Texting While Sewing Winners

Many thanks to Kerry and Ayumi who have spent the last few days studying the top ten blocks and making difficult decisions.  The top ten blocks were judged for their creative use of text fabrics.  Of course all of the blocks used text fabrics creatively so that’s what made the decision so hard!  After much deliberation, we are pleased to announce and congratulate the three winners of the Texting while Sewing Contest:
First Place Winner
A big congratulations goes out to Laurraine who produced this amazing block called “Scalloping on the Bias Cafe.”  There is such a huge range of teeny tiny text bits in this block and they are used so cleverly with humor as well.  
Laurraine will receive:
A $50 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop.  
From Sew Me A Song, a bundle of eight half yard cuts of Becca’s newest and greatest text fabrics for a total of 4 yards.

From Quilted Treasures, a Lucy’s Crab Shack Bundle your choice of “Guy” or “Gal” (gal pictured above).

And for those who have trouble with the fine print (he, he, he) a Beam N Read hands free crafting light and magnifier.

Second Place Winner

A round of applause please for Cindy, who created an imaginary conversation between two sisters on an iPad.  She took the “texting while sewing” theme quite literally!  Clearly Cindy’s years of selvage collecting has paid off in this block.
Cindy will receive:
A $40 gift certificate from Sew Fresh Fabrics to spend however you like.
A $35 gift certificate to Zipit, my all time favorite zipper shop on Etsy.
From Sew Me A Song, a fat quarter bundle of eight of Becca’s newest and greatest text fabrics for a total of 2 yards.
Third Place Winner

Kristy has won third place for her Quilt Bible.  Look at the tiny piecing on those sample blocks with their names fussy cut below.  And I think that the selvage bookmark is genius.
Kristy will receive:
A $25 gift certificate to spend at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics.
From Sew Me A Song, a fat quarter bundle of eight of Becca’s newest and greatest text fabrics for a total of 2 yards.

1/2 yard cuts of the three colorways of Summersville Alphabetty for a total of 1 1/2 yard from Marmalade Fabrics
And a charm pack of Summersville from Quilted Treasures.
For one last time, I would like to thank all the contestants for taking the time and creative energy needed to join my contest.  And thank you so much to all my sponsors who made entering this contest oh so tempting!
