I am always thinking up a few fun things for the ladies. I have been told by some, that I need to let my brain rest but it seems that when I try, it keeps coming up with things to do. ha!
Over the course of the past few months I have had several of the women on the forum busy making a quilt to portray this photo. It was photographed by Leona, one of our members over at HGTV. She gave me permission to use it for this challenge.
There were no rules or boundaries that the ladies had to follow while creating their pieces. They were given complete free reign! Isn't that the best way to work?
I would love to show you what remarkable pieces the following 9 forum members presented for judging at the end of the challenge!
I called upon 5 of my friends and asked them if they would consider judging the quilts once the challenge was over and they graciously agreed. At this time I want to recognize each of them and say Thank You! once again!
Please give a big shout out to our judges!! We really appreciate them for taking the time to do this for us!
