Giveaway Winner!!!!! and a few other things..................

Okay - before I tell you the winner of my giveaway, I will let you know a couple of things. Right now, the emails are way behind - sorry about that. I don't think I will be getting back to everyone, so I am going to try and answer a few questions that keep coming up. I hope it will help with a lot of the emails I feel bad about not getting right back with an answer.

Right now - working on a book. Picture above is the smallest of glimpses of what I think is the most amazing quilt I have done so far! 3 down 4 to go and less than six weeks.

Am I taking new quilts for customers? Not now - I am booked out for a year, I will let you all know when I can add to my schedule. Oh - and thank you so much to my current customers who are patiently waiting to have their quilts finished. I promise it will be worth the wait - as soon as I can just get that August deadline out of the way.

What batting do I use? Mostly Hobbs 80/20, if I want to have two layers with extra loft for pebbling in my quilts, I add in some wool batting with the Hobbs 80/20.

What thread do I use? Superior Threads - So Fine, Highlights and Metallics - that's pretty much it.

Do you use the pre-wound bobbins - no, don't like them.

What machine do I use and is it computerized? A-1 Long Arm, no it's not - all free motion baby!

Okay - if I have missed any questions I am sorry.

Okay - other things - these cute Alphabet Soup FQB's just came in and I want to dive right in and make something with them. Since I can't right now, you can by going here and here and buying them and making something pretty out of them, I will be so jealous! But, get them out of here so I don't have to cry anymore that I don't have time to make something with them! We also have this line in 10 inch squares, 5 inch squares and 2 1/2 inch rolls, you can see all the Riley Blake Design precuts here.

Oh - how I want these! Anyway!~ On to the winner! Kasey has won! YAY!!!

She said: That Ruby layer cake is too pretty... hmm, October is just before November, which means that would be a great gift my husband could "surprise" me with!

Just email me Kasey at judi(at)greenfairyquilts(dot)com and Clint will send out the Holly Jolly FQB to you!

Thanks everyone, have a great week!

Congratulations Judi, your book on quilting will surely be one of those all time treasured books that will line every quilters library. I can hardly wait. Hopefully, I can purchase and autographed copy when it is released. I am a big fan of So fine but have not tried Metallics or Highlights. Are they easy to work with or do you need a lot of tension adjustment? It's funny Australians still love their cotton threads.

Congratulations on the book, but remember to take the time to breath! Love your shop, your prices and your service - just can't seem to keep your green pens - everyone 'borrows' them.
