My mom just called - she was crying....

My mom (Kathleen) works full time in a Dr.'s office. She just called me from work and she was crying. It actually made me start to cry. Then she whispered..... I WON! Oh my gosh! This is amazing. Everyone who participated in the contest made some AMAZING quilts and for her to win this contest means more than you can imagine to her. 
For the Birds was her final entry.

Thank you so much to everyone who supported her.  She really needs to start her own blog so she can thank each and everyone of you. 

McCalls Quilting is having a celebration party. You can win some amazing prizes too! Head over to their site to enter to win!!

  44. Oh, I'm so tickled for her !

    One day about a week ago, you posted another thing about the contest and explained the whole thing. I was impressed with what it took to get that far, so I followed your link, and automatically voted for her on the page that the link brought up. Then I thought, "well, Dolly, you ought to atleast look at the other quilts and see if you DO like this one best."
    Well, let me tell you, hers was my favorite, hands down !
    So every day that I thought of it since then, I have followed your link and voted for her again.

    She truly deserves this win ! (And you were a very good campaign manager !)
