Announcing Giveaway #3 Winner . . . and more

Thanks for joining us last week as we recapped the 2014 CQI Retreat in Kansas City.  

Without further ado, let us announce the winner of a set of storage bags from Thearica Burroughs of Crazy Quilting Supplies.  No picture of these are available, but the retreat ladies loved them.  And to go along with (or IN) the bags is a gorgeous Stash Bundle from Gerry Hookstra of Sewing Southpaw.

So, here are the results:

Some General Announcements for CQI and this blog. . .

We plan to reactivate and re-energize the blog with regular postings of CQI group happenings and, most of all, crazy quilting eye candy.  Yahoo Groups has made it difficult for us to maintain comprehensive photo albums of every round robin as we used to, which was step-by-step stitching on each block.  But we will be featuring a round robin every week or two and show you some of the lovely blocks being created.

In addition to posting about round robins, we will announce swaps, charity events, challenges, and more here. And we also want to brag about member accomplishments, so be sure to let us know when you finish a project, win a ribbon, or piece your first block!!  We will strive for a quarterly recap - or newsletter, if you will - to keep you abreast of what is going on in the CQI world.

And finally, this is where you will find information regarding our planned 2015 CQI Retreat in the Netherlands next September. 

So be sure to add us to your blog-reading feed, and we will see you back here soon!

Congratulations to the winners - grand prizes that I'm sure will be well received. I will be interested in following along with the new direction CQI is taking.

Thank you so much for committing to do this. Yahoo has broken my heart for disrupting our wonderful group with its horrible supposed update Neo. One can't see details in the photos while they spin about, and most can't get photos posted! I hope they read this!
Love, love CQI! Amy in LA
