Texas QAL - Where Everyone is a Winner!!

Thank you to all the ladies who participated in the Texas Roadtrip QAL! All of the quilts were phenomenal, and I can't say enough about how happy seeing them has made me. Every one was so unique and beautiful, and I really wish that they all belonged to me!! (Wouldn't it be great if we could do a Texas quilt swap, but everyone just had to send theirs to me--to keep for myself! But I'll keep that on the back burner for now:) 

If you've been working on a Texas quilt, but didn't get it made in time, you can always still post on instagram with the hashtag #texasroadtripqal so we can still admire your work. If you need any of the instructions you can click the Texas button on the right and it will take you to everything you need. 

And now for the winners. So Melissa and I decided that everyone is a winner! We drew names out of the hat for the sponsor prizes, but we still have SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE, so TO ALL THE LADIES WHO LINKED UP--SEND US YOUR ADDRESS!! We just couldn't stand that not everyone was going to get something:)

Here is what the hat chose for the sponsor prizes:

An Aggie Bug wins and Aurifil set and look at her quilt--isn't that background amazing!!!

Amanda at What the Bobbin also wins and Aurifil set and here is her awesome low volume quilt--
