And the winner is...

Wasn't the Jaftex 85th Anniversary Blog Hop fun?  We had such a great time making our quilt and sharing our tips, but the best part was seeing all the comments from you!  Thank you all for participating.
Of course, there were lots of prizes given away in this event and we were so excited that the Grand Prize winner, Barbara Sokol, lives in our very own Peach State!  Barbara lives in Hartwell, Georgia,  and she normally shops at Annie's Pretty Pieces in Hartwell.  We know she's going to love that brand new Janome Skyline S5 machine!  Barbara...Congratulations!  
2nd Prize winner, Pat DeVore lives in Ohio and shops at Abigayle's Quiltery in Berea, Ohio.  She won the Aurifil thread box and  fifteen fat quarter bundles.
3rd Prize winner, Cathie Scanlon from Seattle won the Schmetz needle anniversary tin and six fat quarter bundles. Her favorite quilt shop is Karen's Quilt Shop in Seattle.

We had two lucky winners from the Little Quilts drawing. When we contacted winner Helen LeBrett from Hearldsberg, California  she shared that she started quilting more than 15 years ago with our book "Little Quilts All Through the House" published by Martingale & Company. Coincidentally, when we contacted our other winner, Debbie Miller, from South Carolina, she shared that she visits our store once a year as her son lives in a nearby town.  She also started quilting 20 years ago with our book!  She took hers to the copy shop and had it spiral bound so it would lay flat. She said she had made every quilt in the book! Both won a collection of Folio fat quarters to get a start on their own Hunter's Star quilts. You can see our step by step tutorial on the star and the unique striped binding  on the Hunter's Star on our  blog post from Sept. 25th.

If you'd like to go back and check out all the designers who participated in the Blog Hop, you can get a complete list here on the Henry Glass Blog.  You will love the creativity on the designer's blogs.

Congratulations to all of the contest winners - we can't wait to see what you'll create with your wonderful prizes!  Thank you, Jaftex, for a very successful and fun event and thank you to all of you for participating!
