Challenge Quilt Results


My quilt, Day in the Country, was entry number 7 of 8 for the challenge at my LQS.  Here it is hanging up in the store.  There were two ways to win: Judges' Choice and Viewer's Choice.  Each winner (and it had to be two different entries) won a $50 gift card to the store.

I am so excited to say that my quilt won Judges' Choice.  :D  So it is still hanging up in the store.


We found out when the prizes were announced that the judges were actually two Riley Blake designers.  Pretty cool.

It is probably not a surprise that my boys asked me to spend my winnings on minky fabric.  So I did.  I bought each boy 2/3 yard minky so that I can make them another minky pillow case.  I also bought enough minky for the back of a rainbow quilt I want to make.  I was lucky to find the perfect minky for all four projects in their clearance section.

Thanks for sharing in my excitement!

XX,
Jasmine
