My Quilting Assistant

Hello Everyone,
My name is Zinnie and my job was picking the winner in my mom's Sew'n Wild Oaks pattern contest.  I take my job very seriously so please read all the way to the end.  

My sisters, Emily and Kinsey wrote all of your names on my favorite doggy cookies.  They had to write for me.  If I had thumbs, and could hold a magic marker, I would have written all of the names.

Now, which treat should I choose?  I'm almost 5, and my reading skills are getting better.

Maybe if I get a little closer, I can see the names a little better.....where are my glasses when I need them?

Well, now I've read all of the names and bumped the treats with my paws..........

........and I'm going to pick..............

.....this one.........SANDY the Quilt Junkie.  Sandy said, "What a great pattern! Was it a BOM? I might even be able to manage those blocks - lol!"

But wait.....there's more.  I was so anxious to pick a winner that I selected a doggy treat before the camera was ready.  The first name I picked was HAPPY COTTAGE QUILTER who said, "What an amazing quilt!! Beautifully done. Thanks so much for the giveaway :-)"

So there are 2 winners, not one!  Quilt Junkie Sandy and Happy Cottage Quilter, please email my mom ( your address and I'll mail your choice of any one Sew'n Wild Oaks pattern or Patchwork Math Resource Manual to you.  You can find the patterns on the left-hand sidebar of the blog.

So until the next contest........I'll be curled up at my mom's feet while she blogs and quilts. Thank YOU all for being there day after day with us.

Until the next giveaway,


  1. Zinnie...You are the best judge ever!!!! Yur mom is lucky to have you!!!!!

    Many thanks to Zinnie for choosing my doggie treat, and to you, Lynn, for you generous give-away!

  10. Congrats to the winners! and well done Zinnie for not eating them all in one go.

  11. Great job Zinnie you are truly an unbiased judge! You are a great help to your mom and did her proud.

  12. Zinnie exercises more self control then I am able when presented with a whole table of treats..Way to go Zinnie.

  13. Congratulations to the winners! Was someone holding Zinnie with invisible robe? Ms Cha Cha Cat would have eaten every one of those treats before I had them spread out.

  14. Congrats to the winners, and to Zinnie for being such a clever judge.

  15. Congrats to both winners.....I agree with Jacqueline. I would have gobbled them all up.....

  16. Congratulations to the winners! Zinnie, you are a lovely girl and I am sure a wonderful help to your Mom. Please tell your Mom I rethought the offer she made yesterday and happily say "yes" if the offer still stands.

  17. Zinnie, I admire the fact that you didn't gobble up all those treats in the blink of an eye! Congratulations to the winners!

  18. I found a note to myself: House on Edgewood Lane @ Sew'n Wild Oats....but I cannot find anything here - can you help?
