The Valentine's Basket winner is Andrea Beutel from Clayton, CA and here is what she had to say:
"Wow, I can't believe it! This is so cool. I rarely win anything, so this is a real treat. Thank you so much! Love your website and books (I have several and have actually made and finished a couple of your quilts!) I'm new to the world of blogging, and really enjoy all of the creative quilters out there.
I have been dabbling at quilting for a long time, and usually try to do quick projects. However, now that my kids are (pretty much) grown, I have more time and am doing some more challenging things again. I generally have several projects (UFO's?) going at a time and sometimes I actually finish one! I do most everything by machine, but I just spent the weekend at Lake Tahoe with my SIL who hand quilts, and now I'm thinking I need some handwork to take with me when I can't take my machine. She looked so relaxed surrounded by the beautiful quilt that she was working on. She had it hooped on her lap and it just fell down around her. Makes me think I need to take up hand applique or maybe learn to hand quilt.Again, thank you so much!"
