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 Christmas Table Runners and there are several to inspire you.

Our guest judge for this week is Karen from Faeries and Fibres. She’ll have 100 bonus points to assign to up to four quilts.

Give-Away from Swirly Girls Design

Swirly Girls

Susan Emory and Christine Van Buskirk are the Swirly Girls and together they design quilting patterns with a contemporary approach to traditional quilting.

Daydream Cover LR

Always searching to make quilting more efficient and enjoyable, the Swirly Girls have developed two rulers with Creative Grids, the Circle Savvy Ruler and the 30 Degree Triangle Ruler.

    We do not have this tradition but we do Yule Log, Christmas Cake and Breudher (a dutch origin cross between a bread and cake!). I love reading about the cookie bakathons though!

  2. Chantal L says:

    For some (funny) reason, the page is not downloading properly and doesn’t let me vote. All I can see is the results after 324 voters. I would have voted for Winter Wonderland too, because it is so different and it can stay on the table the entire winter. Thanks.

    Still waiting for the winners to be announced. Should I just give up?
