Let's celebrate!

Our latest challenge quilts have started to appear online - only two to go! When we started this collaborative art quilt project a year ago, we had little inkling of how much fun it would be for us. We also hope our readers have enjoyed following our challenges with us.

The "reveal" of our shelter quilts marks the midpoint in our challenge timetable. To help us celebrate this milestone, we invite our readers to leave a comment by no later than 15 October (blog time) to go into a draw for a special set of notecards featuring some of our collaborative theme mosaics:

Dandelion Chocolate
Community Water
Illumination Shelter

While you are at it, you can vote in the poll in the sidebar. Let us know what is your favourite collaborative theme mosaic so far!

The latest quilts are inspiring as always! Well done to everyone for persevering and creating such lovely works. I find it's hard to keep the momentum going for a monthly challenge, and I appreciate the depth of response you all create for each theme! - Bev (www.postedstitches.com )

It is so interesting and inspiring to see what you have done, I love the mosaics where I can see them all together.

As usual with each reval - it is exciting to see each piece and read the thoughts each artist has regarding her work. Wonderful anticipation looking forward to the Mathmatics theme... PP

Thanks for sharing your work. I was really looking forward for your "shelter" reveal. It is very special that all of you allow us to get in on the thought processes you go through in creating for each new theme.

Great work, again! I love looking at the mosaics and trying to see who made which quilt - you can spot the personal styles in the different subjects. I will keep following you and wish you lots of inspiration in the next 6 challenges!

It's always a pleasure to see the new work - and a challenge to myself to guess at first look which artist did which.

A new day is not completely started until take a look at this blog. I admire all the work -- the effort, the thought, the struggle, the fun, the art.

I voted for this theme because of variations in "shelter." The works are excellent. However, I might have to change my vote because my deep down I love, love "dandelion."

The next theme will surely include one representation of "the beauty of the 'unit circle.'"

I enjoy seeing all of your work and works tremendously! Making a decision for one mosaic was difficult; I finally chose "water" because I like the color harmony.

I look forward to the second half of your project!
