The randomly selected winner of an electronic quilt pattern created by Tammie Bowser, plus a video course in her stitched art techniques. Tammie will personally create the winner’s quilt pattern using their random photo, is Jackie Cheek.
Her comment is: I have two thoughts in mind, I would Ike to do one of my family when we were all much younger. My mom’s birthday is in November and it would be such a surprise for her. I think I only have the picture in black and white but I can check on it. I have it electronically and it would need to be enlarged. The other idea is to surprise my brother with his because he’s always been supportive of my creative interests.
