We are in pretty darn good company I'd say. Robin and I are thrilled and very grateful for Sew Cal Gal and her continued support of the quilt world. She is always on the search for the newest product, tip, or best of out there. If you do not follow Sew Cal Gal, please add her to your list and you will not be disappointed.

It is a thrill just to be nominated.
