I modified this design from a new Eleanor Burns design to make it small enough to fit a friend’s quilt rack. I loved using fall batiks to create the leaves, boarder and binding. I didn’t have enough of one color of fabric for the binding, so I pieced different fabrics together. It worked!

    I tried to vote on the quilt contest, but it would not give me a voting screen, only the the current vote count. I have been the only one to vote on this computer. There is definitely something wrong with your voting setup.

  2. Mishka says:

    Hi Bob,

    There have been almost 500 votes so far this week, so it is working. Also, the voting isn’t necessarily by just computer, it’s by IP adddress. Home, work and small Internet providers might share IP addresses.

    I just checked your IP address and I have a vote registered from your IP address at October 7, 2011 @ 10:34 am

    Cheers,
