Taming the Beast and Giveaway Winners

Even though there was probably a thousand other things I could have been doing this weekend, I decided to finish the last three 12" blocks in the Solstice Quilt and piece the beast together.  For a quilt I basically threw together with no fabric plan, I have to say I couldn't be happier with it.  David asked me what I was going to do with it (it's a pretty big quilt).  My answer, quilt the crap out of it and hope that one day it makes many living room forts (you know grandkids).  His comment was it would also make a nice watch-the-fireworks quilt.  Whatever the case may be, I now have a really big quilt top that will need to be quilted...join the club big boy, there are many waiting.

Also, a huge Thank You to everyone that stopped by and left comments on the release of Star Blossom!  An even bigger thank you, if you stopped by my Craftsy Store and picked up a copy!  There was a total of 69 comments left on the blog post and 4 left on Bloglovin for a total of 73 comments.  I used a random number generator on my phone to determine the 3 winners. 

So congratulations to...

I will be sending out an email shortly to the winners with their copy of Star Blossom.  If you would like your own copy of Star Blossom, it is for sale in my Craftsy Store.  It is a beginner friendly pattern and includes four size options. 

Well, this wraps up this Monday visit here in Wonderland.  Let's all start this week off with a smile and try to spread some love each day this week.  Hope you will stop back by later on in the week when I share my finished version of Sandra's Free Fall Quilt and the crazy up and downs I had while quilting it.


  1. The Solstice Quilt looks great! Congratulations on getting it finished. I hope you have a great week; seems like it is off to a great start.

  2. Congratulations to your worthy winners . That beast is going to take some quilting to pin him down . I can just imagine it will make a tremendous fort , or sailing ship etc

  3. Solstice, fantastic and huge!!! A keeper for any large event that will give ample cover or sitting room for many. Link up is looming, Freefall for us all has been a huge lot of fun ( with some troubled point joining thrown in ) mine is pinned, pattern for quilting sorted, I had a play in "paint" to see if it would work, and it did!!! A wet day, so will be sitting and quilting. So looking forward to seeing them all.

  4. Wow! That quilt is really something! Thanks, Tish, for the give away. I'm pretty excited to have been chosen as one of the winners. I'm going to download it tomorrow into my laptop and attempt a fabric pull. I don't have a very large stash, so wish me luck! This is one quilt that has definitely made my current to do list. XO

  5. Solstice is a lovely quilt! Have fun quilting the monster.

  6. Glad for you that you are nearing the end of the beast!! You will be thrilled to have it done:)
