Happy Fourth of July! 7-4-22

The numbers Connie chose are 399 and 57.

After searching and reading I think these are the winners:

Mary – 58

Judy G. – 412

I will stand corrected if I missed your correct number – I have read and read comments and I THINK this is correct.

These winners need to email me their mailing addresses so I can send them the scraps.

I’m sending this on to Connie at the lake to confirm.

    Hi Mary.
    I have loved your blog for many many years. I read it first each day! Somehow I got deleted from the blog subscriber list last week and cannot figure out how to get back on. So I am asking to be reinstated on the subscriber list from your end. Thank you so much. My Dirty Dozen project this month is to finish Noah’s Ark which I began on a cruise back in 2009. It is your Country Threads pattern and I’ll send a picture when it’s complete. Thanks again for getting me back on the list.

      Dorothy – I never took you off the list so try this — unsubscribe via your email and then resubscribe. If it doesn’t work I’ll forward your concern to Kayla. You know how I feel about technology- it’s so frustrating to me and I don’t know how to fix anything! How do you know you were taken off the list?

    On July 3 at 6:16 pm I guessed 57. Not sure why I chose that number but it seemed lucky. I bet you had a lot of comments to go through.

    Happy birthday, Mary! If wishes were dollars you’d be opening another bank account today; you are one well-loved lady. I hope that your day was extra discuss, just like you! 🥳

    Congratulations to the winners…actually, I think we are all winners. Mary and Connie are leading the parade, while we all fall in behind smiling and waving, creating our own scraps.
    Happy 4th to all

      Thanks, Jo… I think we all needed a joyful picture in our minds today. Maybe Mary and Connie could be on a float (decorated with a quilt theme, of course) with quilted ‘queen capes’ (or Quilting Queen capes – sounds like a Jim Shore project) and we could be waving quilted flags and handing out mug rugs (or little bags of scraps) to the crowd! Quilt scrap confetti sounds like a lot of fun, but who would want to waste a scrap!

    What fun! Love your flag photo, too! Happy 4th of July!🇺🇸

    Congratulations to the scrap winners. I have been working on several and love the spontaneity of it.

    Mary and Connie thank you providing so much to your readers and followers.

    It’s a sad day for all those who have lost love ones. This is not the American way.
    My daughter lives in the neighborhood just west of the shooting in Highland Park, IL
    That just too close.
    Stay safe and alert as you leave your home.

    Congratulations, winners. I agree, who would think a contest to win scraps of fabric would get so many responses and generate so much excitement among the blog readers? What fun this blog is to follow!! Daily quilt shows, animal pictures, fun facts (like “gutters” in barns), isn’t this just the best? I’m like others, I look for this blog each day. I did some cutting out of a couple of Three One Yard Quilt projects for charity yesterday. One was patriotic and I am heading to my sewing space to sew it up on this day to celebrate my country’s birthday. I’m going through my own stash to put together some of these fast and fun projects. Happy Fourth of July!

      Marsha from Kansas – this just makes me chuckle! Excitement for somebody else’s scraps!!!

    Enjoy your scraps, winners. This was fun, Mary.
    We are having a sunny day instead of a grey one today so we are celebrating outside.
    I have been working on a primarily pink runner.

      Sue in Oregon – I’m working on a pink project, too!

    Yes we do Betty and I couldn’t agree more with your thoughts. We have so much to be thankful for, if only we took moments to reflect and appreciate them. Mary and Connie’s blog brings so much joy to our days and as much as I don’t like screens to stare at, I never tire of the quilts, pets, farm pictures and gatherings their blog continues to give me.
    Happy Fourth to all of you here in US and around the world who chime in to let us know how you are.
    Someone will enjoy your scraps for sure!!!

    Isn’t it wonderful? Only in America can we get really excited over a bunch of scraps. Leave it to us quilters. Quilting gives us great joy. The Country Threads blog also gives us great joy. Thank you Mary and Connie.
    You give us great joy, too. Too bad the rest of the world doesn’t share our thoughts. Congratulations to the winners!! We have so much to be thankful for.
    Take care everybody. Betty in Rapid City
