Quilt Winners!

So, back in March of this year an esteemed professor from MIT devised a spreadsheet type system for calculating and determining extra entries and such for my quilt giveaways. Using the mathematical formula the professor gave me, there were 14,173 entries into this quilt drawing.

::blink:: ::blink:: What?

Ok. So it was my husband who devised the system. Did it make it seem more official when it was the MIT punk?

On to the good stuff.




The above Sugar Snap quilt goes to Comment number 58 angoraknitter






The above Nest quilt goes to number 12,008 which corresponds to comment number 886 Shorty.





And the beautiful pink one above goes to comment number 1438 Kim and Jim.

The two quilt pattern winners (remember, 4th and 5th place winners win a Candy Bar Road quilt pattern from SuzGuz Designs??) are comment number 1 ambwee and comment number 1790 tracy . . . cause you know no self respecting random number generator thing-a-ma-bob is going to pick the very first or the very last number.

Congratulations winners. Email within .00004709 seconds of me posting this or you forfeit your prize and I get to keep it.

Just kidding. Email at dana@oldredbarnco.com within .00005 seconds or I keep it.

That's how I roll people.

Congrats! I had to laugh at myself - I found I was scrolling down the post ever so slowly - like a slow scroll would magically make MY name appear as the winner of the next one down.

Perhaps next time - we need to see Wendy's next chapter in the continuing saga!!!

Maybe one day I will. I can be bribed to stop the tantrum. With a quilt. lol :D

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Now there are four people I'm not crazy about, since you have given away 4 quilts this year....sniff...
I'm trying to be mature about it, but it's not easy.

I don't know if I can do this again, it is fun but nerve wracking.

Hey, Dana, you're the greatest person I know. Your music always makes me feel good, thank you for the playlist, it touches my soul and brings out happiness from deep inside me.

I can't wait for Christmas so I can try out the soap I bought from you to give to my grown-up children. Make some more of that one I ordered but you ran out of, hmmm, I forgot which one it was.

Hugs from Georgia
