::Time to Vote:: Bluebird Sew Off

Bluebird Sew OffAre you a decisive type?  Sure about what you like?  Ready with an opinion?  Ok, good. I need your help!  Today we have to choose two winners, one from each category, for our Bluebird Sew Off.

Looking over your entries, I couldn't help but notice, being a color-oriented type, how many of us paired Bluebird's true blues with bright, saturated summer hues.  There's a little romper with sunshine yellow trim, a pretty set of potholders patched with grassy green, a simply perfect baby quilt with bright pink random squares, and more loveliness along these lines.

Blues are stunning all alone, but friendly to literally every other color.  With Bluebird we went bright!  It must be that these fabrics have an inherently cheery disposition.

Without any further ado, here are our finalists in each category.  Please be sure to vote for your favorite Quilt and your favorite Other entry.  Enjoy!

Voting open now through midnight, eastern time, on Wednesday, April 13th! Thanks for choosing your favorites! And thanks to everyone who participated. I know that the satisfaction of your finish is reward enough!


  1. I didn't see the little romper in the voting.

    1. Hey, Megan! You're right, the romper (adorable!) was not selected as a finalist. The romper was made by one of our sponsored contestants, who received Bluebird yardage complementary, but those sponsored contestants were not finalists by default. I didn't feel that would be fair. sorry for any misunderstandings!

  2. Wow! I would buy that purse if it was for sale...amazing work (all of it!).

  3. Ahh! Thank you! Fingers crossed!
    And the bird quilt is such a cool idea!

  4. Just incredible. All of them. I tried not to think to hard.
    The Sweater was very nice. All of these were just epic stunning!
    Well done congratulations to all of these enthusiastic and creative peeps

  5. They were all pretty great! I had a tough time deciding!

  11. I feel so honoured that I made it to the final voting - so many stunning projects! Lots of applause for everyone who managed to finish a quilt in such a short time, and they are all so amazing!
