Soooooooo...

...with the help of you WONDERFULLY AWESOME people I hit 101 as of yesterday!!!  Anyone interested to know who won the $50 gift certificate to The Fat Quarter Shop?  I didn't think so. 

So instead I'll show you the result of my weekend sewing...Schnibbles Paganini - Version 3.


I love this little quilt!  It was was so quick and easy and ALL from my stash.  It's like a morphing of Carrie Nelson and Kim Diehl into one super cute quilt.  The little red corner stones were not part of the original pattern but I really like the extra little pop...and let's be honest...it made sashing all the blocks together easier.  I hate matching seams without cornerstones.

So NOW are you ready to find out who won?  Me too!  The Random Number Generator has chosen...drum roll please...


Congratulations Gail!!! Please email me your mailing information and I'll get that gift certificate out to you ASAP. 

To everyone, you have my deepest gratitude for helping me out.  I hope that you continue to stick around and enjoy your time here.  I don't know how soon I'll resubmit my blog to AccuQuilt.  It seems there were a lot of people on AccuQuilt's Fan Page that were upset by my (and others) posting on Facebook for help.  It was never my intention to offend anyone. 

For anyone I have offended, I'm truly sorry.  I just wanted the opportunity to give away a GO!.  I've decided to take the gift certifcate I won and put it towards a Studio.  Again, I really hope you continue to hang out with me...even if I don't get to give away a GO!.

Anyway...back to good thoughts...

Stay tuned because I have some more FUN things in store for y'all in the very near future that will include a quick and easy tutorial for some stashbusting...and maybe even a Paganini giveway related to the little beauty I posted about today!

Now I'm off to finish that darn Crockett quilt.  I'm determined to finish it by tomorrow afternoon!

I LOVE that quilt!!! It is WONDERFUL! You did such a great job picking your fabrics! and you know that I love that brown! p.s. it's none of my business but how can asking for help on facebook be any different than blogs and online stores that ask you to blog about their giveaways or like them on FB for an extra chance to win their giveaways??? They do that to get more readers/customers. It doesnt seem to me that you (or the others) did anything underhanded or wrong? Just my opinion...

OMG I won! How cool! I came to your blog via Quilt Hollow and loved what I saw - btw, I only follow blogs once I've had a good look through the content.

Love the quilt - you've had a busy weekend. Your "quick & easy" quilt looks fantastic.

Darlene said...

Woohoo a great win for Gail - she's a sweetie!

Love Paganini - the read corner stones are PERFECTION, Monica. Fabulous additon.

The whole Accuquilt GO! giveaway thing has gotten out of hand. Feelings have been hurt, people have been offended, etc. - just chalk it up to a challenge in life. Just relax and enjoy your blog. I will always visit and not because you're giving something away. (hugs)

Oh I love your Paganini!! Great colors!~ now you have me thinking about making another! LOL I need to finish the one I have started! :-o

I agree with Darlene abt the GO! business. I visit for the same reason~ you have an awesome blog and you make so many cute things!

Have fun with Ms Crockett~ I know your last blocks will be beauties! :-0

The Paganini, with the added interest of the cornerstones, is lovely.

Call me stupid ...but for God's sake what IS that fabulous GO! thing. Never heard of on this side of the ocean :-))
And I like your blog, I love your quilts and I'm staying (don't think you can get rid of us that easily :-)) )

Woo Hoo! You made it!

Quilt Hollow said...

I LOVE THIS QUILT!!!! I absolutely love what you did with the extra "punch" and it matches my home wonderfully you know!
As for the Accuquilt follow thing they stirred up....that was insane for them to have done that and I honestly don't think they had a clue and now are back pedaling awfully fast. I'm so glad I was already following you already and because I enjoy your blog and didn't want to miss a post!

What a wonderful quilt! I love the fall colors and the red corner stones really finish it nicely.

Wendy said...

Excellent job on the quilt! Love the red setting stones. You're right, really adds the pop! Congrats to Gail ... lucky dog! :) I have to agree with Darlene...before I ever hit the follow button, I make sure I enjoy the blog first. I enjoy yours and your beautifully shared work. Thank you!! Until next time ... warm happy heart wishes :)

Awesome job on your Paginini, Monica. I love cornerstones as well and usually add them whenever I can.

Congratulations to Gail! I love your Paganini. I finally selected the fabric from my stash to start mine. I hope to get it cut out today (fingers crossed). I, too, have topped the 100 follower mark (despite the naysayers).
