I went through double blind hoops to pick the winner of my quilt,

Firstly, I edited the list of comments, taking out the duplicates and the oops ones etc.
There were 88 entries.

So then I wrote 1 to 88 on a piece of paper, and cut them apart.

Mixed them up and laid them out randomly in rows of 15.

IE, number 1 on this random list is number 2 on the written list, number 2 here is number 41 on the written list, etc.

And I used a Random Number Generator here and tried to take a pic of it to add here but it isn't working. And it looks like I picked a number between 1 and 100 on this clip, but I did use 88!

(This isn't allowing me to post and I suspect it is the RNG pic that I added here so I am removing it and hoping this will then become a blog entry...)

And number 49 on the RNG equates to number 52 on my original list.
Is this double blind enough, d'you reckon?

And that is Cindy from Chilliwack, British Colombia.
Her blog is

I have emailed her to let her know she will be a tad warmer this winter! 

And this is what the quilt is beginning to look like. Still has to have borders, and still to be quilted. That will happen as soon as I get a day that looks a bit like mine and nobody else's...

Congrats to Cindy.

Now you owe me 300 games of Wordscraper (after the race meeting of course).

And a fine double blind test that was! Not that I could follow that math, but I believe you :) Congratulations to the winner.

Hello! Just wanted to let you know that I've changed my email address and blog URL since winning this quilt, but my mailing address is still the same. If you get a chance to mail me the quilt I won, I would be grateful.

Thank you,
