Hands2Help - And We Have A Winner!

Hi, all!

Well, it's been one week now since we started the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge for 2017, and I am absolutely blown away by your response!  As of 8:30 last night, there are one hundred fifty one people signed up to participate!!  That. Is. Amazing!!!!

Now, if you are just arriving at the party, don't be sad - you can still enter and participate.  The only thing you've missed is a chance at winning the sign-up giveaway - but there are more giveaways at the end of the Challenge for those who finish and send in their quilts.  This is only the beginning!  If you want to sign up, click here and scroll down to the entry form and fill it out.  

And now, the moment you've been waiting for - 
who will be the winner of this beautiful jelly roll of Splendid by Amy Butler donated by Free Spirit Fabrics?

I gathered up all the names and extra entries and ran them through Little Miss Random...

...and the winner is - - - 
Beth Talmage!!  
Congratulations, Beth!  
I'll get your jelly roll in the mail sometime this week!


Next week is the Hands2Help Tips, Tutes & Tasty Things link-up week!  Start thinking about your best sewing or quilting tip, a great tutorial, or your favorite recipe for a yummy snack to sustain you while quilting, or a great easy meal to keep the family fed while you create!  I hope you'll share your favorites with us next Sunday by linking up a new post, old post, someone else's post, a link to a great recipe or tutorial - it's all good!  

See you next week!!!



PS - I sent an email last night to everyone on the sign-up list.  Please check to see if you received it - if you don't see it in your regular email box, check your spam!  If you didn't get one, you aren't on the sign-up list, so please email me directly at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com so we can get you properly signed up!!  And there were a few of you who left comments last Sunday that were no-reply bloggers - you might check to see if I left a reply to your email to contact me!
