WINNER OF FLIGHTS OF FANCY

Oh dear. I have fallen asleep with the computer on my lap. It's been on my lap most of the day and eve while I read each and every give away post. My expectations were to meet a few creative types, or so I thought. By 10:30 pm Eastern Standard Time I read 261 posted comments plus 25 from the day when I posted about the upcoming giveaway, and another 67 comments that couldn't be posted. Lets see, thats 353. Unfortunately, I had to stop at 10:30 and made sure I read every entry that was sent up to the deadline.

SewMamaSew sure put on an incredible Give Away, didn't they? I thought I'd meet a few new creative types. Instead I met hundreds of passionately creative people with so many great ideas. I oohhhed and aahhhed as I read each one. Thank you all for the kind comments and alas I have chosen a winner. Emma sent an actual image of what she would do with the Flights of Fancy fabric. Emma, let me know where to send your goodies! Enjoy!

  2. How beautiful and creative -- and not to mention clever to include a visual! Well chosen. Congrats to Emma!

    And I didn't even enter -- planned to "think about it" first, then forgot. :( Just one less to read!

  3. Wow, thank you Paula, I'm thrilled to bits! I have emailed you through your profile - watch for an obscure email address (eho16677@...), though I've named the email so it should be clear what it is.

  5. I have gone over to Emma's blog to ask her how she made the quilt image. she did post about it, but I asked her to go into greater detail. She is in Australia...maybe she's asleep?
    Anyway, go check her out http://sampaguitaquilts.blogspot.com/

  7. Now my "must have" list is growing... 1) order flights of fancy 2) learn how to use EQ software (perhaps Emma will provide some hints!)

    Thanks for a great giveaway and loved your follow up post.

  9. Thanks! I used EQ (Electric Quilt design software) to design the quilt. It has a range of quilt layouts, blocks and fabrics, but you can also import and create your own. I used blocks from the software, 'borrowed' scans of the fabric to import, then played with the layout and fabric placement until I had something I was happy with. I've had no training with the software; just the book it came with and plenty of practice - I'm still learning.
    And I will certainly post a link here when I've made the quilt!
