Raffle Winner

I'm sure you must be wondering what is taking so long!  Me TOO!

I truly had no idea how much this whole fundraiser would test my organizational skills! 

We had close to 1,000 entries.  Here's what that looks like when I dumped the bucket out on my bed.

As I write this the total amount raised is $8,255!!!! 

YOU ROCK!  Not only did we reach the goal of $7,000--You blew it out of the water (bad pun, but I couldn't resist!)

So many people helped with this effort and thankfully umpteen zillion of you donated!!  Praise God!

Here are some of the blogs that helped spread the word:

Karen Griska of Selvage Blog

Sarah Craig of Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Quilting Babcia of Amity Quilter

Lori of Humble Quilts

Carol of Giraffe Dreams

Jessi of Rusty Nail Farm and ImakeUglyBags

Stacey of StasaLynn

Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville

Mary of The Curious Quilter

Linne of A Random Harvest

I'm sure I'm forgetting some of you.  I apologize and blame "raffle brain". 

So....I guess you're wondering about the winner?
