Vote Now: Christmas Quilts

Update: December 18, 2011, 8:02 pm – Voting extended until Monday at 6:00 pm due to a technical glitch on the site today. Sorry folks. If you ever see a problem, drop me an email or a message in Facebook. I wasn’t aware of the problem.

Please note, Facebook, email subscribers and RSS readers: You need to visit the Quilting Gallery blog to vote and view the quilt photos: CLICK HERE


It’s voting time!! The theme for this week’s quilt contest is Christmas. We have many, many beautiful quilts for you to look at. Grab yourself a cup of coffee (or two!) and a pencil to make note of your faves. You can vote for SEVEN quilts this weekend.

Our friends from the Fat Quarter Shop have generously donated two $50 gift certificates for the contest winners.

Be sure to check out their Countdown to Christmas deals where they have one collection or a group of collections from 30% – 50% OFF!

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 SEVEN 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.

Slider version: To view the large photos to display all the quilts and descriptions, CLICK HERE. You’ll need to return to this page to cast your votes.

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. You can also use the scroll bar above, beside the photos, to scroll and see the hidden ones.

    I just wanted to stop and take the time to Thank Michele for all the hard work she puts into this lovely site. I enjoy it very much, and I know that it takes a bit of her time when she could be doing something else. But thank you and Happy Holidays.

  4. Mishka says:

    Thanks so much for your lovely comment Jacquelyn. That means a lot to me.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Lindy says:

    Well! How much fun was that herd of quilts? Thanks, Michele and thanks quilters for sharing. (GREAT way to start my day!)

  6. How inspiring. Wish I had the time to run straight down to my studio and get busy. Maybe in January I can work on something for NEXT year!

  7. Kim Hanson says:

    It’s so much fun voting..but so very hard to make a decision. Beautiful, lovely quilts.

  8. Connie says:

    Beautiful quilts, thanks for sharing!

  9. Terri says:

    Just wondering why the number of votes isn’t the same for a total on which to base the percentage of the votes. Doesn’t seem fair.

  10. Kate says:

    Oh my, such beautiful quilts! The talent that surrounds us is truly amazing. Thanks for letting us see all this beauty.

  11. Sondra says:

    Totally amazing selection! it was difficult to choose! Wonderful to see them. Thanks for sharing all of these wonderful quilts, Michelle. You do an amazing job on this website. Just started following it.
    Best to you, Sondra

  12. Mishka says:

    Hi Terri,

    It’s not the total number of votes, it’s the number of Voters, and they can vote for up to 7 quilts this week. The total number of votes cast by all voters isn’t actually displayed but can be figured out by adding the individual votes.

    Hope this helps to clarify.
