Winners of the Random Give Away!!!!!

Thanks for all the comments!! I loved reading all about why you quilt. There are so many different reasons, and I enjoy many of the same wonderful things about quilting that you do. Thanks for sharing.

Here are the two winners of the Random Give Away!!! I think it's interesting that they both have blogs with the word "book" in the title! And, yes, I did use a random number generator!!!!

And here are the winners:

Sara, of The Quilting Bookworm, said: Wow, great giveaway!

Why do I quilt? I quilt for many reasons. One, it relaxes me. Just being in my own little world doing something I enjoy. 2. The challenge - I love puzzles and making quilts can be like putting together a puzzle. 3. The people you meet - I have met so many awesome people through blogs and quilts! 4. the people you touch - when I give a quilt away I can tell that the person who received it will cherish it and that makes it more special and warms my heart, and when its to a great organization that helps those in need it makes it even more special!
5. Its an art - a lost art. And while I can't draw or paint, I can sew and enjoy it!
That is why I quilt!


And, Becky, of The Quilting Booklady said, Why do I quilt? I love the preciseness of piecing. I love seeing the fabric under the needle. I love picking fabrics to go with a project. I love the friends that I have met through quilting. I love the generous spirit of quilters like you!

Sara will receive the quilting book, Quilts from Lavender Hill Farm and Becky will receive the five fat quarters. I'll get this in the mail early next week, ladies. I'm flying home on Sunday night, so I probably won't get them in the mail until Tuesday or Wednesday.

Happy Quilting!!!!!

Congratulations to the winners! I did not enter because I seem to be downsizing my quilting these days. However, I know these two ladies will be pleased indeed with their prizes.
