Go Laura, Go Hadley, Go Marianne

Well three of my quilting friends have hit the jackpot in Amy's Creative Side's Blogger's Quilt Festival and are in the final five in their categories.  If you have a moment to vote for them, hop on over to this post.  Firstly my real life friend with the impossibly glamorous hair, Laura Needles Pins and Baking Tins with her to-die-for Brit Bee Star Beast quilt in the Group/Bee Quilt category.


And secondly mad as a bag of spanner Hadley Flying Blind on a Rocket Cycle with her fabulous rainbow made in cherry quilt in the ROYGBIV quilt category.


And finally, Marianne The Quilting Edge's  extraordinary Oakshott quilt in the pieced quilt category.  I confess this might be my all time favourite quilt ever and a little birdie tells me that anyone going to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham this year might just get a chance to see it in person on the Oakshott stand but that's not finalised yet.

  8. I've voted - the quilts this year have been great (unfortunately mine didn't make the cut ;o( )
    Oh you'll be chuffed if Marianne's quilt is in the show - I wish I could see it in person if it is

  10. I have voted and all three quilts that you show here were my selections from the finalists. BTW, I can't believe that your YouTube quilt didn't make it as a finalist. It is my favorite out of all the quilts submitted. My white-on-white handquilted Victorian made it in the handquilted category despite my terrible photographs. I am more than excited about it.
