Winners of Giveaway

First, I'd like to thank everyone for commenting.  I've discovered some great new blogs from some amazing quilters.  Everyone provided some great quilting tips.  I'll post a bunch of them coming up.

Now for what you're all waiting for.  The winners.

The winner of the first fat quarter bundle is: Peaceful Piecer who said, "I guess leader enders are my best tip .... once I got the hang of it I use this all the time."

The winner of the second fat quarter bundle is: MoeWest who said, "This fabulous tip comes from Lois Hallock, author of “Creating Your Perfect Quilting Space”.
To get the best folded stash and maximize the space available on a shelf for your fabric, use an 8 1/2" wide acrylic ruler to fold fabrics that are half-a-yard and larger. When you wrap your fabric around the width of the ruler and then fold the piece in half, the size of your folded fabric will be the same width as a fabric bolt; which will allow you to see more of the print when you look at it on the shelf. Magically, the piece is also flatter so you can stack more fabrics than with any other folding method.
For fat quarters and quarter-yard pieces, use a 4 1/2" wide acrylic ruler to wrap the fabric around, again folding the wrapped fabric in half."

And finally, the winner of the layer cake is: Lisa who said, "So many good tips have already been given! I would say remembering to change your needle and using a good machine quilting needle and a nice smooth thin thread like Aurifil 50 wt. to achieve accurate 1/4" seams!"

Congrats to all of the winners.  Please email me your mailing address so that I can send out your prizes.  Email me at jensorenson05 at gmail dot com.
