And the Winner is.....

I picked a winner yesterday after a few false starts. The first two people I picked had no contact details, so I had to redraw. I wanted to make the draw before I went to work, but because of these false starts I ran out of time! Anyway as soon as I got home it all went to plan. A lot of people asked me how I was going to do the draw. I went to this Random Number website and let it do it for me. I had 543 comments and 101 followers so I added these together and went from there. 

So the winner is kcrock. I emailed her last night and she quickly emailed back saying 'Wow I can't believe it. I never win anything. Thanks so much.' So who is kcrock? She is Claire Vivash of Auckland. Congratulations Claire.

Claire has two blogs Kazart & The Garden Pixie so check them out. Her cats test her quilts just like mine does! I got another email this morning which said 'I thought I had dreamed it last night so pleased to see it is real.' I know how she feels. I was like that when EQ emailed me. When I rang a friend to share the news, I think my friend thought someone had died, as I was in so much shock! 

This competition has been a blast! It seems like nearly every quilter interested in EQ7 has visited my blog over the last few weeks. I would like to say a Big Thank You to everyone who visited, made comments and became followers.

From the first post on 26 April saying EQ7 was coming till the contest closed on 19 May, I had 4081 visits to the blog! 

It was amazing to see people from all over the world coming to have a look at my little blog. I had visitors from USA, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Taiwan, Netherlands, Hungary, Norway, Costa Rica, Romania, South Africa, New Zealand (of course), and heaps more. I hope you liked what you saw and will visit again.

I wish you all could have been winners, sorry. But if you want to get EQ7 check out  The Electric Quilt Company because EQ7 is on special till 31 May, and the savings are really incredible.

Lastly thank you to The Electric Quilt Company for being so generous.
