Weekly Quilt Contest: Snow, Ice, Cold (Brrrrrrr!)

Congratulations to Yvonne of Belgium for winning last week’s weekly themed quilt contest, Two-Coloured Quilts, with her very unique I and Y challenge quilt.

Thanks to Jojo’s Quilt and Gift Shoppe for their donation of a Metro Market fabric bundle. Thanks also to the 758 voters that cast their ballot over the weekend. It was an exciting contest.

This week’s theme is Snow, Ice, Cold… quilts that make us go Brrrrrrr! To enter, read the rules and guidelines, then submit your quilt photo. Voting will start on Friday and last until Sunday night.

This week’s contest is sponsored by my good friend Geta Grama from Romania. Many of you will already be familiar with her as she’s had several of her free tutorials featured here. I am also the very lucky owner of one of her shadow trapunto quilts.

Last year, Geta published her first Shadow Trapunto e-book, which is fabulous by the way. Now, she’s released a new set of patterns, called Pockets with Love. The pockets are made using origami (the traditional Japanese art of paper folding ). She adapted the technique to fabrics and instead of a single piece of paper, you use two (or three) pieces of fabric. They are super cute and super easy to make. These are perfect for Valentine’s Day, Easter or Christmas as you could hide little treats in the pockets.


The winner of this week’s contest will receive one set of Geta’s Pockets with Love patterns, including the bonus Jolly Bag pattern. Check out the fabulous bags she’s made.

Here’s Geta’s latest free tutorial from her blog, a gorgeous portfolio. Perfect for any little girl. I do believe this would make a great present for my almost 4 year old niece’s birthday later this month. Of course, you can change the fabrics for the artistic little boy in your life too.
