Here are the four winners who will be receiving a copy of this book in the mail.  We had 608 comments which is almost alarming to me – maybe I should filter what I say if that many people are listening to me!  Eek!

Thank you to everyone who commented!  I read them all and I consider you all close friends!  Who else do I talk to this much?

    608!! That doesn’t surprise me. Your blog is fun, interesting, educational, and a great way to learn about so many things. Thank you, Mary:) It’s going to be 60 degrees here in Central Ohio tomorrow–wow!!

    Congrats to all the winners. If the winners were the first four to respond, then it seriously puts west coasters at a disadvantage, sadly. But with that said, I will go ahead and buy this book, now that I know I won’t get it as a prize — it looks pretty good, and seriously, you can never have too many quilt books – or cookbooks!!!

      Bernadette – do you think I’d be that unfair? Really? Connie picked these numbers: 29, 202,380,601 at random.

    How fabulous that you have that many people following your blog; it just shows how much we all enjoy hearing about what you’re up to! No need for filters; we like you just the way you are. (With a nod to Mr. Rogers.)

    I purchased the book and it arrived last night. It was more than I expected. My preference is not for bright colors and there was so many traditional patterns I was excited with the possibilities! Wonderful book!

    Hey Y’ll,


    My KY Sis texted me to tell me I had won! Of all days I had made-up-my-mind to NOT do computer this morning – NOT do anything until these blocks on the design wall are sewn together. I think they call that a quilt top. It seems like so long since I have put one together. Hee Hee!

    And that motivation to stop putting other things before quilting is what prompted me to respond and join the Sew Along, etc. etc. And now I AM A WINNER! “WINNER, WINNER, Chicken dinner!” My grands say that! Mary, cover the ears of the chickens!

    HUGS to all 600 plus of us!
    Texas had 70 degree weather yesterday and I ate lunch outside!

    If the prize is the book that came out right around Thansgiving, I already bought it, so its okay that I didn’t win. ~~ Pamela

    You are loved and followed. Reading your blog and the pictures you post keeps me connected to the country life of my childhood. Nothing like that in Southern California.
