I'm nervous typing this. My hands are shaking and I'm getting that clammy sweaty thing going on. And I don't think it's due to my lack of shower or all natural deodorant either.
Nope. It's because today is the day I'm giving away the most awesomest sewing machine ever. Yes. The Janome 6600!
There were 1787 comments to the blog post. Add in the 700ish people actually participating in the quilt along that joined the Flickr group and shared their progress (thus earning them extra entries!) for an additional 25,850 entries. This gives a grand total of 27,637 shots at the prize.
And the randomly selected winner corresponds to #16,058 which belongs to
Congratulations! Email me at email@example.com to claim your prize.
Whew. My heart is still beating fast. And yes, I'm still a little sweaty. Thank you very much. But I would like to say how much fun I've had with the entire quilt along. The community that has formed over on the Flickr group is supportive, encouraging, outrageously funny and one that I hope will keep on creating and sharing. Thanks to each and every one of you for inspiring me. For sharing your creativity. And for keeping me up till way past my bedtime every night for 7 weeks.
P.S. Ruth over at Sew Love Fabrics (one of my favorite places to buy fabric) is hosting a giveaway on her blog. She is giving away a set of 12 half yards of fabric from Paula Prass' new line called Summer Soiree. Dude! That is exactly the right amount of fabric to make the quilt from my first quilt along. Skedaddle on over there and enter!
