"Giveaway Winner"

Wow!  I can't believe how many of you want to make a red and "something" quilt!  So many!  In my mind's eye I can just "see" them all hanging together on display.  What a beautiful sight that would be, don't you think?  It was so hard to choose, but one entry stood out for some reason and I think it's because of how I got the stack of red solids in the first place.  It was a gift to me from the owner of my LQS for contributing so much to the start of their KONA solids club.  I did make a bit of stuff, to be sure......but it was so fun!  Anyway, this is the comment that touched my heart:

Zany Quilter:  "I'm in the Las Vega Modern Quilt Guild and I think we would use it for a challenge/charity quilt for an upcoming auction.  We would likely pair it with earthy khaki or bone color in some modern pattern.  It would be a shared project with every member making a block or two from the same fabrics."

I have e-mailed Zany Quilter for her mailing info, so I hope she gets back to me soon.  I love the fact that the stack will be used for a charity quilt.  Thank you all, a hundred times over, for your nice comments and tries for the prize.  I have something else in mind for another giveaway in the near future, so stay tuned.  I think you'll like it.  That time, I think I won't tell you and just give it to someone randomly.  Wouldn't that be fun?

I like those random give a ways. It seems like a friendly gift to someone that regularly visits.

Happy 4th. Be well, cool and safe.
