Drum roll please! You all had a great chance to win this giveaway! I put your names in a basket, closed my eyes and drew one! Congrats to Sherri, of A Quilting Life, you have won the giveaway for a new Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazine! Sherri, send me an email with your address so I can ship it out to you! Thanks for all who participated. I really appreciate your comments and hope you do enjoy the magazine, even if you have to go out and buy one!!! It has lots of great blocks in it to inspire some wonderful new quilt designs.
Today is Shop Hop in Vegas, so the girls and I are going to be all over town today, checking out the shops and of course finding a great lunch somewhere!! Eating is a top priority after all! I'll fill you all in on how it goes, and all the great new finds! Sherrie, since you live fairly close by, maybe you are coming into town for Shop Hop too! That would be fun. Just look for the crazy bunch of ladies who laugh too much!!

I feel so fortunate to be asked to participate along with other designers to make my own block which I call the Star Crossover block you see above.
