Well, another year of making blocks has sped by, and here we are, at the time for announcing the prize winners.
But first, our 2017 statistics, because I think it’s fun to see how we did as a group, and how we did against previous year’s numbers (You can find links to previous year’s reports at the bottom of The Project Page). So here we go . . .
I really am impressed — and so proud of all of us!
Are you ready to try it again in 2018? I didn’t even debate it this year — I just knew I wanted to do it again. I know I have lots of blocks to make! I hope you’re with me.
But first, I need to announce the rest of this year’s prizes . . .
Our December monthly prize winner is Delana, who made 177 blocks this year!
For the Project as a whole, there’s a Grand Prize package, and three other prize packages. The Grand Prize package is valued at around $100, and the other three are valued at just around $60 each. I gather things little by little all year to put in the packages (all stuff I’d like to get my ownself, if I were eligible!): gift certificates to online fabric stores, books, patterns, fabric, notions, etc. — so I hope that makes it worth your time to keep track of all your blocks and report them in!
The Grand Prize winner is drawn from among all the participants who made it past the 350 blocks goal. The other prize winners are drawn at random from among all the active participants, regardless of how many blocks you made, and it also doesn’t matter if you’ve already won a monthly prize — your name gets thrown back in for the grand prizes. The only rule is that you must have reported in at least 6 times throughout the year to be considered an active participant, even if you reported in late, and even if you reported a ZERO for the month.
So here we go . . . The Grand Prize winner is:
Diana made a total of 766 blocks, over 2 sets of 350!
The other three prize winners, in no particular order, are:
Crystal (442 blocks)
Suelynn (201 blocks)
Darlene (78 blocks)
We had a great year! I’m excited to see what we can do as a group in 2018!
Congratulations to all the winners, and as always, thank you ALL so very much for joining in and playing along with the Project this year. You have no idea how much I appreciate it, and I really enjoy hearing from you every month!
I’ll be back tomorrow with the start of the 2018 350 Blocks Project. The rules are the same as last year — it’s still easy, free, and has prizes! So check back in Monday and get signed up!
