Many of you know that we have been running a Mystery Table Runner contest in the past few issues of Quilter’s Connection. The big reveal – of the project and the randomly chosen winners – is in the Summer 2017 issue of the magazine. Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks to all who entered. It proved to be such a difficult task to choose the ‘best’ entries as we had originally intended, so we ended up throwing every name into a hat and blindly choosing the winners.
With well over 100 entries, there just weren’t enough pages in the magazine to publish all the wonderful photos. In fact, I don’t think there’s enough room in this blog post to share every single one of them, either! However, I did want to share with you our personal favourites – whether it was the creativity, the beautiful photography, the fabric choices, the unique quilting, or some entries where they just didn’t quite get it – there were many entries that struck a chord with the judges and the staff at QCMag!
There were a few ‘oops’ photos too, where the quilters missed something in the project instructions. We’re not going to name the quilters (save them from the embarrassment) but wanted to show you how easy it can be to make a mistake – and don’t we all know it! As for the rest of the images, if you click on the image, the name of the quilter appears.
This was so much fun – we’ll definitely have to do it again!
