Fat Quarter Shop Giveaway Winner Announced!

 Gift certificate was claimed! :)

WOW!! This has been a fantastic week!!  I want to thank everyone for coming out and making this giveaway a huge success!  The Fat Quarter Shop's ears should have been burning all week from all the chatter going on!  I want to thank Kimberly for allowing me to host this fabulous giveaway on my blog!  And I welcome my newest followers to our little family here on PigTales and Quilts!  I hope you can get comfortable and stay around a while!  You just never know what I have up my sleeve!

Over the next week I am going to visit all of your blogs so be watching for me.  I have visited a few of you already. :)

I have put you all down on paper and numbered each entry as you commented for each option that you qualified for.  I also checked out your blogs if you told me that you posted about the giveaway.  There was only 1 blog who did not qualify because they did not link back here to my blog and they misspelled my blogs name as well so no-one could have found their way over here anyway.

If your name has a STAR by it, that means someone told me you sent them over and that is your extra chance!

There were 375 eligible entries and 47 uneligible entries.  The uneligible entries left no way for me to contact them and they did not have a blog either.  Please visit SewCalGal's blog to find out what you should do before the next giveaway to be sure your entry is eligible!  She has great instructions on how to take care of that!

Without further adieu here is the order in which your name was in the drawing...












These were the ineligible entries.. Please go to SewCalGal's blog to see how to correct this before you enter your next giveaway so you have a chance to win!
I guess you are getting pretty antsy wanting to know who won that fabulous $50.00 gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop!!  I used the generator at www.random.org for choosing the winner!

Now..... Let's get the show on the road!!!

The winner is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Comment # 218!!!!    Mama Spark!!!
CONGRATULATIONS MAMA SPARK!!!

I will be emailing you in about 5 minutes!  You have until Saturday morning 1/15/2011  at 8 a.m. Eastern time to reply to my email with your mailing address or I will draw another winner!

Thanks to everyone once again!  Stay tuned to the next ball of fun coming soon!!!

Yay for Mama Spark-love her name too. Good job again Thearica. I love your events.

Are there any raffles coming up that benefit hospitals, et al. Any raffle in that field interests me.

Congrat's Mama Sparks! I really like how you explained your drawing and made a note to the ineligible T~ makes a lot of sense. Hopefully those bloggers will follow up and be eligible next time. :-) Have a happy day!

Congrats to Mama Sparks! Have fun spending the gc.

And thank you for explaining the process of picking a name. I've wondered about that in the past.
