Winner - Week 3 and some Quilting the Garden Fun!

Week 3 in a Month of Monday Giveaways sponsored by Quilters Corner in Ithaca, NY has come to an end.  I want to thank each and every one of you for your support and kind comments on my blog and the Redbird Quilt Co Facebook page.   I'm really looking forward to teaching and sharing the fun of wool applique with others.
If you live locally and would like to sign up for either the "Spring Basket" or "Family Tree" class consider signing up with a friend by May 7th and you'll receive 20% off the class fee!  That's a $9.00 savings.
Be sure to review the Quilters Corner Newsletter for more information.  Click here for class details for "Spring Basket" and here for details for "Family Tree Pillow".  I look forward to seeing you there!!

If you don't live locally, the "Spring Basket" pattern can be found in my Craftsy store by clicking here... and Family Tree is a free download from the Moda Bake Shop -- click here to view the recipe.

Just a couple of quick shares before we announce the Week 3 Winner --  last week I met with my good friend and mentor Debbie, and my sister and mentor, Janet, to continue work on our "Quilting the Garden" by Blackbird Designs BOM.

Debbie made this beautiful quilt a few years ago and a few of us convinced Debbie to share her experience and input with us monthly as we make our own version of Quilting the Garden.

Here are a few shots of our last get together (we missed our friend Bonnie during this session - but I guess a retreat in Texas was just a little more fun than meeting with us girls... ; ))

Janet and Debbie looking at next month's block on Debbie's finished quilt:
The next few shots are blocks that my wonderfully talented sister has completed -- WOW !!

The house block - Isn't it beautiful (I apologize if the color is off -- darn computers ;)
Spring!!  Did I mention that my sister Janet is the only one that is on target with her blocks?  She is amazing!!
 And here are a few other details in some of her beautiful blocks !!
 Love this birds nest!!  Woot!
Thank you Debbie and Janet for letting me share our fun with others... hugs..

OK -- now the moment we've all been waiting for... there were 99 comments on last week's blog giveaway so Mr. RANDOM number generator choose as follows:
