Now to the give-away for the fabric selection process. I decided to draw two winners:

  1. One for those that linked-up (who wins the 1/2 yard bundle)
  2. For those that did post their photo on flickr – the winner will get a scrap bundle in a color of their choice.

Link-up Winner which was randomly chosen by random.org is #2: Joanna @ Riddle and Whimsy, who has pulled her collection of Christmas fabrics for the Gypsy Wife Quilt along.
