Viewers' choice winners!

DRUM ROLL, PLEASE!!!
 
Announcing the winners of the 2014 Pets on Quilts Show!

After much counting and recounting for accuracy, we have determined the winners of the Viewers' Choice Awards for the show! Let me tell you, we had some close races for a couple of these categories!

I know you are on the edges of your seats, awaiting the results, but I really must thank everyone who played a part in this marvelous show -- we have so much fun every year!
We can't do it without our fabulous sponsors:











 
 
(Waving) Thank you so much, sponsors! We love you to pieces!
 
And of course, we love all of you, too -- the folks who entered and hopped around and gave us all such a wonderful party to attend! It's great fun each year to see your pets and your projects!
 
Now, here we go!
 
The winner of the hotly-contested "Dog on Quilt" category is #56, PugMom!!
 
 
The PugPack can be proud, since their charming faces won Mom the Fat Quarter Shop gift certificate! I bet she will be shopping soon! Congratulations!
 
Next, the "Cat on Quilt" category was a really tight race, between the lovely Gracie at Three Cats Ranch, and handsome Moe, at Vrooman's Quilts . . . and Moe was the winner by a whisker!
 
 
Sharon does lots of pedal to the metal piecing, so I bet she will love what Mr. Random Number Generator chose for her prize -- the Reliable iron from Kelly at IHAN!! Congrats!
 
We've never had a tie before, but this year we are awarding two prizes in the "Other Pet and Quilt" category!  Number 73 and number 79 are both horses and they got the same number of votes!!
 
 
Murphy and Speedy were both quite handsome, and Mr. Random chose prizes for their humans:
 
Murphy's mom wins the Green Fairy gift certificate, and Speedy's mom wins one of the gorgeous Hoffman Bali Pops batik collections, the Sparrow colorway! Congratulations! 
 
For the category of Dog Themed Quilt project, our winner is #71 Sweet-labs (Sorry, sweetie, blogger won't let me put that extra "b" on the name!), who blogs over at Piece Happiness Together.
 
 
Isn't that adorable? Congratulations on a great job, and also on winning the great package from Jacquelynne Steves' the Art of Home!
 
Now we come to the Cat Themed Quilt category; our winner is #54, Missy! Congratulations, girl, you rocked that wall-hanging, and the voters loved it!
 
 
Mr. Random Number Generator says that Missy's prize is the Clever Tools Grip and Stitch set!
 
Last, but not least, we come to the Other Pet Themed Quilt. This category was a hard-fought one, with several contenders. We had some fabulous entries, don't you think? We are announcing a victory for #45, Belinda at the Seam Rippers!
 
 
Congratulations, Belinda! Mr. Random chose jelly rolls from Penny Cottons for your prize! Woot!
 
Once again, we salute our incredible sponsors and the wonderful community of quilters and animal lovers around the globe that participate each year in our show. We are grateful -- we couldn't do it without you!
 
We have more prizes to give away, and we are putting Mr. Random to work, to award the rest of the winnings in random drawings . . . all of you who participated, voted, encouraged with comments, and gave us assistance with PR . . . all of you are eligible!
 
Give us a little time, and we'll announce those exciting results!
 
Love,
