Favorites from #30DaysofQuiltDesign

Here we are in the last days of our 30 Days of Quilt Design challenge!  You have through October 31st to complete and share your 30th design.  Are you nearly finished?  I have one more design to go!  Don't forget to add the tag #30DaysofQuiltDesignCompleted on your final design to be in the running for our grand prize:

On November 1st, I'll draw a random winner from among those who have completed the challenge.  Our lucky grand prize winner will score a fat quarter set of Slow & Steady by Tula Pink!  You can browse the whole collection at Gotham Quilts, our challenge sponsor.

The second part of our grand prize is sponsored by The Warm Company, makers of my favorite batting and other products I like to use as well!  Our lucky grand prize winner is going to be rolling in the good stuff.  It'll be winner's choice of Warm & Natural or Warm & White batting in a gigantic 90" wide, 40 yard roll.  So you'll be set to make a whole lot of quilts! 

Note:  Because this huge roll is quite expensive to ship, this part of the prize must ship to the U.S. or Canada.  Sorry!  If we have an international winner, she can designate a U.S. address, including the address to a forwarding company of your choice, should you like to arrange to have this batting forwarded to your international address. 


Now let's look at some of your designs from the past two weeks.  Here are a few that especially caught my imagination.  All shared with permission:

Even if you're not in Instagram, you can view all the designs via this link, #30DaysofQuiltDesign, right from your browser.

Gotham Quilts is sponsoring our challenge by handing out a $25 gift certificate to a random participant every two weeks.   Based on hashtag usage, I've drawn our random winner using Tint...


Congrats, QuiltDesignAtelier!   We'll be in touch!  Thanks to Gotham Quilts for sharing the fabric and thanks to all of you for bravely sharing your designs.

p.s. To be eligible for prizes, don't forget to include "@stitchedincolor" and "@gothamquilts" in your photo captions.  It also makes it much easier for me to catch your designs.  Also, don't forget to use #30DaysofQuiltDesignCompleted to tag your last design, so you'll be in the draw for our grand prize!

Happy Halloween weekend, all!
