Vote Now and Give-Away: Quilts for Teens

Quilters' Show & Tell

Grab yourself a pencil and some paper as it’s voting time for this week’s Quilters’ Show & Tell event. The theme is Quilts for Teens. There are 21 gorgeous quilts to inspire you.

This week’s guest judge is Jenny from Jenny H. Quilts. She’ll have 100 bonus points to assign to up to four quilts.

Give-Away from Mishka’s Playground


Mishka’s Playground is my own quilting design web site. It’s currently under construction but will hopefully be updated in the next few weeks. I’ve created the new site to showcase my own quilting designs and tutorials. Below are a few of the patterns I put up this week. More to come soon!



I will be giving away four copies of my patterns. The winners get to choose which pattern or booklet they’d like. Two will be awarded to the quilters with the most community and guest judge points and two will be randomly awarded to those that leave a comment below. Don’t worry, if you purchase one of my patterns and then win the give-away, I’ll refund your purchase price.

To enter the give-away: Leave a comment below answering: “Have you started your Christmas quilting? What are you making as gifts?”. You have until Monday, September 23rd, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. (EDT) to enter the give-away.


Bonus: Check our Facebook page on Saturday morning for another opportunity to win Christmas Ornaments this weekend.

    Have I started my Christmas presents? Oh yes, I started in January. I made a bunch of mug rugs for most of the family as well as car organizers (hang on the back of the front seats) for my kids.

  2. Gale says:

    I started my Christmas quilting in January and I just finished my first large quilt with machine binding last week. Found an awesome tutorial for binding that looks like you added piping, but it’s made with the binding cut in two strips. I will be surely doing more like this.

    Trying to get Xmas gift quilts finished before they qualify as antiques.

  4. Tammy Pettus says:

    No, I have not started any Christmas quilting. Although I should be making Christmas gifts year-round!

  5. Debbie Rogowski says:

    I’ve been working on one quilt for MONTHS I hope it will get to be a Christmas present this year :) Actually if I’m lucky I will enter it in next weeks geese challenge

  6. Hum I do need to start my Christmas quilting I sadly started late last year and have a pile to finish for this year.
