An Online Community for Man Quilters
Dear fellow 'ManQuilters'
All 15 submissions are in from the Challenge #2 Finalist for the McCall's Quilt Design Star Competition and voting has begun!
There is a lot of talent in this group of finalist! But, I wanted to give a shout out to Carl and Stuart who did amazing entries for the first Challenge, it was a pleasure competing alongside such talent!!! Unfortunately, to stay in it, it is all about the votes and telling everyone you know to vote, and so on!!! I am now the last man standing and I hope to move along into the finals.
I would like to view my work as such, traditional methods with a modern aesthetic, clean, color conscious, not over designed, and designed to be used! A happy marriage between traditional and modern! My entry is entitled 'PLUCKED' I hope you all enjoy, and would want to make one of your own! It is a great scrap buster, and fairly quick to put together :) Below is the link to the voting site:
You may vote up to once per day through Thursday, September 8, 2011.
.....What was the challenge?
McCall's provided the Challenge 2 finalists with 10 Moda fat quarters, and gave them the following criteria for their Challenge 2 quilt tops:
* Must incorporate 8 or more of the 10 Moda fat quarters provided.
* Must have 50% (or more) of the quilt surface comprised of the fat quarters provided.
* Each of the chosen Moda prints must be identifiable in the design. There is no specific minimum size of each patch; each color must be identifiable in your uploaded picture.
* May not add more of the Moda fabrics provided. However, an unlimited number of additional different fabrics may be added.
Thanks again for all your continued support!
