Lucky #7

Everybody shared wonderful comments with regards to selling quilts, value, cost, time, market place, economy and the list goes on. Thank you so much for taking the time and giving your views and opinions on the subject. There were emails also sent separate from the blog post asking about quilts I had for sale! Even though I'm a longarm quilter and take in client quilts it is good to know there is another avenue for me to take if I choose. But for now I simply enjoy making and giving as gifts to those who truly appreciate the value of a quilt.

In my previous post I asked about the Schnibbles addiction and also received some wonderful comments to include those who still don't know about Schnibbles. I did my best to explain of course. I call Schnibbles my "instant gratification" quilts. A no-reply blogger left a comment that put it this way: "What I love most about them is I can step out of my fabric comfort zone and try some different fabrics without a huge commitment. Plus, they are just so dang fun!" I couldn't agree more.

Now what you are really here for is to see who the lucky winner is of the quilt valued at an easy $150. (hee!!) Lucky #7 of Tins and Treasures.

Oh, My Goodness, I can't believe my eyes. I have always been in awe of Mary's Quilts and her long arm machine. This will hold a special place in my heart.

Mary, thank you so very much for your generous gift. It is coming to me at a somewhat difficult time...cleaning out my mom's apartment and making her move to the assisted living facility final. This quilt will be my reminder of all that is warm and cozy.

You are a special blog friend. Take care ~Natalie

Congrats to the lucky winner!
I am cutting out a Schnibble quilt this afternoon using Civil War fabrics. You are so right...Schnibbles are instant gratification in the quilting world, I think I have plenty of bed-size quilts on the shelf. These are much more satisfying right now.

Oh my gosh, CONGRATULATIONS to the lucky winner. How excited you must be !!! Mary, I apologize, I missed the giveaway post, my gosh...I visited on the 14th and the 16th but missed the 15th all together because life got in the way of checking my regular blogs. I have to tell you though...there is a quilt shop in my area that sells quilts that they have had on display when they change them out for new ones and they sell quilts about that size for anywhere from $200 to $450, depending on amount of work that went into it and the type of quilting done on it. I imagine your Schnibble would have been in the $250 to $300 range at their shop. I also have to tell you that your quilting is much, much more beautiful that any I have seen come out of there. Your quilting skills are exceeded only by your kind, caring and generous nature. Big Hugs coming out to you.

Love that Schnibbles quilt - so cute! Hey Mary - can you check to see if maybe you accidently added me to your blocked e-mail list - all 3 of my e-mails came back as "refused"! Will try again to send an e-mail to ya.
