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!

  • Voting is open Friday – Monday, October 1st 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 FOUR 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.

Next Week’s Quilt Contest

The theme for next week’s quilt contest is Quilts for the Little Ones. If you’ve entered an earlier contest this year, please don’t submit the same quilt, we want to see something different. You can submit quilts or wall hangings 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, October 5, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. (EDT). Voting will start shortly thereafter and last until the following Monday, October 8, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. (EDT).

  1. I’m distressed to say this quilt was stolen from the Cliff Dweller Gallery in Gatlinberg, Tennessee.

  2. Mishka says:

    Which quilt? There are 30 quilts in the contest. You should contact the quilter directly if you suspect this.

  3. My comment above is in reference to my entry, “Psycho Deco Fleurs”, in this week’s contest. If anyone spots it, my email address can be found in my profile on my blog, “Nellie’s Needles.” Thanks.

  4. Mishka says:

    Oh Nellie, I’m so sorry to hear that your quilt was stolen. How awful for you. There is a web site where you can have your lost quilt info posted.


    Good luck!!

  5. [...] to everyone who entered last week’s Group Exchange Quilts contest. Thanks also to our sponsor, LoveBug Studios, and to those that took the time to vote. [...]
