Happy Oscar night everyone! It’s hard for me to believe that five years ago, right about at this time, we were about to welcome our second beautiful baby girl into the world – Capri Grace. It’s been a crazy busy, birthday filled weekend – full of fun and cake – lots and lots of cake. I’ll be blogging soon about all the fun we had and of course about the incredible quilt that was put together for Capri. But tonight I do want to share with you quick snap shots of the FORTY-TWO beautiful quilts that were created for the ‘Wish Upon a Star’ Project QUILTING Challenge.

And – in the chaos that was today – we still managed to pick names out of the hat for the random prize winners!
I do have a small bit of sad news though…
Pip was just not in the mood to draw from the hat tonight. So, unfortunately that’s the only picture I got of her during the hat drawing..
The PRIZE WINNERS!
Everyone who enters a quilt into this weeks challenge, in the time frame given and following the challenge’s guidelines, will be entered into the random drawing to win the following prizes from our incredibly generous Project QUILTING sponsors:
$25 to Superior Threads goes to
$25 off Long Arm Quilting from Quilts by Barb
Papa had a little too much sugar this weekend too… goes to Janie Kemp!
1/8 yard hand-dyed wool or $15 gift certificate from Dye Candy goes to
(btw – in the picture above you can really see how nice Capri’s bangs look after she decided to cut it since her hair was getting in her…)
There is going to be A LOT going on on this blog this week so be sure to check back often. At some point tomorrow I’ll have the Public Voting up for the ‘Wish Upon A Star Challenge’, new blocks for the , My Favorite Block Quilt Along will be going up on Tuesday and Thursday (squeal), I’ll be showing off Capri’s amazing ‘future quilter’s quilt’, somehow I need to finish my goals for the ‘A lovely Year of Finishes’ for February, and of course, lots of closer looks at all the different quilts made! Only a few things happening
With that…I’ll leave you with a Sunday Haiku – this one is about Capri instead of sewing…
a beautiful smile
creative mind, caring heart,
my sweet, sweet Capri
