I won the Ugly Quilt Contest!!!!

A few weeks ago I entered the Quilting Bloggers Ugly Quilt Contest with my first quilt that I made for my daughter (which ended up a disaster)! I found out last night that I won this beautiful trapunto quilt from Geta Grama!!!! I am so excited as I have admired her work for a long time and will treasure owning this quilt. I want to try her technique of trapunto soon, as she is selling her pattern now. Thanks Geta for donating this prize and thanks to Michele of Quilting Gallery for hosting this contest!

Thanks to one and all that voted for me, I appreciate it. I will be drawing the names for the bag giveaway tomorrow, so you can still enter.
