The Two Winners from the Dare to Dresden Blog Hop!!

I want to thank all of you that stopped by during the blog hop to see my very first try at a Dresden Plate and for all the wonderful comments that you left and especially for the time you all took to offer suggestions for quilting.

So, now it is time to announce the first winner and that winner, chosen by Mr. Randon Generator, is ~

Drum roll please ~

And Vicki T is #18!!  Vicki does not have a blog, so I can't send you over to visit her but this is what she said:

"What a beautiful Dresden. I have often looked at Kaffe fabrics but haven't bought any of them yet. I think maybe I need to pick some up after seeing this. Your closeup of the stitching is awseome. Great job. I'd love to be able to stitch that well."

Shhhhhhhhhh, don't tell Vicki that the stitching around the blades was done by machine!!

The second winner is my choice with regard to how to quilt this gigantic Dresden Plate.  So many of you suggested an echo design and that is what I have decided to do, but the person I chose to win the second gift went over & above and actually copied the picture of the quilt that hung on my Armoire, drew out how she would quilt it if it was on her machine, scanned the picture with her design on it and emailed it to me!!  Wow, I was totally impressed with all she went through and so, Thearica over at Pigtales and Quilts, you are also a winner!!

If you will both send me an email with your snail mail I will get your fun gifts off to you!

Again, my most sincere gratitude to all of you and a big hug for all of my darling "followers" both old and new!!  You make this blogging stuff soooooo much fun!!

Ooh I am so sorry for not responding to you sooner. I've had some medical problems since late last week that took me to the ER for 8 hrs Friday where I had SUCH FUN with some minor surgery that night and then another 4 hrs on Sunday and to a surgeon yesterday for his opinion.
Anyway, I just now am going through the blogs from the hop and will be emailing you in just a few minutes. Thank you so much. This brightened my day/week.
