This type of quilt isn't really a quickie, and I'm a pretty pathetic quiltalong host (I've discovered) as I can't even keep my own deadlines. However, I think it's time to officially close things prize-wise. Any longer and this book is going to find a permanent place in my shelf and the fabric? Well you all know what would happen with that!
Denyse Schimdt Quilts was kind enough to share a hard copy of her latest book as well as a jelly roll of Chicopee. I did a random drawing from everyone in the flickr group who has shared a photo of their pattern, or their fabric, or any bits of progress on their quilts. Stitchliterate is the lucky winner of the book and Amy (aviva_hadas) has won the jelly roll. Congratulations gals!!
A few participants have finished their amazing quilts so I thought I'd share them to inspire anyone who is considering a text quilt. I love how each of these are quilted, too!
This is Heather's sweet baby quilt
Cathy's Proverbial Sunshine - so perfect!
Dana's beautiful quilt made for a friend in need of encouragement and inspiration.
And this is one half of an anniversary gift for Julie's husband - check out her flickr stream for the other half!
Thanks to everyone who participated and shared their progress and supported one another with suggestions and photo tutorials. Thanks also to the sponsors that provided prizes for us!
