Guessing Game Winner Is… Fran.

Drumroll please…

I cut a total of 945 squares (751 – 2 1/2″ squares and 194 – 5″ squares)

The winner of my guessing game is Fran. She guessed 857. Her guess was the closest without going over.

I am going to say you cut a total of 857.

Congrats, Fran, please send me your name and address so I can get something pretty mailed off to you.

And a special thank you to everyone who left a comment. I enjoyed reading each one.

Many of you commented you wanted to see what I was making. I am making a quilt called Hugs and Kisses. I saw it at Little Miss Shabby’s site (link at bottom of post) and really loved it. It seemed easy enough for me to make. Scraps I have. Tons of them. This quilt is tailor-made for me.

So far I have 40 blocks finished. Can you see the X’s and O’s? 😀

Each block measures 5″ square. I will probably make 100 more. As I finish more blocks, I will rearrange them to mix the colors up well. And I’ll do a post in a couple days so you can see how I am making mine. I am doing two things different from the tutorial.

Hopefully mine will be as pretty as hers.

Go here for Little Miss Shabby’s tutorial. (Hope it’s OK. I borrowed this photo from her site.)

    Hi everyone. Thanks for your great comments. They keep me going and wanting to create.

    Update on the prize. It was mailed 8-28.

    I am still working on the H & K blocks. Should have a photo to show you soon.

    I received my wonderful gift from Donna’s guessing game. A mug rug, a mug and a cute little pin cushion that matches.

      Hi Fran!! Thanks for letting me know your gift arrived. I was hoping the mug didn’t break during the shipping.

      (You can see the mug rug and mug I sent Fran here.)
