It’s voting time for this week’s Row Quilts contest. We have a small group of beautiful quilts for you to enjoy. Grab yourself a cup of coffee and a pencil to make note of your faves. You can vote for TWO favourites this weekend.
Our friends from the Fat Quarter Shop are back as this week’s sponsor and they’ve donated a $25 gift certificate for the winner.
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.
Now it’s time for you to vote for your favourites!

Next Week’s Quilt Contest
The theme for next week’s quilt contest is Fall’s Glory. You are free to interpret this theme as you like. It can be represented in the actual design or the colours you’ve chosen. You can submit quilts, wall hangings, table toppers, etc. 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 21, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. (EDT). Voting will start shortly thereafter and last until the following Monday, September 24, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. (EDT).
