Announcing our 2018 winners!

It's time to announce our winners! Didn't we have a wonderful show? From rescue kittens to a photo-bombing cat, and from dogs that hog the covers to those that love to pose on our best quilts, I just love seeing all these pets each year!

Let's get started!

First, let's look at the "Dog on Quilt" category . . . It was a fierce battle between the lovable Molly and her new bud, Rex, and the cuddly Sheltie snoozing on the purple quilt!

Teddy Bear wins!

His favorite quilter, Michelle T, wins the cool Bark Box for her Flikr photo of her photogenic pup! Congrats! (All of you pup-lovers need to stop in at BarkBox and check out their awesome boxes! Click on that link to travel there!)

For the "Cat on Quilt" competition, the sweet rescue kitten, Tater, gave Alfalfa and Darla a real run for the money! Little Tater is adorable, but the duo with the fairy tale stories got three more votes, so congratulations!

Alfalfa and Darla's favorite quilter is Cathy, and the random number generator matched her up with this beautiful  Enchanted jelly roll from Green Fairy quilts!

Our last category was Pet-themed quilts, and this was another hot competition! Sharon Vrooman's gorgeous custom design almost beat Rebecca's "Feed the Cat" -- but in the end, Rebecca's hungry feline from QuiltingInAPolarBearGarden takes the prize!

Rebecca will receive one of the Hoffman Fabrics packages; there are thirty-three fat quarters in the bundle!

I sure do wish that we could give each and every contestant a prize! They were all so cute! (I mean, seriously, who can forget Bernini and his leap into stardom, right?) And y'all have outdone yourselves with your quilting projects!

We have five more prizes to award, so let's encourage Mr. Random Number Generator and see who wins!

Barb at Bejeweled Quilts is providing some Island Batiks fat quarters and a pattern from her shop to one of our winners!

Gayle is the winner! Congratulations!

Jacquelynne Steves is providing two of her awesome patterns to a random winner!

Nikki Moshier is the winner! Congrats, and thank you for your efforts on behalf of shelter pets! I hope you see this post, because there's no email on your Google Plus page! (Leave me a comment on how to email you, OK?)

Hoffman Fabrics provided two of those lovely fat quarter bundles.....let's see who wins the second one!

It's Stephanie Lauro! Congratulations! (Same problem here with a google plus page, I hope Stephanie checks this blog post and emails me. Or leave a comment with your address to email a message!)

Our good friends at the Fat Quarter Shop said we could pick two winners! They will each receive a certificate for $50, so they can shop all the notions, fabrics, and more!

Our winners are Karen in Breezy Point, and Mangozz! Yay!!

Thank you so much to our wonderful sponsors who make it possible to have great prizes for our annual party! Please make a point to click on those links and visit our sponsors -- they have wonderful products and service, so check them out!

I'll be connecting everyone (except the google plus peeps) with their sponsor via email, so that the prizes can go out -- should someone not respond, we will draw another winner. Be sure and check your emails!

I hope that everyone had fun, and enjoyed meeting all of the quilters and their pets! Let's do this again next year, OK?

And please......if you and your family need a pet, give a shelter pet a forever home. And support your local shelter with quilted mats and pads for the pets who live there, hoping for their new family!

I am so happy to hear from you! I try to respond to all comments, but lately blogger has made that difficult! If you do not receive a reply, it may be because your profile is set on "no-reply". Edit your profile, and click "show my email address" and we'll be able to talk!
Please do not leave links to un-related blogs or products. That is not good etiquette and they will be deleted! :)
