Hurray for Mary Claire

Good evening! Today I'm squeezing in one more post to announce the winner of our Shelburne Falls Contest.  It was a hard choice, for reals, but we do have a winner...

cathrineholm-ish towel

Miss Mary Claire of Splendor Falls!  Congrats to Mary Claire.  I love that Mary Claire made this tea towel for a friend, and look what the world gave back to her!  I'm so glad that you'll have plenty to make something in Shelburne Falls for yourself.  Enjoy!

A big thanks to Fabricworm for sponsoring our fun with a lovely gift set of fabrics.  Fabricworm is a beautiful store in Paso Robles, CA.  They've been selling online for quite some time, putting up creative custom bundles and an impressive collection of cool organic fabricsNew Arrivals include Anna Maria Horner's just-released linen Field Study fabrics and Sarah Watson's Indian Summer, which I could totally see on Liam's bed. 

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 Shelburne Falls project or joined in by voting, thanks for being part of this community!


  1. Hurray! I liked this one most.

  2. I'm super humbled (and excited), thank you! Rachel, you deserve some of the credit for inspiring me with the reverse applique and Scandinavian elements. =)

  3. Congratulations, Mary Claire! I love your tea towel--such gorgeous handstitching. Rachel, thank you for holding these contests (and sewalongs, and scrap bust a thons, and...). The community you work hard to foster here really makes your blog a great place to be.

    1. Thanks so much! That is absolutely a delight to hear and means quite a lot to me.

  4. Congratulations, Mary Claire! Love the hand stitching.

  5. I loved following the contest even though I didn't enter, the tea towel is adorable. Congratulations on your new Quilty column, Rachel!
