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:
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???
This week’s quilty inspiration comes from Victoria at The Silly BooDilly.
This block is called a Wonky Star. When Victoria posted a tutorial for this block on her blog (click on the picture), there was a collection of these blocks being sent to Australia to help make quilts for the Bushfire victims. I thought the block was really fun, and it fit my style really well. I used this block to make a breast cancer quilt for a friend. It was very simple to do, but I really like it because there are no points to line up. The charm of this block is in it’s wonkiness, so you don’t have to worry about being overly precise. I will probably use this block in another quilt someday, it would be a great scrap buster!
I have also signed up for the ‘Fall into Fall Giveaway’ and today is the day! This will be my first giveaway, so I want to make it a good one for you guys. Today I have decided to give away two prizes:
Each of these are a set of 10 fat quarters.
All of these fabrics are from my local quilt store, but I have discovered that they have spent too much time on my shelves. So rather than having them look all sad and forlorn, I want to send them to a home that will make them into something beautiful.
So how can you enter my giveaway? Well I have decided to do my giveaway ala ‘Pioneer Woman’. If you have never visited her blog, do it. She is so funny and her posts crack me up all the time. She hasn’t done this type of giveaway in a while, but I always thought it was so much fun.
All you have to do to enter is give me a caption for this picture that has my kitty, Ciao in it:
It can be long, short, silly or serious, just have fun! If you are not feeling a caption, you may just leave me a regular comment as well, though that’s not quite as much fun!
One winner will be drawn at random from all comments on this post only. The other winner will be my favorite caption as picked by me.
The giveaway will close on October 15th. The winners will be announced on October 17th. The contest is open to all quilters from the U.S. or internationally. Remember this is for fun!
