And the Winner of the Fat Quarter Challenge IS…..
This was the first year we held our Fat Quarter Challenge, where we provided a Fat Quarter and a block pattern, and those who entered the challenge added their own fabrics, supplies and talents and created many beautiful quilts for us. We had 79 entrants, most from Texas where we kicked off the challenge, and other entrants live across the United States, from California to Florida and New York. We even had entrants from Canada and Norway. Our final tally was 51 completed quilts, all beautiful and ready to be wrapped around a child. The deadline for inclusion in our drawing was September 15th, which gave the earliest entrants almost a year to complete their quilts.
Our Regional Coordinators Jodi Humphrey and Ann Drake were the coordinators of the Fat Quarter Challenge, with Jodi handling the early months, and Ann handling the final months.
This week Ann got together with her grandson, Jonah, who is four years old. They placed the names of all the entrants who had submitted quilts into the jar, and Jonah shook it quite vigorously! The results are below….
And the winner is…..
Congratulations to our winner Renee Coakley of Kingland, Georgia! Renee will be receiving a check for $100 from Quilts Beyond Borders as her prize in this drawing. Her quilt is on its way to Romania to be given to a child in an orphanage there.
Great thanks to all of the Fat Quarter Challenge participants. The quilts we received were absolutely beautiful, and I know the children who receive them will treasure them!
I’d also like to express our appreciation to Jodi and Ann for their work coordinating this challenge, and to Karen Vander Stoep for conceiving this great idea and putting all the building blocks and supplies in place to execute it. And a special thank you to Jonah for being the star of our drawing! Good job!
