Blog Tour Aftermath

Whew! Remember the song by the Irish Rovers, "Wasn't That A Party"? It's been playing through my head since Friday when the blog tour ended!
Thanks to all the visitors for the great comments and emails. It sure would be easy to get used to hearing such nice things all the time. Here's the results of the give-away from my blog: using a random number generator (who doubles as my first born son), Sallie from Texas (who obviously kept her horseshoe and rabbit's foot close by on Friday) was chosen as the winner of a copy of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 3. Sallie graciously declined her prize as she also had won a copy from another blog. Thank you Sallie for being such a good sport. The new winner of the magazine is Erin from Illinois. Congrats, Erin! The generous folks at Quiltmaker have your address and will send the magazine directly to you. Since I had a spare copy of the magazine, I decided to have another draw... this one not quite so random. This draw was made from local comments and the winner is Lesley B. Thanks Lesley for your support.
Since today is Mother's Day and in the spirit of fairness (there is as yet one random number generator in this house who didn't get a turn) there will be one more give-away. If you would like to win a copy of my Maritime Beauty pattern as well as a set of 10 pre-printed tear away foundations leave a comment on this post.
As before, make SURE your email address is included in your comment. If you are not sure it's there, send a quick email to me with the info.
I hope everyone enjoyed this blog tour as much as I did; good luck in the big draw from Quiltmaker!
Edit: The Give-Away is now closed, will post the winner shortly. Thanks to all who participated.

  10. Hi Karen - I referred Jan, the owner of The Sewing Basket in Salmon Arm, to your website. She was interested in the Farrago pattern, but was also pleased to find patterns that were a little more accessible for a class. I suspect Maritime Beauty is one of those - if I won the pattern I could join in the fun.

  15. Hopefully I'm not too late but I would love to have your Maritime Beauty pattern. It's gorgeous. I haven't done any paper piecing yet although I did watch Fons and Porters' show this weekend and that's what the show was all about. It was really interesting to actually see it being done.

  20. Hi, Karen: Thanks for a chance to win this beautiful pattern. I looked on your website and didn't see these pre-printed foundations listed. Do you sell them separately as well (for when I make more Maritime Beautys?)
