Third Quarter Monthly Color Challenge Winner
Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends! We have been playing along with Jen at Patterns By Jen for almost two years in her monthly color challenge blocks. We have a wonderful quilt from last year’s color blocks gracing our couch. Both Addison and Dominic like to point out the different colors in the quilt. Imagine our surprise when we recently received an unexpected email from Jen entitled “Winner”.
Quilt Pattern Winner
What a happy email to receive! Jen informed me that we were one of the winners from the third quarter sponsor drawings. We won a pattern from Carole Lyles Shaw and a gift certificate. Carole reached out and sent us a link to her Etsy shop to select a pattern. That was probably one of the most difficult selections we’ve had to make, as Carole has several that are eye catching.
After much deliberation, we selected Turning Corners. The pattern also includes another design called Lost Corners which really spoke to me, and may be our first focus.
Fabric Gift Certificate Winner, Too
Carole didn’t stop with a choice of selecting one of her patterns – she asked what online fabric shop did we enjoy? She sent over a gift certificate for $50 from our choice – Missouri Star Quilt Company. We will be carefully reading the pattern and selecting some new fabrics to try out this new pattern.
BIG Thank You!
Thanks are due to both Jen and Carole! We are incredibly blessed to have won these prizes. I hope you take a moment to check out both Carole and Jen’s website links above. Jen will be giving away fabulous gifts from her sponsors again this fourth quarter. I think our version of Turning Corners or Lost Corners will be on our first quarter list for 2021. It is tempting to jump right into this project, though . . .
