Inger, you are the winner of Elizabeth's book and fabrics. Please email me with your contact information. If I don't hear from you in 24 hours I'll draw another number.
Inger said, "I'm especially fond of a quilt that has been in my family for a few generations. As a teenager I got ink all over it and not knowing the value of the quilt, its history and sentimental value, or how to clean it, I threw it out. A few years later I was at a neighbor's apartment and saw it in her living room and shared my story. She was very kind and gave it back to me, and the best part is that she had gotten the ink stain out."
Thanks for sharing the stories of your quilts. Proves to me once again that quilts are more than a front and back with something in between!

Congrats to Inger. That is an amazing story of good quilt karma. I hope it continues!

Thanks! I'm really fortunate on both counts, we still have the quilt today thanks to my neighbor back then and this is the first time I've ever won a giveaway thanks to Jacquie! I'm still pretty new to quilting and have been putting off sandwiching and binding two quilts, so I'll be very happy to have Elizabeth's step-by-step instructions with me at the sewing machine.
