Double the Fun

Today's the day for announcing the winner of the Lemoyne Star rule giveaway and I thought I'd send congratulations out to the winners with a pretty little bouquet of pansies. They always seem to be at their best just before I replace them with the summer annuals so I'm going to try and stretch them out so that I can enjoy them just a little bit longer.

And, I have a nice little surprise to share with you about the draw. Jane decided that she was going to add her ruler to the pot so there are actually two winners. How nice is that? Double the fun!

Thanks to everyone for playing along with the giveaway. I loved reading all of your comments about what you would like to make with the ruler and hope that the winners enjoy their new tool. Without further ado, the lucky winners as chosen by The Official Cookie Tester are Sue SA and Red Shoes.

Congratulations gals! Please email me your name and mailing address (cheesman @ without the spaces) so that I can get your rulers off to you and you can start creating.

On a slightly different note, a small crew of us got together for brunch and then enjoyed the quilt show in nearby Petawawa hosted by the Log Cabin Quilters guild. I always love seeing what inspires other quilters to pick up a needle and thread and create their masterpieces.

A surprise to me is that there is now a local Modern Quilt Guild in the area. It sounds like a small but mighty crew. This little 'Sister Mary Merlot' quilt made by one of their members made me smile. It was only about 14" square and was created based on a cocktail napkin of the same design. LOVE it, though I think that mine would be called 'Sister Mary Malbec'. 😇

There was lots of variety to hold our interest and several great vendors too. This scrappy tulip would be wonderful for a charity quilt - so bright and cheery. I'll have more eye candy next time....M

It's always inspiring to visit a quilt show especially with friends. The little sister quilt is a crack up LOL.
