  1. I've bought packets the past two years and missed the deadline both times. This is the year and I'm so excited for your quilting category!!

  2. I ordered mine ..........I am still using my quilt I made one year.

  3. I bought five packets. They arrived yesterday and they are fabulous!!

  4. I still haven't received my packets--it's now May 20--so I'll be hard pressed to get in an entry unless it shows up soon. Perhaps you should consider a longer notice period or maybe I was just late finding out?
    Never mind, I adore your prints and will be happy to get/use/sew them. Maybe I'll get a ticket! There's always hope.

  5. Printed umbrella is more attractive than the ordinary one and we can even print our own logo or text in it. Check out printed umbrellas cochin
