Viewers' Choice Winners!


Padsworth here, and have we had the fun, here at the Lilypad! There are so many cute pets out there, and you special peeps have shared their photos and their stories with us!

For that we are so very grateful.

We're grateful, too, that so many of you spread the word, voted, and took part in the Padsworth Project -- and some of you said that you will keep on going with it! Sweet! We are going to see if we can adjust the linky party to keep it going all year!

The voting was tremendous -- the contestants were adorable -- the competition was amazing!

And we have winners to announce!

So here we go!

The coveted title of Best in Show for Dog on Quilt went to none other than Sweet William the Scot, whose loyal supporters pushed him past the other entries to a win!

Take a bow, Sweet William!

Sweet William won the wonderful Beam N Read!

We can just bet that his momma will get a lot of use from that - it's a pawesome and useful thing to have around! Check out that linkie to see all that you can do with it!

Next, we had a spirited competition for the title of Best in Show for Cat on Quilt. The winner (winners) are the adorable rescue kittens from Sew and Sow Farm! She called the entry "Homeless no More" and we were captivated by the story and the kitties!

These cuties won the e-certificate from Fat Quarter shop for their momma! (She notes on her blog that they are now happily placed in their forever homes!) Fat Quarter Shop is one of our pawesome sponsors, so check out that linkie for your fabric, pattern, and notions addiction, er, wish list, er, requirements!

Jan also participated in the Padsworth Project, and we are over-the-top happy about that!

Talk about a landslide victory! Wow! This little pet really stole the show for the Best in Show for Other Pet on a Quilt! They're cheering for you, Josephine!

We enjoyed her fun post, too! Josephine made it possible for her momma to win that fabulous Reliable Velocity V50!

The next category was Best in Show EQ-Designed Quilt -- we didn't have too many entries in this category, but the overwhelming favorite was Sew Cal Gal's Cats Playing on the Grass at Night quilt!

She is the original "Pet Show Proprietor" and turned the show over to us at the Lilypad. We've loved hosting it!

SewCalGal's prize is the lovely bundle from our own blog sponsor, the Quilt Kit Market! They have purrrrfectly incredible sales on their kits, and you should definitely hop over there and check them out! There's a linkie for you right there!

We seem to have a lot of folks that love their Scotties, because Ranger is the winner of the Best in Show Art Quilt!

Ranger's momma wasn't sure if it was an art quilt or not, but her voters overwhelmingly thought so, and we do, too. It had lots of fun embellishments and bling!
His momma won the e-certificate from Martingale! I know she will enjoy picking her prize from the vast selection on their web site! Check out that linkie and you will be amazed at all the wonderful things you find there. 

Our last category was hotly contested -- in fact, only two votes separated the first and second place finishes in the Best of Show Pet Themed Quilt! 

The winner (by a whisker) was "Love Me, Love My Cat" submitted by Gracie and Smitty, and by their purrrrsonal staff, Barbara at Catpatches!

Gracie and Smitty will have a new batch of fabric to inspect, since Mr. Random picked a Hoffman "Crackers" layer cake for their momma to use!

You can see more of the lovely fabrics that Hoffman offers, by clicking on this linkie! 

(By the way, that is how all of the prizes are awarded here at the Pet Show. We work Mr. Random Number Generator pretty hard!)

Congratulations to all of the Viewers' Choice winners for 2013!  Enjoy your prizes!

We will take a break and then get back to work on a post awarding the random drawing prizes. . . there are so many prizes, from so many wonderful sponsors, that it will take a while to get it all sorted out! We'll be back soon with the announcement!
