Chickadees and Berries - We have a Winner!!

Oh my goodness I was overwhelmed with the beautiful responses to the Chickadees and Berries Christmas Gift Trio post and Tutorial.    Thank you all so much!!   

There were so many entries and sweet, sweet comments I could not possibly respond to every one.  

Thanks again for your kind and encouraging words.    I hope you have a chance to pickup this lovely panel and coordinating fabric by Jackie Robinson (Animas Quilts) for Benartex.
I would LOVE to see anything you make from it.

  You can send images of completed projects to me anytime -- my email address is:  karen @ redbirdquiltco dot com.   

Before we announce the winner I want to also thank our Giveaway Sponsors.

Many thanks to Bear Creek Quilting Company for hosting the tutorial AND providing the Chickadees and Berries Fabric Kit Giveaway!!
 A  great selection of fabric and a fantastic company to work with.    
Thank You!

Again,  many thanks to the Aurifil team who also do a wonderful job of supporting the independent designers and bloggers.   You can't find a better cotton thread for your quilting needs.  
I'm always excited to add to my #Auristash and do so every time I find a great deal.  
Did you know Bear Creek Quilting Company is carrying Aurifil 50Wt Cones now?
Oh Boy!!
That is 6452 yards of thread on one Cone!!  The bigger the cone the better the deal!.   

Thank you both again.

Ok - now on to our winner -- we had 362 entries that made it in before Midnight Sunday (EST).  I used Mr. Random Generator and he choose #281.
 Congratulations Rachel!!
