about the prize quilt:

The size of this quilt is a lap quilt. It measures approx. 55″ square.

The fabrics are called “When skies are gray”. They feature umbrellas, raindrops, and other sweet little lovelies.

The colors are palest blue, bright white, gold and black.

I’ve used two different fabrics for the back, a gingham and a turquoise fabric. It blends with the front beautifully.

Then I’ve quilted it with wavy lines both horizontally and vertically.

Then finished off with a black and white scallop print for the binding.

how can you win this quilt:

To enter the photo contest you just need to send a picture of one of my quilts in use or displayed like the pictures below.

HOW TO WIN:

I will be selecting my favorite picture from all the entries I receive, the more creative the photo the better. I love to see my quilts in YOUR life.

Here is the winner of our photo contest for 2013!  Congratulations to Bobbi from Wisconsin.

I absolutely LOVE this picture!  I really liked the garland in the background that was made with some of my fabric samples.  That was a very nice touch!

I also wanted to thank all who participated.  I have enjoyed all of your pictures and comments.  It has really been fun!  I definately want to make this a yearly thing, and I hope to think of some new ideas for contests in the future.  THANK YOU so much to all!  I really really mean that.

Photo Contest Top 11

So tomorrow is the day I select a winner for the photo contest.  I am just wowed at how many entries we’ve had.  I wasnt expecting so many, but I wanted to thank you all for participating.  I am going to make this an annual contest.  Just cause it was so much fun.

I have really really enjoyed looking at all your pictures and chatting with you each.  I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to send these to me.

I’ve had a very hard time narrowing it down to a top 10, but after looking at them over and over I finally have.  All of the pictures I’ve received are just fantastic, but these below are my favorites for different reasons.  I really was basing the contest on quality and creativity and I believe I’ve chosen the most creative out of all of them.

I will choose a winner in tomorrow’s post to win the throw quilt.  You do have until midnight to send me entries before I choose a winner so there is a small chance that the winner will not come from these.

These are in no particular order.
