Quilt Giveaway Winner

It's finally come, I've been waiting so long for this opportunity to announce the lucky winner of my Quilt Giveaway, and hopefully make someone's day. I was so touched by the number of wonderful comments many of you had left for me!

When I stopped at midnight there was a total of 424 COMMENTS!! WOW! I won't ever touch Old Red Barn Co. comments :P but this was a great number for me! THANK YOU ALL! You all really have made my week.

I was also amazed and proud of the number of people who loved my quilt.....thankfully, aside from getting my orders done, I was also busy creating the pattern for those that would be interested in purchasing it themselves and trying their hand in making a quilt out of love. You will have the opportunity to purchase the Hard Copy and have that sent to you via USPS or receive the PDF form for instant gratification! Here's a preview of the pattern:

And now, to announce the winner! I really wish I had the ability to make all those who left a comment here a quilt. I hate only picking one, but that was the rules. Although there were 424 comments, There were a couple that had duplicate comments, so those were omitted and then the tallying began. For each person that left a comment, I did visit your blog to see what you had up, either blogging about it, and or putting the pic in your sidebar. You would have earned a maximum of 4 entries. I went about it the old school way and placed your name on paper and tallied the number of entries. I tallied everyones up and came up with an actual # range to enter into, and well from 403 comments, it tallied in actuality 764 entries. Your name each had a number next to it. For example, if you were #20 in leaving a comment, and you posted about the giveaway in your blog and then added the pic, then you held comments 20-24. So this was my method used for the lucky winner is:

Congratulations Jennifer ms. Knitting mom of 3, please contact me either by email so I can get your color-scheme and have an early Present out to you!
I'm sorry I couldn't pick everyone, but have no fear!---There is another quilt giveaway coming soon! If you scroll down and read my previous post you will see the picture of the quilt I will be giving away--- It was really hard for me to say only 1 person won, so that quilt-top will be split in half, quilted and batted for a generous size Crib or could easily be Lap Size--2 WINNERS this time! I can't wait for that. Please add me to your favorites or follow my blog to watch for that giveaway.

Remember, the pattern for Brenda's Quilt, I've titled "With All My Heart" is now available in my etsy shop. Visit or you can also click on the link in my sidebar. Thank you all again! I look forward to reading more of your comments and reading your blogs!!
