Vote Now: Appliqué Quilts


Grab yourself a cup of coffee, or two, or three, and browse the gorgeous Appliqué Quilts for this week’s themed quilt contest. These quilts are amazing!

Jacquelynne Steves, the owner/designer for The Noble Wife design company is this week’s sponsor. The quilter with the most votes will receive a bundle of fat quarters from Jacquelynne’s new Sewing Room Social fabric line and a free pattern (retail value $53.00).

A give-away for all: Jacquelynne is also hosting a give-away on her blog at TheNobleWife.blogspot.com. Read the rules and enter the give-away over there. The winner will receive 3 free patterns and a pile of other goodies (retail value $45.00).

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 wearables with a circular button** beside each one. Select the button for the wearable you want to vote for.
  • Then scroll down, all the way, until you get to the bottom of the names of the wearables. 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, or that you need to refresh the page to see the voting options. 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.

I’ll to wait til tomorrow to vote when I have lots of time to take Michelle’s advice and sit back, have a cup of coffe, and take my time and really look at each one very carefully. Congratulations to all of the quilters!!!

  5. Sally says:

  6. [...] – I entered a quilt into the Quilting Gallery Contest…….It’s a better picture than this one, I blogged about on this [...]

  7. DianeH says:

    Fabulous entries ladies and gentleman!

  8. OHMYGOSH!!!!! There are some wonderful pieces here….so tough to choose just one!
    Beautiful work everyone

  9. Laura says:

    So many gorgeous entries!! Hard to choose just one, but I must say I’m partial to hand applique. That narrowed it down some.

    Congratulations to all for your patience. I love applique, especially done by hand, but it’s time consuming!

  10. Laura says:

    Such gorgeous pieces and so hard to choose just one! Hand applique is one of my favourites.

  11. mrs. p says:

    What beautiful quilts! Alot of variety!

  12. Ms Lottie says:

    This is the hardest one I’ve ever voted on yet. There are so many lovely ones to choose from! Some stunning work and some beautiful designs. Well done everyone.

  13. Carolyn says:

    I just love the Ricky Tims’ quilt. Beautiful

  14. Julie says:

    I have voted, but there are some truly wonderful quilts and some very talented people. Congratulations to everyone!

  15. Sandi says:

    Well, this was the hardest one yet to cast a vote for just one! I wanted to vote for six of them and recognised names of quilters I’ve come to know here in Blogland. They are all lovely. I was taken by the Kokeshi Dolls quilt, though. Forty one years ago at this time, I was just days away from giving birth to our first child, daughter Collette, born in Tachikawa, Japan. We were there while my husband was in the Air Force and I loved the little Kokeshi dolls and bought several that Collette has in her sewing room, a reminder of where she was born but a place she will likely never return to. I thought they were so well done and while not a traditional applique like Baltimore blocks, the work was lovely. :-)

    I cannot find out where to cast my vote. All of the entries are gorgeous, but I wanted to vote for Koeshi dolls but I can’t vote. I clicked the button that said to go to the blog page to vote, but it brings me to the same page.
