Why DID we call it ....

.... Scatty Christmas Stars?

Well, are you sitting comfortably?  Good, then I'll tell you a little story.

Once upon a time there were two scatterbrained quilters called Sue and Cathi who decided it would be a good idea to design a quilt which could be made during their Christmas Quiltalong days.  So they got together, thanks to the wonders of modern science over the internet, and designed a quilt with stars scattered around on it.  Sue and Cathi really hoped that other quilters, who were scattered around the world, would like their design and want to join in and make their version.

As for the "Christmas" and "Stars", well, I don't think I need to explain them.

Since you were all partly right, but no-one was completely, I decided you all deserved to go into a draw, so I talked to Mr Random.org and asked him to choose a number between 1 and 17, and the number he chose was .......
and number 7 is ....  
Trudi, I'm sure I have your address somewhere, but just to make sure, please could you email me again?  

Now I'd better go and decide what the prize is!

Thanks to everyone who entered, and to everyone who took part in this month's Christmas Quiltalong.  Don't forget, the next Christmas Quiltalong will be on the second Saturday in April, and will be hosted by Cathi.
