Weekly Quilt Contest: Honouring Veterans

weekly quilt contest

The theme for this week’s quilt contest is Honouring Veterans. You can submit quilts of any size or other fabric-made items as long as the item you enter represents the theme and is completely finished, i.e. quilted and bound.

I’m thrilled to introduce you to a new sponsor this week, Calico Mermaid. They’ve donated a gorgeous quilt kit for this week’s winner.

Sponsor required for next week’s Sports contest. Sponsor info is here.

Calico Mermaid


Calico Mermaid is Downtown Porterville, California’s, quilt fabric shop, opened in April 2011 by Richard & Georgia. We are both teachers & enjoy traveling, scuba diving, & creating. You’ll find lots of inspiration & temptation here in books, patterns, classes, & 3000 bolts of fabric. We’re your local Handi Quilter Dealer, with both the Sweet Sixteen & Avante set up for lessons & rental by the hour.


The Calico Mermaid symbolizes our whimsical vision of an imaginative, inspirational space to sew, quilt, and create. We want your visits here to be relaxing, comfortable, & fun. Check our Calico Mermaid Blog, Pinterest and Facebook for frequent updates and pictures of what’s new at the Mermaid. We welcome you & hope to see you stop by the shop or visit on line.
