October FQ Challenge & Annual Winner

Hard to believe a whole year of our Fat Quarter Challenge has come to an end with the October drawing.  During October I received 3 beautiful quilts!  And one of those quilters was randomly drawn for the $100 annual prize.  More about that shortly.  Our October random prize winner was a repeat winner, Donna Dellacamera of Unionville, CT.  She submitted her quilt in April.  Donna will receive a $25 gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop.  We can’t thank them enough for sponsoring our monthly prizes for the past four years and they have agreed to do it again for next year.  Please take a look at their site.

Our 3 beautiful quilts received this month are from Jackie Fitzgerald (New Braunsfels, TX), Jane Reardon (Narragansett, RI) and Susan Seward (Superior, CO).

Our $100 cash prize winner for the year was randomly chosen from all the fat quarter challenge participants during the past year.  That winner happened to be Susan Seward who turned in her quilt this past month.  Congratulations!!

We will be starting a new year for the Fat Quarter Challenge.  If you are in Houston, this week, you can pick up a fat quarter at our booth.  Otherwise, you can supply your own fat quarter and get more information on the right hand side of our blog (under pages) about the challenge.  It’s been a fun year.  Sherree Newhouse, our Regional Coordinator from the Southwest will be coordinating next year’s fat quarter challenge.

Cheers, Tina

    Did FQ quilts get combined with various drives to go to Navajo, Syria, or some other place? I am just wondering where they end up.

    Carol, the fat quarter quilts can go to any number of initiatives. It just depends which RC has the quilt at the time for a various incentive.
