Thank you all for your nice comments about Jill's beautiful blocks.  I've come up with a plan and I will share it soon.

Thanks for joining in the giveaway.  Rich pulled the winners.

#1 - Halloween 4-patch Posie
What a special UFO to have received. It is beautiful too. What a great way to bless your friend by taking her work to a finish when she can't.
Thanks for a chance to win a great giveaway. I choose #5! I also really like #1.
Have a great day!

#2 -  Jack 'O Lantern
I have made that block of Jill's before and it wasn't easy! lol I have blocks and a diagram of the block as well, but had no idea what the "plan" was.
I'd love to win something. In order, 5, 4 and 2. Enjoy the show!

#3 - Sunbonnet Sue
Would love #1 or #3. You're always thinking of something wonderful to do!

On Saturday I volunteered at a town event:  Pouches on Parade.  It was a fundraiser for our library.  Here is our Ring Master.

coco won a Blue Ribbon for tallest Chocolate Lab.  The other categories were longest ears, shortest tail, you get the idea.  It is all just for fun.

After judging (which was measuring, not judging)  I was able to walk her in the Chocolate Labs parade.  There were 4 in her category.   Doesn't she look happy and proud or is that me?

Congratulations to the UFO winners - please email me your home address at and I'll get them in the mail this week -

Back to working on finishing my nine patches for the swap.
Happy Sewing~


  1. Coco looks very happy, what a fun parade!
    Congrats to your winners.

  2. This is such a fun fundraiser idea. Oh I have to share this with a few friends who are always looking for ways to raise some money for girls hockey.
    Congrats to all the winners.

  3. Congratulations to all the winners. I always knew Coco was a blue ribbon dog. I love the photo of the two of you. Have you ever seen that movie Best in Show, it's so funny!!

  4. cute table runner. congrats to all the winners.

  5. Love that table runner - you're always pulling completed quilts out of nowhere!
    Congrats to the winners...coco included!

  6. What fun give aways and a fun day at the pooch parade. Both you and Coco look proud as punch.

  7. Blue is an excellent color on Coco. Considering her quilt sense, she deserves the ribbon for smartest dog too. The runner is perfect for this time of year.

  8. Thank you Barb for the win! I couldn't be more thrilled.

    Congrats to XCoco! Looks like a fun day.

  9. Sweet apple runner, and beautiful quilt on the wall. Lucky winners--some really fun things you gave away.

  10. Oh wow! I read past my name and then had to go check. Me? Really? How fun to be in on this giveaway.:) Sounds like a fun day for you and Coco both!

  11. I'm beyond excited about the Sunbonnet blocks. Wonderful of you to have others share in Jill's legacy. I hope I do them justice. What a special person Jill was and you are too, Barb.

  12. Congrats to all the winners.
    Coco does look proud, and so do you. ;) Looks like a fun event.

  13. I know I commented on this post from my ipad. It's not here and now I'm wondering where exactly it did go? Hmm. Anyway, Coco sure looks pleased and I'm pleased for both of you! Congratulations!

  14. Congrats to Coco! I really think that Coco would like to come and live with Boomer (our black lab).
