Giveaway Winner & My Stripey Quilt

Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful comments on my first giveaway. The captions everyone came up with were simply awesome. I had a blast looking through them, but had such a hard time narrowing down my favorites.

Here are my top 10 favorite captions (In no particular order):

Kitty on a Hot Pinned Roof from Paulette

Yuck! I guess she must have said “quilt basting” not “quilt tasting!” from Riel

Ancient Chinese Kitty Toture from Karie

CAN YOU HAZ ANY MOAR PINZ?!?!? from Brittainy

Hmmm…now, where is the spot that will maximize destruction? WOMAN, KNOW WHO YOU’RE DEALING WITH! from Dot

Ummmm….no bologna….no cheese. Quilt sandwich? I think not…. from Kim

But I thought the song said Follow the YELLOW brick road?!?!? from Kristin

Ciao, you must place the remaining safety pins in their proper position. No lifelines and you must complete this level. Remember you have A MINUTE TO WIN IT! Ciao, your time starts now! from Nancy Sue Phillips

Here we have the native feline stalking the ever present pin bug. Watch now as it slowly stalks its prey. Those pin bugs can be quite a handful for the felines. from Mel

If only I could train Ciao to bind as well as he pins from Jackie W

All the entries were so creative!! I am blown away with what you guys were able to come up with, but I could only choose one as my winner. The reason I chose the winner is because we are a joking family. We are always teasing each other and joking around. A few years ago my husband taught my son to call me ‘woman’. You have not lived a day until you hear your 4 year old say “Woman make me dinner!” LOL Of course this was all meant in fun from my husband, and I think it is hilarious. (Though we have had to have the talk about when it is appropriate to call me this, it’s a little embarassing when he says it in the middle of Wal-Mart!! Oh and that he should NEVER call any other woman this as some may not think it is funny at all.) So with that reason, the winning caption came from Dot:

Hmmm…now, where is the spot that will maximize destruction? WOMAN, KNOW WHO YOU’RE DEALING WITH!

I also used the random generator to come up with the second winner. All comments left counted for the drawing, minus any duplicate posts. There were 309 comments left and the winner of the random drawing is Billie K from Billies Bee Blog with a post of:

Who’s been sleeping on my blanky???


Once again thanks to all my commenters and thanks to those who found my little blog interesting enough to add me to your follow list. I am truly honored and hope I can live up to it!! I will email the winners to get your snail mail address.

I thought I would show you a better picture of the quilt from my caption picture. I used the stripey quilt tutorial to make this one. I had initially made it to use at work since I was always cold, but then I switched jobs to an office where it wouldn’t be appropriate to have it, so now it just gets balled up and loved at our house (hence all the wrinkles!).


If you hang around my blog long enough, you will find that blue and orange is a common theme for me. This quilt was bound in a bright orange solid fabric.


The backing I used was just a big piece of fabric I had hanging around. It was kind of a stretchy material, so it wouldn’t have been suitable for using in a top.


This quilt was quick and easy to make, and I do plan on making another quilt using this method again soon. If you haven’t seen this before, be sure to check out my quick tutorial.

Happy Quilting!

  1. I’m so excited to win. Thanks so much! I sent you my snail mail and will be waiting by the mailbox…..grinning.


  2. Woman–that’s so funny! That’s what my cat calls me when she’s in a good mood. The rest of the time I’m just “human.” My husband calls me “woman” sometimes, too, but only when he’s really exasperated…so it happens a lot…

    I’m still reeling in disbelief! I won! Thank you, thank you, thank you!


  3. Congrats to the winners!

  4. Congratulations to both winners. It was a fun and different way to have a giveaway!

  5. I received my wonderful fabrics! Thanks so much for the giveaway.
