The week & month of contests!

Remember the post from a couple weeks ago about the quilt that cost me the edge of my fingertip? Well, injured finger or not, I was determined to get that little quilt done so I could enter it into McCall's Quilt Design Star contest! Here's the finished quilt!

I would really, really, really love to make it to the finalist round! They are taking public votes all month long and while the judges will pick the 15 finalists, lots of public votes would certainly get their attention. :) You can vote HERE daily!

Here is a close up of the same quilt. I've named it Windy Day Pinwheels and it will hang in my son's room. It uses many of the same fabrics as my girls' quilts!

I've collected so many fabrics for his quilt over his two years that I made it really scrappy, but here's a peek at my color placement sketch so you can see the pinwheel pattern a little better.

That's not the only fabric/quilt/contest news! I also created a “cheater quilt” panel with my "I *Heart* Daisies" designs for the current Spoonflower Fabric of the Week contest! I’d sure love to win and if I do, I’ll have a little giveaway! See the details below. (A cheater quilt is a panel of printed fabric that looks as if it was pieced with different fabrics.)

The quilt with the most votes will be announced on July 7th and if it’s mine, I’ll let do some picking for me and choose one winner from this blog and one from my sewing blog! You are free to enter both and you have until the end of the day, July 6th ET to do it. :) The winner from each can choose between a $20 coupon to my Digitals store or 1 yard of your choice of fabric (on quilting cotton) from my Spoonflower store or any fabric based on a patterned paper in any of my digital scrapbook kits!

Here is how you can enter and get your name in a few times!
  • Post a comment below letting me know you voted!
  • Become a follower of this blog and leave a separate comment letting me know you did (or if you already are).
  • Tweet a link to this blog post and leave a separate comment with a link to your tweet!

That’s it! Thanks for helping me out! :)

Also, remember to vote for me (Sarah B) or whoever your favorite entry is over at Project Quilting by Saturday!

(If I don't win at Spoonflower, I'll still have a little giveaway of some sort. :) I just haven't figured out what yet!)
