Ursus {Maritimus} Major - winner

Comments are now closed and it seems I've inadvertently lost the post altogether, but luckily the comments for the Brrr! giveaway remain. Phew! We lost track of croissants consumed so I have to rely on the RNG to see who of the 136 commenters will have some sweet fabric to play with. The winner is #107, and I have to publish this so that I can see the comments again and see who that is. Our trio is going well. Both kids have been through a mild stomach flu and are back on track now. I've got a Flickr set called Paris 2012 if you'd like to see some travel pix just click on my Flickr sidebar button, then click on the set. A bientot, mes amis.

What Comes Next? said...

my comment didn't appear - if this doubles up, just delete it. Love the quilt, love the fabric, you're going to consume at least 28 croissants in the first week. Can't wait to see and hear all about your trip!

rowan said...

I think the croissant method sounds much more fun but would make my chances slim lets go with RNG.

Katherine said...

Love your Made in Cherry quilt using Brrr! A perfect combination, Krista.

Hope you're having a fabulous time in France. Enjoy those croissants! ;o)

Christelle said...

Well, a familly of 4, 7 breakfasts, 2 croissants= 56 but with the warm weather that we are enjoying right now you can easily find yourself front of a boulangerie in the afternoon for gouter, the 4 o'clock snack, and have a croissant/pain au chocolat so that's 28 more= 86 for a week witch is nearly insane ;) but so good!
Hope you enjoy your stay

Nina Lise@Mrs Moen said...

I feel like I should say something clever in French, but my vocabulary is around two words. I hope you all are having fun and get to see everything you wish!
Love your quilt!!

Richard Healey said...

traceyjay said...

Missing you!
And croissants sound goooooood.
I've actually heard all the food in France is pretty good, though I'm not overly eager to try escargot any time soon.

Hope you're all having fun!
And I don't need the fabric, even if I like it, so pick someone else. :) But I can't resist leaving a comment.

Trudi said...

lol clearly not enough croissants, if you're still wondering about how many :) Love your Madin Cherry, just have to get the binding sewn onto mine :) Such beautiful fabrics :)

quiltmania said...

This fabric looks delicious! Thanks for the chance.

♥Duff said...

scrap-tacular! or should I say Brr-ific? Neither, just Wis-ful thinking?

Don't forget to look tell me about place to visit when i go!

Flying Blind... said...

Love your Cherry star! Hope you are having fun, and have probably eaten about 72 croissants between you already xxx

Barb said...

Krista, what a darling quilt. I think it is my favourite use of this fabric I've seen. Enjoy your holiday, I can't wait to see it all quilted up.

And yes, I remember Wet Cement skiing. But it was so worth it to ski in just a sweater!

Brown Buttons said...

Jenelle said...

This is fabulous! I love the bright, colorful star with the gray background! I am excited to see how you are going to quilt it too (I'm still pondering that question with mine!).

I am going to guess 16 croissants a day for the whole family, so 112 total (to be conservative)! ;) I hope you are having a lovely time.

Rachel said...

Well, I certainly hope you and your family have big appetites - big enough to consume 80 croissants!!! Haha. Or maybe you'll get tired of croissants and move on to crepes (the ones with Nutella are amazing).

Such a cute quilt. Such cute fabric. Please let me win - maybe it will bring me out of my unbelievable slump.

Happy Travels!
