Vote Now: People and/or Faces Quilts (Give-Away)


Grab yourself a cup or two of coffee and browse the gorgeous People and/or Faces Quilts for this week’s themed quilt contest. Thanks to everyone that has entered and shared their beautiful creations with us.

This week’s contest is sponsored by Mystery writer, Laura Childs. She has donated five copies of her latest book in the Cackleberry Mystery series: Bedeviled Eggs. The top two quilters with most votes will each win a copy. The other three copies will be awarded to site visitors leaving a comment below.

Bedeviled Eggs

Wanted: Sponsors for upcoming weekly contests. This is a great opportunity to have your shop and/or quilting products featured here. Contact me!

Now it’s time for you to vote for your favourite!

  • Voting is open Friday – Sunday @ 11:59 p.m.
  • One vote per IP address (NOT email address), so have your family and friends cast a ballot for their favourite quilt (from home if you send it to coworkers)
  • Winner announced Monday!

How to Vote:

  • Review the photos and stories below… there are several, so you’ll need to scroll down to see them all.
  • Underneath the photos, scroll down, you’ll see the names of all the quilts with a circular button** beside each one. Select the button for the quilt you want to vote for.
  • Then scroll down, all the way, until you get to the bottom of the names of quilts. Then press the vote button.

** Note: If you don’t see the circular buttons to vote, but instead see the voting results, that means someone on your IP Address already voted or that the voting period has ended. Shared IP Addresses are very common in home or work networks.

Please Note: If you are not seeing all of the photos, check your browser settings. Go to view, and text size. Make sure it’s set at medium. If you need web sites to be larger so you can read them more easily, then use the browser’s Zoom function, not the text resize. This is a known bug and hopefully I’ll have it fixed soon.

    awesome work by all

  2. Darlene Bayley says:

    Hi! I am fabricpainter from above, so this doesn’t count as an entry! However, I just want to say how flattered I am to be able to have a quilt in this contest with these other superbly talented quilters! There is so much talent out there and it is great to have a forum like this to see each other’s work!

  3. Sue Goodin says:

    I’m currently reading the SisterChicks series.

  4. Teresa D. says:

    I love to read Marie Bostwicks Cobbled Court Quilt Circle books. I started reading them when I saw a book of hers titled “A Single Thread”. It inspired me to quilt more and heal from losing my oldest Son. As I thought I was hanging by a single thread at the time.

    My favorite quilts are the Sailor and the lady w/fan

  5. Karol B. says:

    These Quilts are fantastic. I want to make a memorie Craszy Quilt and I just hope it tirns out half as nice as these. The picture quilts aresomething to aspire too. What a honor to her Dad the Sailor. My Dad served in the Army in WWII. I will be honoring him in my quilt although he will never see it. He passed in 1990

  6. Mary Lea says:

    Beautiful quilts! I have just finished up reading the “Girl witthe Dragon Tatoo” trilogy.

  7. Edna Kidd says:

    Loved the quilts! I hope to enter a quilt in this contest soon…

  8. Sandi says:

    I just wanted to say that I loved the Sailor quilt. I think it is just the best and how cool that the maker’s dad likes the quilt and can enjoy it!
