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

  • Voting is open Friday – Monday, August 20th at 8 a.m. (EDT)

  • 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 FIVE favourites 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 of all the quilts and descriptions, CLICK HERE. You’ll need to return to this page to cast your votes. Note: due to the large number of quilts this week, the slider version may not be working correctly.

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.

    Wow!!! This was the most dificult vote by far. All these quilts are gorgeous!!!

  2. That is so funny!! TWO Quilters, BOTH named KATHY (with a K) make the EXACT same scrappy spider web quilt, and BOTH name it: “Scrappy Spider Web Quilt” BAHAHAHA
    You guys really are kindred spirits I think!!!

  3. [...] online fabric shop and I can make a LOT of quilts to donate with that!! Here is the link to vote: Vote Now: Scrappy Quilts / Quilting Gallery Mine is called Geese Crossing [...]

    I love the scrappy quilt contest. It always gives me ideas on how to use my scraps. This was very difficult to choose just 5 quilts. I love the 2 “Orca” quilts , the 2 spider web quilts. the pineapple quilts, the log cabin quilts: I could go on and on. Kodos ladies they are all fantastic!!!

  5. Contrarywife says:

    Scrappy quilts are my favorite! Choosing only five was very hard. Thank all of you for your contributions. There was something to appreciate and learn from each quilt.

  6. Sheila says:

    I find it interesting that the leading vote-getter isn’t a scrappy quilt….her blog shows that it was made from a jelly roll. And that she really isn’t in California….her blog is in a very foreign language. Just sayin’…..

  7. Mishka says:


    My guess is she’s a Russian living in California. There’s no reason to not be truthful about one’s location as anyone anywhere is welcome to enter the contests.

    Yes, different people have different definitions of scrappy. I chose not to police the contestants with my own personal definition. I try to leave the theme’s interpretation up to the quilter. It’s all about sharing in my mind and less about being very strict with the interpretation of the weekly themes.


  8. Marie's quilts says:

    Hi Sheila,

    Yes, I’m Russian, but I live in California now. Sorry, I didn’t know that only US citizens are allowed to participate in this contest…

  9. [...] to everyone who entered last week’s Scrappy quilts contest. So many fabulous quilts. We ended up with a tie for second place. Thanks so much to [...]
