HAPPY MONDAY BEACH GREETINGS - With margarita in-hand and the kiddos off to bed, after a VERY eventful day, it is time to draw the winners for my July Birthday Giveaway! The time is here, yay!

First, I'd like to thank everyone for passing the word and joining in on this giveaway. Blogging has opened up an unimaginable quilting "know-how" resource and network of wonderful new friends to stay in touch with! I truly enjoy visiting each and every one of your creative blogs. I can spend hours admiring all the great projects and photos you post! So, a BIG thanks to you all. I am still trying to get through all the emails and comments and would love to respond to everyone. If I haven't spoken to you yet, please stay tuned!

Second, thanks for all the birthday wishes! I appreciate all the love sent my way!

Now, lets get down to business. I received a total of 653 entries into the drawing. I am going to draw a total of 9 names. That's right, I said 9!! I will draw 4 names today for the original 4 prizes for this giveaway. Over the next 5 days, I will select another name each day from the remaining entries. To those winners I will send a surprise package of goodies from my shop and sewing stash. It could be anything! How good is that?

Here goes...

The winner of PRIZE #1: A set of six (6) patriotic theme fat quarters is...
