Remember this quilt top I made about a month ago? It was a "Your Truly Round Robin". Otherwise we made it all instead of passing it around. Carol Doaks came up with this after they had some problems with the last round robin the group did. She gave the instruction for each round and we had a month to finish and post. At the end of June she made a random pick of those that had completed their tops and posted a picture on the group site.
Well, I was the winner.

When I came home the other day here was this big box. When I saw who it was from I knew what it was.
This neat walnut box. About 7x7. The lid comes up and the top is made so you can put your own block in there. Perfect for Jewelry or whatever.
Here I put a orphan 6 in. block in to show how it will look. Neat isn't it?

Now to get this quilt finished. It will go well in my bath room with the rose -pinks.

Hubby is improving every day. Now if he'd learn to sleep at night instead of dozing all day so I could get a good nights sleep.

Wow! What a wonderful prize!!

Bummer it was a random win as I think your design and the colors would win anyway!

What a beautiful prize. I love almost anything wood, and being able to put your choice of block (and I assume change it when you get the urge) makes it more special.
Your quilt is awesome, you deserve it.
Glad to hear your husband is doing better.
