Blog winners!!!

Cathy from Cabbage Quilts had a giveaway recently and I was lucky enough to win!

Today Cathy and I were going to be in the same area, so we arranged to meet in person so she could give me her prize.

Cathy is even more gracious in person than she seems on her blog! It was absolutely wonderful to meet Cathy again and I think we could have chatted all day!
If you haven't seen Cathy's blog, you are missing out some of the most wonderful quilts in blogland. Cathy is a very inspirational and talented quilter! Have a look at her mosaic quilt!!!

Here is what I won....

This book, by Jane Brocket, is full of information and inspiration! I am going to spend many hours with this book! Thank you Cathy!!!!!
Jane Brocket also has a blog and a website......lots more inspiration!!

Cathy also included a tape measure and a pretty card.

Take a look at the fabric Cathy used to wrap the prize...

How perfect is that!!!! Cathy's blog is called Cabbage quilts and mine is called Yellow Roses!

Now, to let you know the winner of my extra copy of Quiltmania. I drew a name randomly tonight and Darlene (no blog) is the winner. The magazine will be in the mail to Darlene next week.

My sewing for the week is in the following post. I was having a bit of trouble with blogger tonight, so I decide to separate my news into 2 posts.


  1. Hi Miriam,

    congratulations on winning this book. I have truly truly spent many many hours with it, as I had to translate it into Dutch :-). Lovely quilts in there!

  2. You are a winner!!

    Love the way the gift was wrapped.

    I appreciate the link to the mosaic quilt top. My goodness, it is gorgeous! I spent some time enlarging it and looking at it closely to try to figure out how it was done. That is a lot of quilting around the edge in front of her!!

  3. What a wonderful win and what's even better you get to meet a fellow blogger in person!!!
