a Penny Patch for Meg

Good morning! Today I'm blogging bright and early to announce the winner of our Nursery Versery contest.  It was a hard choice and a close call, for reals, but we do have a winner...


Miss Meg of Lilybird Stitches!  Congrats to Meg.  I'm so glad that you'll now get to tackle a Nursery Vesery quilt for baby Lily's crib.  How perfect is that?  May Lily's dreams be full of sweet mice families and pretty penny patches.  Enjoy!

A big thanks to Sew Modern for sponsoring our fun with a lovely gift set of fabrics.  Sew Modern is a hip fabric and sewing haven in Los Angeles featuring the latest designer fabricsclasses for kids & adults, and a long arm quilting machine available for rent!  They've just received Sarah Jane's new Out to Sea collection, as well as new Echino, Momo, and Chicopee.

In a perfect world, everyone would win a prize.  Alas.  But I do thank you all most sincerely for joining in on our contest and being such good sports.  I know when it gets down to it, we're not really here for the prizes, but instead to nurture that creative spark and share its pleasure with others.  So whether you made a Nursery Versery project or joined in by voting, thanks for being part of this community!

And speaking of that creative spark, here's an image currently moving me.  Let's see what happens next...
