Vote Now: Save a UFO Challenge Finalists

Quilt Challenge Save a UFO

The UFO’s have landed!! Below are the ten finalists for the Quilting Is Murder – Save a UFO Challenge. Take a look and vote for your TWO favorite quilts. Don’t forget to read the stories: these quilts are all super special! For some, you’ll need click the link to go to Flickr to read the full story.

Voting closes midnight February 19th, 2012. Forward the contest info to your quilting friends and share the love.

On February 20th, we’ll award the quilt that receives the most votes a brand new bernette 25 sewing machine. The 9 runners up will receive a set of Quilting Is Murder lapel pins and both copies of the Quilter’s Cookbook from the Quilting Gallery. 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.

    This is great! I wish that the timing would have worked out for me to enter one. I think you should do this again. It is a great motivator.
