Laurie K is going to jump up and down when her prize arrives in the mail! Laundry Basket Quilts “Charms” are English Piecing papers with cute messages on the back of the shapes.

Sew BitterSweet Designs is giving one lucky person – Kaz of K & K Quilting – a choice of a pattern. Eden Bishop won the “Quilting Gift Certificate” for $30.00 off the Quilting on a Baby size quilt or larger. (Baby, Lap, Twin. Full, Queen, or King) from Marcia’s Crafty Sewing & Quilting.
The Gift Certificate will be good for 4 months starting one month after the challenge ends. Excluding the Month of December for using the gift certificate. The quilting gift certificate is transferable to another person, so you can share it with a friend, if you’d like.
Marcia will do an estimate based on the size of the winner’s quilt top, quilting choices, thread choices, and batting and if they would like to purchase backing fabric from me. Winner can send backing fabric and batting with their quilt top, but I do have it available. This way the winner will have a good estimate of the value of your quilting prize.
