Another Contest Entry...

Well...actually two contest entries.  Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts is having a contest ending November 30 using their new Aurifil threads and the included mini-charm pack of 2-1/2" squares of their new Somerset line.  She is challenging contestants to design a quilt (must be an original design), using only the thread, mini-charms, background and a border fabric.  She will pick the winner/winners and they win various prizes, including the possibility of having their quilt pattern published.

Kimberly, from Fat Quarter Shop, is adding to that challenge by hosting her own contest in which you can use that original quilt to enter, but the stipulation is you have to buy the Aurifil Thread Pack from her shop.  This one is a "most votes" contest and the top three winners receive a $100 gift certificate to her shop.  I'll let you know when they post the top 10 quilts for a vote.  I'd be so excited if one of them is mine!  :o)

I drew/designed my quilt using EQ7 and EQStitch (of course, LOL).

I call it Butterfly Bliss.  It measures approximately 24" x 24".

Fingers crossed,

After recently finishing a butterfly applique quilt myself, I have a soft spot for anything butterfly. I love how you have used hearts for the wings. I think you have certainly created a winner! Thanks for sharing.

Love it!! I don't know if you remember but I am very partial to butterflies. Good design choice. I hadn't seen the fabric collection before but like it a lot. I think I will add it to my stash.

Great job Sue! Let us know when it is time to cast our vote. You have mine. Love to you, JJ
