The winner of my “Art Quilts of the Midwest, Magic Happens” giveaway is: Heidi Worthington, who said:
“My favorite quilters are my friend Angela and my friend Dixie. Several years ago, they started a quilting group at our church. At the time, I had never sewn on a machine before. Angela convinced my to try quilting. I was very skeptical. I completed my first quilt in about 5 months. Angela assured our group of beginning sewers it would be easy. It was an Irish chain. I designed the next quilt that I made with both Angela’s and Dixie’s help. The Upper Room Quilters still get together every week in Dixie’s sewing studio.”
And the original post for the GIVEAWAY was (thank you to the 27 women who shared their favorite quilt story!):
