First Quilt Design – Contest Winner

I fell of my chair this week when I received an email from threadbias congratulating me in being a runner-up in their quilt design contest. Well, imagine my surprise when they actually posted the results yesterday and my quilt design was in fact the grand prize winner!!!

This was my entry that won. Alyssa Thomas, the designer, posted a wonderful blog explaining why she choose it.  I am so thrilled, and on cloud nine.

I have been playing around with this design. I tried the design with solids, specifically Kona Sunrise. I really like it with solids and think it would be a fun, fast quilt. I actually have the Kona Sunrise charm packs, so I think I will add this to my to-do list.

      I do too. One thing I was thinking about was a design that I could sit down and make the top in a day. I think you could do that with this one. I was thinking mini charm packs for the the center pieces 🙂

      It might be a while yet. My to-do list is so long :-(….at least I am working on two quilts at the moment that were my designs so its not all bad. My mind is just racing faster that I can sew – again not a bad problem to have. 🙂

      Thank you. I now will just have to find a place to put it all. I am running out of fabric storage space – I will just have to find the time to sew more 🙂

      Me too – I love the solids. I am trying to think of ways of bumping it up on my to do list (although the realization on the # of WiPs has me reconsidering :-))

    Congrats! this is lovely and I can see it with solids or with prints. I love that it is very minimal and would be open to other sizes and color. Great job.

      If I ever make it :-)…..Of course, at the rate I am thinking of designs at the moment compared to the way I sew bigger projects I may need a sewer/quilter. I get so nervous when I send out a pattern to you guys to test, so I am ecstatic when you guys come back with things made up and looking so cool 🙂
