Remember Quiltmaker’s 100 block Road Tour Rally? I didn’t get the winners picked yet. This post is for that purpose.
We asked readers to tell us if they had ever been to a retreat before. I never answered the question myself. Yes…I have. I saw Bonnie Hunter in Storm Lake, IA. I saw Bonnie again in Moline, IL. I attended a retreat in Lake Okoboji, IA too. Then we hosted our own retreat but never got a chance to sew at it. That was in 2015. We have another retreat planned for this August.
The first winner is Deb who said, “No, I’ve never been to one….I think I’d want to walk around and see what everyone was working on and who was there….not sure i’d get much done!”
That’s funny Deb. After attending a retreat you will find that there are all kinds. Some people want to power sew…some want to eat snacks…some are early birds sewing at 5 am and some are night owls wanting to sew until 3am. There are truly all kids and there are plenty who enjoy the time simply meeting others and checking out other color combinations. Me…I’m usually the power sewer. Imagine that!!
Deb wins the copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks that will be coming from Quiltmaker magazine.
The second winner is Susie who said, “No, I’ve never attended a quilt retreat. Sounds like so much fun, though! I love the string/scrap element in your block. And I love your blog & look forward to reading your posts daily.”
Susie wins a copy of the magazine along with a copy of our book Country Girl Modern.
I went over to Susie’s blog and caught a few posts about a weather quilt she is making. I’d love to do one. It’s a little late now that it’s May but I’m tempted to try to catch up. Dang I wish I had seen that earlier. You can find here blog here.
Thanks so much to all who played along. Quiltmaker’s 100 Block issue is now and news stands.
