Thank you all for taking part in the February Mini-Challenge, one event in the year-long 2012 Postage Stamp Quilts Charm Swaps and Challenges. There were so many interesting comments, I can feel the energy from all the great ideas for quilts floating around out there! Thankfully, the winners were randomly selected, courtesy of a shoebox and a helpful neighbor.The two quilters from the Chain Gang Team who win little sets of 100 two inch fabric charms are:
Anne, from Georgia, USA, who wrote:
Chain Gang for me! My goal is to chain at least a 100 pairs and to complete at least 2 blocks of 64 2 inch squares. This is fun!
…and Janet, of Caribou Crossings, from Yukon Territory, Canada, who wrote:
I’m joining the chain gang. I have 500 charms so far. I will try to have 200 of them paired together this month.
Amy, who wrote:
I’ll join the rainbow makers. My goal will be to cut charms from the fabrics I already own this month and hopefully have enough extras to participate in April’s swap!
…and Miss Lane, who wrote:
I really want to try to make PSQ. I am new to quilting and umm…. sewing as well. So I don’t know what team that makes me, but GO TEAM!
Winners, please email me with your full name and mailing address. Let me know if you are using 2.5 inch charms, otherwise I will assume that my standard two inch charms will be perfect for you.
I am so glad that many of you are already sewing! However, I completely understand just how addictive the desire to simply cut little squares is! If you haven’t started to chain pairs together yet, I hope you will soon. ©2012, The Curious Quilter, thecuriousquilter.net, maryeoriginals.com.
