Look What I Won!

I love looking at quilts, all kinds of quilts, and I will search the word "quilt" and then check out the websites to see if I find any new and different ones that I would like to make. Well, one day while doing that I found this site http://www.quiltsandquilttops.com/
I looked at the quilt and found out that you could win a quilt top in a drawing that they have every 3 months or so. What you do is pick out a quilt out of the choices given and that would be the quilt you would win. I thought, what have I got to lose, so I entered the drawing and forgot about it. Well, last week I got an e-mail stating that I had won a quilt and I was so excited! I usually don't ever win anything and then to win a quilt was just unheard of. I received the quilt last Friday and it is wonderful. The backing and binding was included so all I have to do is quilt it. How awesome!



This is the quilt! It is not one that I would make for myself so I think that is why I picked it. The quilt is very well made and will quilt up nicely.

Here is a close up of one of the blocks.
Here is a close up of another. I am still in awe that I won! I will treasure this quilt always and can't thank the Linda enough for having the drawing! I will post another pix once I get it quilted and hope I can do it justice. Gosh, this is almost like Christmas! :D
