It’s time to vote and enter the give-away for our first Quilters’ Show & Tell event. As I mentioned in previous posts, the new Show & Tell events replace the old weekly quilt contests that I have hosted for the past three years.
Each Friday, you’ll still get to see the gorgeous quilts that have been submitted, plus you get to select your favourites and everyone can enter the weekly give-away too. Additionally, two guest judges will also be reviewing the quilts and assigning 100 bonus points to four (or less) of their favourite quilts. Winners of the Show & Tell and the weekly give-away will be announced sometime on Monday.
This week’s theme is Favourite Quilt from 2012. It’s an open-ended theme and quilters could submit any quilt done in any style. New for this year, quilts submitted do not have to be 100% complete… works in progress are encouraged.
Give-Away from the Fat Quarter Shop
Happy 2013, everyone!
We are excited to enter this new year with a blank slate. While we have tons of unfinished objects (UFOs) in our sewing rooms, we have made it our mission to tackle them with a fresh, eager perspective! Despite all of the projects that were pushed aside, we have plenty of quilts from 2012 that we are quite proud of.
Over here at Fat Quarter Shop, we are particularly proud of all of the quilts from our book, Simply Fat Quarters. Each quilt was meticulously planned, pieced and quilted. After all of the hard work, they are now around for us to enjoy!
They have donated two $20 gift certificates for this week’s winners. The first prize will be awarded to the quilter that submitted a photo and receives the most votes, by popular choice (i.e. those voting below) plus the guest judges’ bonus points. The second prize is open to everyone.
To enter the give-away, leave a comment below answering: Do you have any favourite quilts from 2012? Any quilts that you will cherish for years to come? Or beloved quilts that were gifted to a special someone?
Winner chosen from the comments left below will be selected randomly. You have until Monday, January 14, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. to enter the give-away.
P.S. You can read my review of their fantastic Simply Fat Quarters book here.
