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! 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!

I think we're going to take a nap after we email all of our winners so they can receive their prizes!!  Bear with me, and you'll get an email introducing you to your sponsor, so they can work out all the details!!

  3. Thrilled to be a winner, and Smitty is especially happy that Molly won. Thanks for sponsoring, Jacque. Best quilting event of the year!

  4. Dearest Snoodles,

    You have made an egregious typo in your blog. You announced that some nobody named Sally won, when you really meant to type MOLLY!!!! I am sure that you will appreciate my shining a Stella Light on this error.



  5. Looks like you had another wonderful show this year, Jacque. Hopefully, Molly and I will be back next year. With a bit of luck, Molly might even have a new buddy to join her on a quilt!

  6. Congrats to all the winners! What a great show, Until next year. A Big Thank you to all the sponsors.

  7. I am happy to have won from Barb of Bejeweled Quilts. Congrats to all of the winners.

  8. Congrats to everyone who won. Thank you so much Jacque for doing the hard work to make this wonderful show happen again, it's so nice to visit with old friends and make new ones. The terrible twins have again been told they won Best Doggos in the Entire World and of course demanded their prizes immediately after the photo shoot, there's a reason they are called the Terrible Twins, LOL
    Thanks again my friend, you are very appreciated!

  9. Congrats to everyone that participated whether you won or not. It was a great hop and so much fun.
    xx, Carol
