    I tried to vote for Linda Brown’s quilt “Diamond in the Rough” and I couldn’t find the circle to vote in, what did I do wrong?
    Thanks

  3. Tammy Magill says:

    I’ve watched the Prairie Star quilt come together. Its just gorgeous and I know Shirley does exceptional work. I think she is being modest about how much time she put into it. I would love to see it win some award, somewhere! Good luck to all quilters.

  4. Maggie says:
