VOTE on Nursery Versery

I knew I'd get myself into a pickle when it came time to choose finalists for our Nursery Versery Contest.  Several were so close that it felt like a toss up.  At least I only had to narrow it down to 3 and you all will take it from here!  Here are the 3 finalists who I feel used Nursery Versery to it's utmost potential presented in no particular order...

Wholecloth Quilt by Bijou Lovely

Simple and perfectly delightful.  Holly's wholecloth quilt makes use of the Penny Patch print in Purple to create a postage stamp beauty without all the piecing.

She quilted with a variety of decorative stitches, which really show off from the back.

I'm loving the happy, playful vibe!  See more at Bijou Lovely.

Activity Mini Quilt by Plum and June


It's the 3 Little Pigs and a big, bad wolf, plus sweet houses of straw, sticks and bricks.  What a wonderful way to use Heather Ross' Piggies in green


The house collage is a pocket, home to three little pigs on fabric ribbons.  Let's hope each one stays safe from that wolf while baby plays with this activity stroller quilt!  The little taggies extending off to the sides are a nice touch...


As is the purple Countrymice flap on the back, that lifts to say "Hi".  Perhaps soon to be baby's first word?  See more at Plum and June.

Nursery Hoops by Lilybird Stitches


Nursery Versery's light pink colorway ended up being a perfect match for Meg's nursery.  She started with the clock, which features the Penny Patch print in green set against some pretty hand stitching.


Next up an "L" for baby Lily and a heart hoop for my favorite mice family.


Then, three more hoops to round out her collection.  I particularly love that pennant hoop with a spider just dangling into view.  See more at Lilybird Stitches.

  3. I am so excited and flattered that you chose mine to be in the finals! This was such a fun challenge and I really enjoyed seeing what everyone did with the fabric. I'm so glad my fabric arrived in time for me to enter AND that my sewing machine waited until the very last step before it broke down! Thanks Rachel!

  8. I have been so inspired popping over to new blogs and seeing their lovely creations. Well done to all the entrants. I certainly would have found it hard to choose but these three are quite special. Thank you for hosting a great competition btw.

  11. All three are very special. Patience needed to decorative stitch the postage stamp quilt, Imagination abound for the 3 little pigs and a gorgeous idea and selection for the hoops looks so pretty over Lily's crib.

  13. All of the projects are wonderful. Congratulations to the finalist, but more so, an appreciation to all those who's love of sewing/crafting/quilting inspired them to contribute their creations. I enjoyed looking at the three and all are so different, it's hard to judge. I honestly can't say that there is a clear cut winner. I did cast a vote for ONE entry, but only because there wasn't an option to vote all three. Can there be a "tie"? All three of them deserve kudos!

    All projects are very nice, the three little pigs is very original, but I love is the lily stitch.
