 200 comments and, after doing so, it was very apparent that the majority of you wanted to go with Option 3 above -- choose 5 winners!  
Week 4 Giveaway Tally - Choice 1, 2 or 3
Your wish is my command...

5 lucky readers will each win 2 spools of Aurifil Thread and one Mini Charm pack. 

I used Mr. Random Number Generator to choose the winners (to be honest I was very surprised at the grouping of these "random" numbers -- but I went with my first 5 clicks using the tool.)

Without further ado, the 5 winners in Week 4 of "A Month of Monday Giveaways" are:

Winner 1:

Winner 2:

Winner 3:

Winner 4:

Winner 5:

Ladies, Congratulations !!  Please email your mailing information to: karen dot keuka at gmail dot com and I will get your fabric and thread spools out right away!!

Thanks again to Sew It Is and Aurifil for their generosity!

One final note:  I personally couldn't be more thankful for such wonderful and supportive followers. 

The comments and feedback on both the "Bouquet Memories" Wall Hanging Tutorial AND
the "Spring Basket" Pattern Review are heartwarming. 

I do apologize that I cannot respond to each and every one of you - please know that I appreciate your kind feedback. 

I'm still very excited about Week 5 in "A Month of Monday Giveaways".  Bear Creek Quilting Company is giving away a Bouquet Memories Wall Hanging Kit -- including all of the Hoffman fabric you need to make the sample AND 3 large spools of matching Aurifil thread !!   A Fantastic giveaway -- thank you Shari.  Click here to get involved.

Also, if you haven't checked it out, Carrie from "A Passion for Applique" stitched up a stunning rendition of Spring Basket, wrote a detailed review, and is hosting a giveaway of two Spring Basket patterns.  Click here to see my post and follow the link to Carrie's blog to get involved in the giveaway!    Thank you Carrie - I'm still swooning over your work!

Good night all - stay safe.
