Cool Melon Winners!

The votes are tallied!  But before I announce the winners, I want to say that I truly appreciate each of you who take the plunge and make mosaics for our contests.  Sometimes, especially the first time, it can be a bit frustrating to figure out the technology, and then feel somewhat vulnerable to put your creation out there.  But I can tell from our many repeat participants that once you get the hang of the process you crave the artistic stretch and easy joy of choosing fabrics.  I'm so glad you do, because I love creating these contests and viewing your results.  It's a lovely bit of community give and take!

Well, let's get to it.  Our Cool Melon mosaic contest, with fabrics and prizes from Gotham Quilts, has two winners:

You fell in love with this mosaic by Mariana (Coser Tejer Crear), no doubt charmed as I was by the way she weaved the melon greens towards murky blue.
