We wish to thank all of the creative quilters who took the time to make the 15 pick up truck quilt blocks. They will be assembled into a quilt that our local CASA can auction at their 2018 fund raiser. We also wish to thank everyone who donated their voting money for their favorite trucks. One Saturday evening the trucks took a run to the local Elks Club so non-quilters could vote. The blocks agreed that a great time was had by all. The voting money totaled $174.14 and will be given to the local Elks Lodge to help defray the costs of monthly veterans' breakfasts plus dinner and dances for people with special needs.
The winner of the $30 Sew Always gift certificate is....Dianna Ridge!!! Her block (red truck labeled #2 below) was one of the first blocks to be entered, and viewers loved adding those pennies to her voting pig. Congratulations, Dianna.
Since voting was very close between the first place winner and the second place block, the decision was made to also award the second place winner with a $20 Sew Always gift certificate. The winner is....Lynn Eggers!!! Her blue truck block (labeled #10 below) received many laughs as well as votes. Congratulations, Lynn.
