Celestisl Star QAL: Winners!

Well, my blog posts are turning into evening posts, and I apologize. I also hope that no one minds if they somewhat continue to be late in the day. With summer, and children, and blogging, and quilting, and life, and today lots of sick people at home (including myself) my "get ahead" time with the QAL posts seems to be quite limited. I made the decision before starting the QAL that I was not going to let myself get stressed out. I was going to enjoy every minute of it, and just have fun!! So far it's been exactly that, and I LOVE it!! :D Thank you all so much for your participation and supportive words! You're awesome! I also love seeing all of your creativity and beautiful work! {mwah!} ;) So now that you know my goal, and hopefully know what to expect as we continue, I hope things will continue to keep getting better as we start making our blocks tomorrow! :) And most of all, I hope you are having fun too! But until then....

Let's announce some winners!!

First I want to say a huge Thank You to Pink Castle Fabrics! and this first prize of the QAL. If you missed their introduction post from last week, be sure to read it so you can find out about all the fun events they have going on. :)

I used Random.org to pick the winners. From the blog link up, the winner is Iris of CrazyDutchBirdQuilts. Congrats!

The winner from the Instagram hashtag #CelestialStarDesign is Bria, @thegoodsmeller. Congrats!

They both won this beautiful fat eight bundle of fabrics. I love these prints!

Please send me an email with your addresses so we can get your prize sent to you. :)
