Celebrate Good Stitches ::Voting::

**Voting is closed**

Ok, everybody, I need your help!  I asked each circle of do. Good Stitches to submit their favorite 2012 quilt for a Best of 2012 contest.  One circle will receive the honor of Best of 2012, when their quilt receives the most votes below.  Marmalade Fabrics has donated a sweet prize too!

This is a public vote, open to everyone everywhere.  To see a quilt better, just click on the image for the larger view.  They always look fabulous full-size! 

Now, this is going to be hard.  There are so many amazing quilts!  But, which one do YOU like best?

Voting closes midnight, December 13th.  Order is randomized.  Updated 12/14 with embedded pictures of each quilt for our viewing pleasure:

  1. That's a tough choice. Well done everyone. They're all so beautiful.

  2. there are so many beautiful quilts! do you have any idea how many have been donated in total rachel???

    1. Haha, nope! I could count, but I haven't. Anyone could take a gander at all the photos we've collected of finished quilts over the years at this group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/dogoodstitchesfinished/

  3. I can't help but be so impressed with how many circles have been generated from the beginning. Great job, Rachel! It starts with leadership and you've obviously done a great job. On another note, everyone has done such a great job at their part. The quilts are so stunning and creative. Some of the quilting is so impressive, wow! Hard choice for sure!

  4. A very cool group of quilts. Thanks for sharing.

  5. They are all beautiful however this one struck me from the first moment I saw it.

  6. These are all so gorgeous - so hard to pick just one :-)

  7. Come On Wonky Pinwheels!!!!It is so pretty!

  8. So many beautiful quilts! I could easily have picked any one of half a dozen. Congratulations to everyone involved :)

  10. They are all beautiful!!It's really tough to pick just one!:)

  11. Jennifer - your work is truly a work of love! So proud of you. Mr & Mrs B - good luck!!!!

  12. That was so difficult to choose - all lovely and colorful.

  13. very hard to choose. Such wonderful quilts.

  14. These are all stunning quilts, which makes the voting so tough! I think they're each all the more beautiful, rich, and layered by the many hands that have worked on them. The small quirks in each individual block and subtle shifts in color/ print give each quilt a life of their own. It's a very difficult quality to reproduce without having the benefit of a circle of talented quilters! Well done!

  15. All deserve a prize , well done everyone .

  16. That was a hard vote! They're all beautiful!

  17. So pretty and inspiring... my "to do" list just got longer...

  20. Beautiful! Quilters are such artists!

  21. Simply beautiful quilts! You all should be so pleased with the results...they are simply stunning. So hard to choose.
