Amazing sponsors! Twenty-four prizes!


It's been a lovely show! Lots of fun! We couldn't do it without all of you wonderful people and pets!

And our sponsors....wow! Twenty-four different prizes! (As much as possible, we will include links to not only our great sponsors, but also to the Flickr pages, blogs, and etc of our winners, so that you can have fun re-visiting them.)

Let's get started by announcing our viewers' choice awards, OK?

Envelope, please!

For the category of Dog on Quilt, number 15 just strolled away from the rest of the pack: Sami the Wonder Dog! Congratulations!


For the CATegory of Cat on Quilt, we had a hotly contested race -- Olive and Wilma tag-teamed the competition, and Kozmo utilized all of her super-cute-kitten skills, but the winner was: Molly! Huzzah!

For the category of Other Animal on Quilt, we had some awesome entries, from chickens to turtles (I think that is a first, this year!) but one entry just blew everyone else away: Resident Pet! Yay!!!


Then, for the category of Pet Themed Quilt, I think we had the most entries we've ever had in this category! The clear winner was: Michiko, for her beautifully rendered pawtrait of Hana!


Many, many thanks to all who participated; our numbers may have been down this year, but we had such great pets and quilts! I heard from many of you that you look forward to this show each year, and that does make me happy!

Now, it's time to announce the winners of our prizes!
