Winner Winner

 Today is a special day.  One never to be forgotten.  Not because we should dwell on bad things but, to remember heroes and good that overcame evil as stranger helped stranger.  So I find it fitting that I should get to pick a winner on this special day.  That I get to bring a little joy to someone and put a little good into this world.  
I also love that this quilt made in honor of my maternal grandmother, Florence Yates DeRyke, is part of that good.  I don't really remember her.  She died when I was very young.  I am told I am a lot like her.  What an honor.  I know she was resourceful and loved children.  So this quilt is scrappy, contains the fabric line PB&J (along with Savonnerie, and one other that is eluding me at the moment.)  

The pattern for this quilt is in Fons & Porters new Scrap Quilts magazine. Along with the pattern for this scrappy star quilt that is pre-cut friendly.  In case you have a few leftovers from previous projects you would like to use up.  The  magazine is available on news stands next week.  
And as promised I have one to give to a lucky winner.  The random number generator picked #34.  Barbara  is our winner.   She said, "i have been making scrapy quilts "  Now she will have a bunch of new patterns to use up her scraps.  And create her own good in the world.

  5. Both quilts are lovely but the first one is really a favorite here! The pattern is great, just fantastic and looks like it was fun to make. Happy fabrics, great story and a perfect choice with the binding to wrap it all up.
