Just Judie Winners!!

Our Marcus Fabrics home office is all a buzz with excitement over the Just Judie campaign.  The 25 quilt finalists were chosen a few weeks ago, and the Grand Prize winner was announced.  

The winning quilt, pictured above, took the Grand Prize, and it is grand!  Lisa Even, of Barrington, IL, made this quilt....she's a fellow Land of Lincoln girl like me!  And...guess what?
The shop that sponsored Lisa is my favorite local quilt shop, The Quilt Merchant in Winfield, IL!!
Yay!   Congratulations, Lisa!!  Beautiful!!

Treat yourself to some spectacular eye candy by visiting the Marcus Fabrics Blog to see all 25 finalist quilts.  Which quilts would get your vote?  I have my favorites!!

I make it my policy to stay far away from talking about politics on my blog, but today I'm making an little exception.  I was surprised to find an email from Starbucks in my inbox this morning asking to sign a petition to send a message to our representatives in Washington, D.C. to start talking.  Hhmmm....sounded good to me.  It's done in a very respectful way and at least I feel like I was doing something other than shaking my head at the TV.  What do I have to loose.  

Click here to visit the website to read about this petition.  And...in the words of Forrest Gump (my personal hero)..."that's all I have to say about that."

On another note....for those of you who emailed me asking when American Gothic Fat Quarter bundles would be back in stock.....they're here!!  Click here to order.


  1. Good for Starbucks!! And good for you for doing something!!

  2. Gorgeous! The Grand Prize Winner is awesome! Another favorite is the one from Denise Isherwood of CT! Such talent!

    I hope Starbuck's works better for our reps than Dunkin' does for Eli Manning... lol! And that's all I have to say about that! ;-)
