TGIFF – #MSBHQAL – The Winners

Oh, you know what day it is! Yes, it is time to announce the winners of the #MSBHQAL from all of these amazing entries! Our glorious judge, Lee from Freshly Pieced was quick smart on that Ace of Base pause button and had her faves picked out on Wednesday. It was all I could do from blabbing it out all over the Internets. So let’s not delay one more glitter-sized second! Our two winners are: Shena at Apple Pie Patchwork and Brad’s Best

How wonderful are these two quilts?! I need everyone to throw some confetti in the air for Shena and Brad! I will send you both emails about collecting your prizes! One of you is gonna get a $50 gift certificate to Intrepid Thread and the other this rainbow collection of Aurifil thread. My favourite fabric shop, and my favourite thread? Am I jealous? Damn, straight! (No offence to my hetero heroes!)

But wait! We have two more random winners to select. Let me see here… Mr. Randy G says:
Which means Shena at Apple Pie Patchwork wins again. Okay, sorry Shena, that ain’t happening! LOL! Let’s try this again:
Oh hey, Suzanne Webb! (Her rainbow version is here!) You’re going home with the following Aurifil thread pack! I’ll be in touch! I think that rainbow centre blocks is a brilliant idea. Way to make it work!
And finally, Mr. Randy G also likes:
Congratulations Libby at No Airplane Here! Super happy your co-worker liked your #MSBHQAL quilt! Be careful, your other co-workers will want one, too. Look out for an email from me!
So that brings us to an end, y’all! Can you even believe it? Can you? Me, either! It’s been eleven weeks, and I don’t even know where they went. I promised you I would have you done before Thanksgiving, and here we are with two weeks to spare so you can get your potato mash on. (Try sweet potatoes, for a healthier, tasty option!)
I want to say a gigantic thank you to everyone who participated, big and small, because it would have been pretty lonely me quilting-along by myself. I guess that’s really just quilting, and no along-ing–so kisses and sparkles to all of you! Also, confetti cannons for our sponsors, Julie at Intrepid Thread and Aurifil, and judge, Lee at Freshly Pieced. I couldn’t have done it without you.
I have to thank my Sparkle family, Mr. Sparkles and Grandma Sparkles for supporting me on the sidelines, and not killing me after I made my 83rd herringbone block. I also want to thank all of my Rainbow Quilting Bee members for agreeing to make this block for me when I was Queen Bee. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have fallen so in love with it. Finally, I have to thank Anne at Play-Crafts for designing such a killer block, letting me use it for this QAL, and becoming a great friend along the way.
Sparkle tears of joy!

Linking up with TGIFF and Crazy Mom Quilts!

The #MSBHQAL will live on forever!

    Well done to the winners and thanks for the glittery kick up the butt to get 2 baby quilts and a puppy sleeping on the couch quilt done-ski! I didn't even know they were on my project list for 2013 LOL!

    Fabulous winning quilts!

  6. Sooli says:

    Congrats to the winners, they were both terrific quilts. I'm with Lorna, we were all winners as we now all have a little bit of rainbow herringbone action at our houses. Mine will be a 2014 finish I think! Madly chucking virtual glitter all over the place here (I've just had my carpets cleaned and there's no way any real glitter is hitting the floor here right now just now!) A big mwah to you Molli for such a great quiltalong!

  7. Pat says:

  11. Great job everyone! This was the most fun QAL ~ and I just adore how each and every quilt was so unique. Thanks Molli!

  12. I won! I have never won anything ever! I'm so excited! And the RNG picked me, for the first time in the world, when it didn't even count (which I agree with, btw, share the love!). I will eagerly await your email, since I haven't seen it yet.

    Yay, congrats to the winners, who made gorgeous quilts. Thank you MS for introducing us to Anne's BH block (and thanks to Anne), and giving us a push to do more than just "bookmark" it for future use. Now I just have to finish…..

    Congrats to the winners! It was such fun seeing the quilts come together. But I think we all won with such a great block from Anne & Molli's ever sparkly QAL hosting. Thanks to both of you!

  20. Thanks Molli for a fantastic quilt a long and all your encouragement! I ran out of steam on mine (plus I had a vacation where I couldn't sew) but I promise to add the pictures to the flickr group once I have it sashed and quilted.
