She blogged about it here on her blog. Heather mailed me her scrappy quilt top and backing fabric. I asked her to choose what overall quilting, batting, and thread color she would like for her prize. Heather chose overall swirls, 100% cotton batting, and a lite colored thread - my choice.
Here's how I choose the thread color. I have about 150 colors of quilting thread. First, I pull a few cones off the rack and lay them on the quilt.
Then I lay out the colors by family and unwind some of the thread and lay it across the quilt top. First the pinks.
Then the greens and blue greens.
Last, but not least a couple yellows.
I chose one of the pinks. It looked best on all the fabrics. Not too dark and not too light. It also looked best on the little fairies.
Then I start quilting. I decided to add little butterflies with the swirls.

When Heather sent me her quilt top, she also sent me a gift. She made a mug rug using the scraps from her scrappy quilt. I love it!
I took some pictures with my coffee mugs. It matches my favorite mugs. Thanks Heather, that was so cool!
I will do another Quilting Challenge Giveaway in May during the May for Me Celebration.
