It’s voting time for this week’s Memory Quilts contest. Grab yourself a cup of coffee and a pencil to make note of your faves. I hope you’ll take the time to read the stories that go along with the quilts, they are heart-warming. You can vote for FOUR favourites this weekend.
Valerie from Pastimes Online is back as this week’s sponsor and she’s donated two lovely magazines for the winner.
Now it’s time for you to vote for your favourites!
- Voting is open Friday – Monday, July 16th at 8 a.m. (EDT)
- 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 afternoon/evening
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 FOUR 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.
