It’s voting time!! The theme for this week’s quilt contest is Travel-Inspired Quilts. You can vote for TWO faves this weekend.

The quilter with the most votes received over the weekend, will win an organic cotton fat quarter bundle of 10 solid colors (retail value of $35) from this week’s sponsor, Good Earth Quilting.

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

  • Voting is open Friday – Sunday @ 11:59 p.m.
  • One vote per person (based on 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. You can also click the link to the slider version to review the quilts in the large format and then return to this page to vote.
  • Underneath the photos, scroll down, you’ll see the names of all the quilts with a square button** beside each one. Select the buttons for the quilts you want to vote for. You can select up to TWO quilts this week.
  • Then scroll down, all the way, until you get to the bottom of the names of the quilts. Press the vote button.

** Note: If you don’t see the square 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.

    Wow! What wonderful works. The decision isn’t easy

    Hi! I know that is not related to this topic, but I read about the Saral transfer paper and your tests. I am DESPERATE to find out if you actually used the Saral transfer paper on a REAL quilt, quilted it AND it came off!

    Or do you know if any of your followers/winners used it, quilted over it AND it came out?

    I thought this was going to be the end of all my problems, but in my tests I have a MESS and am afraid to continue as this is not my quilt.

    Hoping you (or someone else) see this and respond with your experience.

    Hi Robin,

    Most of my quilting is free motion or straight lines, so I haven’t marked quilting lines with Saral yet. I have used it for applique placement and didn’t have any problems. What problems have you run into?

    Thank you all SO very much for voting for my quilt, Puerto Colombia! What a thrill and honor it is to have won.

    Create your life,
