We’re thrilled so many of you took the time to submit your quilt pix to our National Quilting Day competition. We don’t know when we’ve spent a more enjoyable weekend – hour after hour, new entries poured in and we got the chance to see incredible work, a vast range of techniques, and rainbows of color palettes. From expertly executed kitted quilts to ingenious original designs, your talents amazed and delighted us!
Even more inspiring were the stories that came with the pictures. Quilters are a special kind of generous, spending days, weeks, and sometimes years creating beautiful quilts and then gifting them to family, friends, and sometimes strangers in need. Love is handmade!
How to choose a winner? It wasn’t possible to pick just one. So we’ve awarded one Best In Show, plus additional winners in several categories plus Honorable Mentions. Congratulations to our winners! Please message us on Facebook with your contact information so we can get your prizes to you.
Sincere thanks to everyone who posted a pix and shared their awesome projects with all of us. Quilt on!
