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:
This is day #30 of the #30daysofquiltdesign with @stitchedincolor and @gothamquilts! I actually saw someone making a couple of these blocks the other day! My thought was to make it one big block. I couldn't decide if it should be two colors or four. I don't know if I would make it like I did when I doodled this in class back in middle school, and just wing it. Or if I'd want to have precise measurements. Either way, it could be fun. Thanks for the great challenge. It has been a lot of fun! I hope to make several of my designs at some point. #30daysofquiltdesigncompleted
