And the winner is... ME

I have been officially crowned "The Queen" of the Death by Quilting Challenge. You can read about it here on the official site. It came down to the last two and I managed to take the final "shot" and won. It was a fun challenge and I can't wait for the next one.
The coolest part is the package that the amazingly talented Pat Sloan sent me. The coolest book, autographed by her. I'm not sure how many of you know this about me but I LOVE books autographed by their authors and have quite a few in my collection.
I also got some beautiful pieces of her newest line of fabrics, Arabella. They are beautiful! She also sent me an adorable "Tinkerbell" pez dispenser. Does she know me or what?
My absolute favorite thing she sent, though was a quilt block made by the master herself. It even has an appliqued crown that says "Queen of Death by Quilting" and also signed by Pat. It also had a little crown charm attached. Not sure how I will finish this up but it will definitely have a place of honor in my sewing room.
Thanks so much to Pat and all the other agents who participated. It's been wonderful and I am one happy camper!
