Second finish of 2011: My Fall Equinox quilt. I made the top as part of the Fat Quarterly quilt-along last year. I finished the top on the day of the Fall Equinox, so what better name for it? And now here it is, completed well before the spring equinox. : ) (Small victories, small victories.) The fabric is Wildwood by Erin McMorris, along with a smattering of Moda Bella Solids (Willow, Celery, Clover, Baby Yellow, Goldenrod, and Golden Wheat).
The back is a random collection of some Wildwood yardage that I had on hand, plus an attempt to echo the pattern on the front. And finally, the quilting is the easy wavy-line quilting which I learned about from the quilt-along, and I’ve raved about it here and here.
And I realized that all the green in this quilt matches my family room wall color, so I finally have a cuddly couch quilt that matches my decor.
And finally, what you’re really here for: The giveaway winner! The winner of the Wonderland fat-eighths is … #64, Heather! Heather said:
“I’m fairly new to quilting, but I have always been drawn to the quirky Alexander Henry stuff (especially if there are birds involved), and a line called Boutique by Chez Moi. So girly (unlike myself!)”
But guess what? Heather is a no-reply blogger. All comments made on my blog are automatically emailed to me, and if you have the correct settings in your Blogger profile, your email address comes with it, allowing me to reply directly to you via email. If your settings aren’t correct, you are a no-reply blogger, and I have no way of contacting you. So Heather, please email me by noon tomorrow to claim your prize, or I will have to draw another winner.
And while we’re on the subject, I enjoy replying to the comments made on my blog—I can’t always reply to them all, but I usually spend time at least once a week replying to comments. So if you haven’t received any replies to your comments on my blog or on others, that probably means you’re a no-reply blogger. Here’s how to fix it, if you’re so inclined:
In blogger.com, click on Dashboard.
Select Edit Profile.
Check the box for “Show my Email Address.”
How easy is that? Happy Valentine’s Day, bloggy peeps! I love you all. : )
