American Made Mystery BOM Quilt: Block 4 The Mountains Are Calling- Winners

Prizes Block 4

August is over, and now it’s time to select the winners for Block 4- The Mountains Are Calling.  Many thanks to all of you who shared their blocks-nice work!!  The prizes for this months’s challenge are shown in the pic above.

We received one final entry since posting all of the Block 4 submissions this past Monday.  Carolyn Walsh shared this photo of her block with me.  Carolyn wasn’t quite happy with her first attempt at Block 4 that she originally shared, so after a good night’s rest, with seams ripped out and new triangles replaced, Carolyn sent me her re-do of Block 4, as shown below.  Great job!!  Carolyn learned a lot while constructing Block 4, and now considers starch, her best friend! 🙂
