Wow! There were 396 entries to the giveaway! Thanks, everyone, for your sweet comments about my store and tapes. There was a great variety to what you all use bias tape for. First, however, let’s see the winners!
Winner of the Amy Butler Full Moon Polka Dot in Cherry Quilting Tape: #8, Kirie, who said “I use bias tape for cup coasters or potholders mostly. For bigger quilts I prefer straight cut binding. Thank you for the chance to win :)”
Winner of the Diane Kappa Zinnia Garden in Teal double fold bias tape: #130, Angie, who said “I use extra bias tape to go around the edges vinyl of zipper bags. They are great to keep unfinished projects in.”
And because you guys are all so awesome and we surpassed the number of entries to last December’s giveaway, I drew one more name to win three yards of Keri Beyer Purple Zinnia quilting tape: #394, Irina, who said “Hello! Mostly on quilts, but sometimes on dresses for my little girl. Thanks for the chance!”
