Quilt Aid USA 2010 and LOTS of winners!

Once upon a time a couple designers.. or maybe exactly 12...half Australian, half American.. were asked to design one block each for the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia.

Kathy Schmitz Block found @ FQS
Lynette Anderson found @ FQS

The other 10 designers are Helen Stubbings, Annie Downs, Sue Daley, Bronwyn Hayes, Natalie Lymer, Anne Sutton, Bari Sue, Brenda Riddle, Robyn Pandolph and Terri Denkenholb.  Are you imagining how cute the blocks are yet!? 

(You can find the rest of the blocks at the Quilt Aid USA website and on the following picture)

 Then another day they asked Mrs. Kimberly Jolly (who IS the Fat Quarter Shop-- hints "Jolly" in our blog name)  to design a finishing kit... which completed the charity quilt!

The two shown blocks and quilt kit are available exclusively at Fat Quarter Shop.  You can head over to the Quilt Aid website for more information and to learn where you can buy the rest of the blocks!


Sooo apparently it was really hard to stop giving things away (again) the past few days.. because we have a good lineup to announce winners for!! Plus... After slaving away at each of the Moda Designer booths, I came home with 4 of these:

It's a hankie stamped/ signed by each of the designers that had a booth at Market. (And yes, those heads are their actual profiles.. how cute right!) Sooo that means ONE for each of the "Fall Market '10" winners!  Almost like your husband getting an autographed football from his favorite NFL team, right!? (Could be worth millions some day... hehe) ;-)  But something super adorable that they did with the hankie at market was turning it into a little pillow.. Very easy project that makes a fabulous keepsake! 

Soo now on with announcing the 5 winners.. First I will state the title of the post, then state the winner directly below:
