    I Can't Believe I WON!!

    At nearly 78 I NEVER won anything in my life. About a month ago I bought some raffle tickets. They had the drawing today & I just got a phone call saying I WON THE QUILT! I was so shocked, I was almost speechless. I’m still stunned & so thrilled.

    It is a king size quilt made of 24 blocks of wildflowers HAND PAINTED by the Alamo Decorative Artists of San Antonio.

    The Alamo Decorative Artists (San Antonio, Texas) painted 24 blocks for a king sized raffle quilt to support their charity work. Gail Wilson designed and pieced the center & the sashing/borders etc. The arrangement of the blocks and the center color 'rays' are based on the traditional color wheel.

    They said they will ship it to me next week & I can hardly wait to see it.

    Have a blessed week end.

    Congratulations! I can understand you being speechless. I took my BFF to a quilt show where she won the door prize quilt. She was so happy and excited.

    Lucky you! That is a fantastic prize.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    That is beautiful! What a WIN! Congratulations, you go girl! Would love to have a pattern for that on that I could applique'. Wonder if one's available somewhere?

    Thanks Sunflower - Probably display it - I live alone & have just a reg. double bed so sure couldn't use it on that.

    I'll be moving after the 1st of the year to northern TX & have some nice oak wall shelves/hangers for quilts, so may display it on one of those. My new home is in the country (full of wildflowers in season) & I decorate "country" style, so it should fit right in & feel at home.
