And the winner is.....but first some quilting pictures.

I've been up to my eyeballs in customer quilts! This was a cute little table runner and the circle loops look really great with the polka dots in the fabric.

I need to come up with a name for this, but "pointy flower with swirls" works for me now. This is a picture of the back of the quilt. My customer wanted to see the quilting, what pressure!

This one is my "flower and leaf." It went really well with the flowers in the fabrics.

This was a fun quilt. I traced around the butterfly wings and did big circle stippling throughout the quilt. I liked how it turned out.

This quilt was fun, but it took a long time. Each star and horseshoe was a template that I traced and then I quilted it. The borders on this quilt were really fun too, I will show that at a different time.

Oh, I can't forget this little guy! It's his birthday today and I can't believe he is 2 already!

So, drum roll please! The winner of the gift certificate is Mary from Quilt Hollow. I couldn't help but laugh at her comments and the fact that she came to make me laugh a second and third time. The winner of my special gift for the most referrals is Holee from Bea's Hive.

Holee- please email me your address and Mary just email me!

I want to thank all of you who commented and made me laugh and cry. I wish I could make all of you winners, but then I would be broke. Don't worry though, I will keep up the giveaways, so stay tuned. Oh, and amongst all the craziness of never ending customer quilts, being a wife and mom and trying to keep up this blog, I have managed to piece three quilts in the last couple weeks and write 5 new patterns. I will be posting about my new patterns next week. I can't wait to show you all. Have a simply marvelous weekend!

Absolutely beautiful quilting Judi, though I think you should call the one with all the flowers, 'Judi's Garden' or 'Judi's Bouquet'. Anyway, what a talent you have. Thank you for sharing the pictures. Also, a big congratulations to Mary for winning the giveaway and also to Holee as winner of your gift for referrals. Way to go ladies!!! Thanks again Judi for a fun giveaway.

I'm probably too late but I found a day I can go to Sandy for the quilt show if your offer is still good of a ticket. I could go on Friday, May 8th. Also, if I brought my married daughter are tickets still available to buy at the door? I would appreciate any information you could give me. Sorry it took so long to get back to you but life is a bit nuts around here right now with my son getting married next month and another son leaving on a mission. It's wonderful craziness but it's still busy. My husband is urging me to go and take a day out of the house!! Woohoo, if the ticket isn't available anymore at least I get to come down and see some friends elsewhere in the Salt Lake area! Cindy onlycs11@comcast.net I'll caome back and delete this comment after I hear from you so my email isn't posted forever. Thanks.
