I am highlighting five additional sponsors today...
Jan from Quilting Among the Grooves has been quilting along with me since the first mystery quilt! Last year, he gave any one of the most sought after prizes, custom longarm quilting of the mystery quilt (or an equivalent size quilt) and we are lucky enough that he has offered the prize again this year.
Mel B. was the winner last year you can see the fabulous job Jan did with the quilting on an already beautifully pieced top by Mel B. (she decided to have Jan quilt this lap quilt because she had already quilted her mystery quilt). You can read more about her quilt here and see more of Jan's work on his blog.
Winner provides the finished quilt top, backing and batting and shipping costs to Quilting Among the Groves. Quilting Among the Groves provides email or phone and photo consultation with semi-densely quilted all-over design, thread, and return shipping. (Due to shipping costs, this prize is limited to the US only).
Lara from Buzz in Bumble is donating a copy of her new book, Crafted Applique. The book is totally awesome, teaching a new way of applique that has the speed and ease of raw edge applique without any of the fraying. My of my fellow guild members I showed the book to summed it up best when she said, "This is a game changer".
Terri Ann of Mini Barn Quilts is donating 2 Mini Barn Quilt Kits, 1 Mod Podge and brush kit, a mini easel and a mini charm bundle, everything you need to make your own mini barn quilt! The kits are so much fun and easy to assemble. I made one with my son and the hardest part about the kit was picking out the fabrics!
Stephanie of Late Night Quilt and the Quilter's Planner is donating a 2017 Quilter's Planner for one lucky reader. I use my 2016 version all of the time, it is so great for keeping my professional, personal, and quilting lives organized and inspired.
Oliso, makers of the wonderful Smart Iron (the iron sits on little feet above the fabric and lowers with the simple touch of your hand), is donating one ironing board cover as a prize. This prize is for US mailing addresses only.
