Please refer to the full contest info page for how the votes are calculated for this contest.
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 square button** beside each one. Select the buttons for the TWO quilts you want to vote for.
- Then scroll down, all the way, until you get to the bottom of the names of the quilts. Press the vote button.
- One vote per person (based on IP address NOT email address), so have your family and friends cast a ballot for their favourite quilts (from home if you send it to coworkers).
** 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.
