Supernova Friendship Block Swap winners!

At long last, Stephanie and I can announce the winners of the prize package for our Supernova Friendship Block Swap! Congrats to Kris Jarchow, who blogs at Sew Sunshine, and Jen Van Dyke, who blogs at Jennifer Under the Juniper Tree. Take a look at their beautiful quilts. Here’s Kris’ version:

Here’s Jen’s:

jen-supernova2 Lee Heinrich, who blogs at Freshly Pieced, is the Supernova block designer and the judge for our contest. Here’s what she had to say:

“I love their scrappy saturated color scheme, and the back of Jen’s quilt is another quilt unto itself! : ) It was a tough choice – I also loved the hand-quilting on Ashlee Schnell’s and Kate Yates’ quilts. I also thought the quilting on Maya Toscani’s and Cathy Ledbetter’s pair of quilts was amazing! Everybody did a great job, and I can’t thank them all enough for participating! It’s been so much fun seeing so many Supernova blocks these past few months.”

It’s really amazing to think of what started as a simple email exchange between Stephanie and myself has turned into some lovely friendships for so many of our participants. Several of you have sent us incredibly touching emails about the relationships you formed, and Stephanie and I couldn’t be more pleased.

Kris and Jen will each receive a prize package (thanks to Stephanie for taking care of the mailing) including a signed copy of the book, Vintage Quilt Revival, by Katie Clark Blakesely, Lee Heinrich and Faith Jones; a gift certificate to Green Fairy Quilts and some goodies from QuiltCon!

Kris and Jen aren’t the only ones to get a prize, though. When I was in Austin for QuiltCon last month, I got to meet and stay with Stephanie in person. It was a great time and a lovely way to be able to deepen our friendship. And look, she even had another Supernova block for me:

    1. They are indeed beautiful, and there are still some being finished out there – including mine and Stephanie’s! I’m not sure if you’re missing my posts. I kind of lost my blogging/sewing mojo earlier this year and haven’t posted for quite awhile, but I’m getting back to it and should have something to share in the next few weeks. Thanks so much for hanging in there with me. 🙂
