I told you I would post the winner of the naming of the quilt today......so I am. Robin said:
I think you have your quilt name: Zinnie's ChoiceMr. Joe had also thought of this name Wednesday evening after we lost her. We both agreed, Zinnie's Choice was the perfect name. Robin, please send me your email so I can get in touch with you and mail you a copy of my Patchwork Math book.
Here is Zinnie's Choice named in honor of our dear little furry kid. (The puppy, not our grandson Jess!) This picture was taken the weekend we brought Zinnie home to live with us five years ago. She spent her first weekend in the lake and never left it. Zinnie and Jess grew up together and they were devoted to each other.
Right now Jess is saying, "Grammy, I'm bored and I want to get back to playing."
Jess selected Kellie from Indiana! Kellie named the quilt, "Old Glory Patchwork". This name will also be on the quilt pattern.
Congratulations to you Kellie. I'll put a copy of Patchwork Math in the mail to you in Indiana.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone that sent me such touching emails and all the comforting comments. I've read each and every one multiple times.....always with a tissue in hand. You have brought us great comfort just knowing there are so many caring people in the world. We are getting through each day.......slowly. It is so helpful having family with us over the holiday weekend. Each day I've been trying to send out thank you emails. I will get to everyone in time. To those who are "no-reply", I'm sorry that I can't email you directly.
Thank you too for all of the wonderful names submitted. I appreciated all of your suggestions and interest in the contest. Zinnie would have had so much fun picking the winner.
