100 Quilts for Christmas Results // 2010

*Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Post Here*

Hello friends! Between learning how to long arm quilt today, tallying up our 100 Quilts for Christmas total, picking fun giveaway winners, going to the park two days in a row with best friends that have since moved away, spending time at Grandma and Grandpa’s house–its been a lovely day.

The total: I have counted at least 120 quilts donated  to date!  I know that some of these quilts would have been donated regardless, but I also know 100 Quilts for Christmas inspired me to make a quilt (or four or five) during the busiest time of the year. We’ll fix that next year :) The words “thank you” seem inadequate. As a parent, I feel so lucky and blessed to be able to provide my own children with love, a home, necessities, (quilts) and so many things we all hope to be able to give to the little ones we love. I am grateful that collectively we are able to provide something warm and lovely for a little one this holiday season. So, thank you. I have a few more thank yous to give and a few more things to share, but it will have to wait until another day.

And now, the prizes. :)

1. A fat eighth pack of Heather Ross’s Mendocino fabric: Natalie from School of Crafts. Here is one of her three quilts, a great variation on a coin quilt.

2. Jennifer Paganelli fabric: Sharon from Vroomans Quilts donated two quilts!

3. Something from Lindi ( Love the Day)’s shop : winner is Quilted Cupcake, who got together with friends and made twenty quilts for Project Night Night!

4. Meadowsweet FQ pack: Nancy from Dark Horse Farm Designs linked up three quilts–and I can’t wait to tell you what she and her friends in Connecticut have been working on.

5. Headband from Mary at http://www.photographybydmc.blogspot.com/ : Kristie @ OCD

6. Mug Rug from Mary at Pin-Sew-Press:  Sarah at the Aftercraft (quilt below)
7. Quilting from BackPorch Quilters: Karen at Quilted Seasons (I wish I could have thrown my hat in for this one!)

8. Zipper pouch from Linda: Marci–love her great quilt below

Thank you to everyone! I would have loved to put pictures of all the “winning quilts” in this post, but alas, the computer I am using is s-l-o-w. I plan to send a note to the winners soon!

    120 quilts is so awesome! Congratulations!

    I’m planning for next year’s quilts now so I’m not trying to do them in a mad rush. And my sister and mother are both hoping to participate as well next year. What a fantastic new tradition.

    Yay! Thanks so much, Kate, and also to Mary for the super cute headband! I know my daughter will adore it!

    I am so happy you exceeded your goal and got 120+ quilts! It is nice to know there will be that many more babies enjoying some snuggly goodness this Christmas.

    Yay! I am so excited I won something. I never win, ok well I guess I can’t say that now :)
    Thanks for putting together such a great charity event! Looking forward to helping out next year
