Padsworth Thanks You and I Thank You!

Wow! That was exciting! Being part of the SewMamaSew Giveaway Day for the very first time was awesome! Padsworth was beside his little green self with glee as we received 131 comments, and we now have 165 followers! Thanks so much to all of you! We will try to make sure that you have "ribbeting" posts to read, and who knows? Maybe some more giveaways!

We are hoping that many of you will come back to OleFrogEyes and subscribe! It's a great way to have a design wall for your quilting, see others' progress, and advertise your own quilts on your blog with our badge!

Now, what you are really interested in, is WHO is our winner, right? Well, ribbet, ribbet! We let Mr. Random pick, and he chose #35, Stephanie Granite! (Sorry, I wrote down the number Mr. Random gave me, and clicked away from the page before I copied the graphic over here! You'll have to trust me!)
Stephanie just finished up her masters degree, so she will have more time for quilting!! Check out her blog and leave her some comment love; she has a really pretty blog.

Stephanie, please reply to my email...and get me your mailing information, so these FQs and book can make their way to you! And we'll get you set up for your one month trial subscription to OleFrogEyes, too!

Padsworth was so struck by some of the comments that expressed interest in subscribing to his design wall gallery, that he asked me to pick one more winner! He really is a loveable little guy, ya know? Sorry, we don't have any more FQs to send out, but we WILL offer one more one-month trial to ....... Sunni@LoveAffairWithMyBrother!!!! (I wonder if her Brother (machine) came back from the sewing machine hospital OK?)  Stop by her blog, too, and congratulate her. Sunni, I will email you with the information so that you can start putting up blocks on your very own design wall!

Padsworth and I are looking forward to seeing these ladies make additions to our gallery at OleFrogEyes, and we'd love to see what Stephanie makes from those thirties' prints, too!

Thanks again to SewMamaSew, and all of our new followers! You've made our day!

Here is what we are giving away at LilyPadQuilting:

There are TEN lovely fat quarters there.....nine cute thirties prints, and one white blender to help with creating your next project! Also included is the book, "Fat Quarter Fun" by Karen Snyder. 
That's not all! Our lucky winner will also receive a FREE thirty day subscription to our companion web site, OleFrogEyes Virtual Design Wall! Click here to check out the site and see the quilts in progress there!
