OMGosh! I totally spaced picking and posting a winner yesterday. Ugh, it was a crazy day. But LATE is always better than never, right!?

I am so giddy about this winner. I randomly picked a post and GENE BLACK is the winner. He said:

"I signed up days ago. I am loving that Simple abundance jelly roll. I think the timing on this quilt along will be perfect for me to finish a top with no problems. I am sure I have some fabric that will go just perfect with the jelly roll -if I win it. Color me red and aqua for excited!"

So I am just loving this for 2 reasons:
He likes red and aqua- just like me! (and the rest of the quilting world, I'm afraid)
and he's a HE! Now who doesn't love a man that quilts!?

Well Gene, send me an email ASAP with your address so I can get this JR in the mail to you!

On a side note- I'm taking a short break. I'll be going under the knife on tues. so it may be a little bit before you hear from me. I'm thinking of starting nother Grandma's Flower Garden for my hospital stay. I just don't think I can be away from fabric for that long! See you soon.
