Vote Now: School Days and/or Changing Seasons Quilt Contest


It’s voting time for this week’s School Days and/or Changing Seasons quilt contest. The quilts entered fit into one or both of the two themes this week. Grab yourself a cup of coffee and a pencil to make note of your faves. You can vote for TWO favourites this weekend.

Our sponsor, Swirly Girls, has put together a fabulous gift box of goodies for this week’s winner.


Please, if you’ve entered a quilt in the contest, be sure to read the updated rules and guidelines page on inviting others to vote for your quilt. I really don’t want to have to disqualify someone from the competition this week as they didn’t follow the rules. Having to deal with voting issues over the past few weeks has really taken a toll on my creative spirit. So, let’s have a stop to the problems please.

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

  • Voting is open Friday – Monday, September 10th 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 ***
  • 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 TWO favourites this week.
  • Then scroll down, all the way, until you get to the bottom of the list of quilt names. 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.

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.

Next Week’s Quilt Contest

The theme for next week’s quilt contest is Row Quilts. Personally, I love row quilts and can’t wait to see what you’ve made. Your quilt can be made with any technique (pieced, appliqué, embroidery) as long as the item you enter is completely finished (i.e. bound and quilted).

To enter the weekly contest, read the rules and guidelines, then submit your photo by next Friday, September 14, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. (EDT). Voting will start shortly thereafter and last until the following Monday, September 17, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. (EDT).
