We have a WINNER!!!!!!

The giveaway for the Turtle Trails Quilt Pattern and 4 batik fat quarters ended at Midnight last night...and today is the day to announce the WINNER!!!! So Exciting!!

I just want to take this moment to say THANK YOU to everyone who entered and everyone who is a new or old follower of my blog!  There were a total of 80 entries!!  I am so excited to meet you all and to have heard a little about who you would make this quilt for and your love or connection to turtles!  There were so many wonderful comments!  I look forward to getting to know you all more in the future!

I did try to respond to each of you by email but of course there are many no-reply bloggers that I could not contact.  If you did not get a response by email when you commented, you may want to check your settings to make sure that your email is visible on your profile or you will want to remember, in the future, to leave your email address in the comments when you enter a giveaway.  

I used to choose the winner...

I found it sad that I had to draw 7 times before I found a winner that was both a follower and had an email address to contact them with.

Please, Please, remember to include your email address in future contests or change your profile settings to show your email address!

But, I am so excited for the person who won!!!!!


Drum Roll please!!!!!......



The Winner is # 45: Emily!!!

"I would make it for my mom. She has a special connection with sea turtles and my sister who passed away. She would absolutely LOVE this quilt! It would mean so much to both of us! And she is in Hawaii right now and I have her scouting out batik FQs for me ;) (I'm a follower through GFC)"

Congratulations Emily!!! 

Thank you so much for following my blog and entering my giveaway!  I am very sorry to hear about your sister but I am also very excited that you have won my giveaway and that you and your mom can now enjoy this Turtle Trails Quilt Pattern and Batik fabrics!  I hope you love it!  I will be emailing you shortly to get your mailing address.
