And, in case you are just joining the party, we are celebrating the completion of our first series of Theme works by sharing some light-hearted awards. Starting on October 12th, we will each post highlighting some of our favorite surprising and silly quilts. We invite our readers to think about what quilts you'd give these awards to and come back to let us know in the comments on those days. Everyone that leaves a comment on these posts goes into a draw to win some freshly minted postcards featuring the theme mosaic shown on our new blog button.

So far Gerrie has presented the "Also Ran" award and Helen has shared "The One I Wish I Had Made...". Coming up are:
  • October 14th: Kirsten: Separated at Birth
  • October 15th: Terry: Most Creative Use of Materials
  • October 16th: Diane: Most Likely to Get Pulled Over By The Quilt Police
  • October 17th: Françoise: Biggest Stretch of the Theme
  • October 18th: Kristin: How DID She Do That?
  • October 19th: Karen: Most Colorful
  • October 20th: Brenda: I Would Never Have Guessed (Biggest Departure of Style)
  • October 21st: Terri: Most Humorous
  • October 22nd: Nikki: Most Bling
  • October 23rd: Deborah: Most Unexpected
Welcome to the festivities - do leave a comment!

Every piece I see I think to myself "why didn't I think of that"! I have followed the progress and completion of the pieces over the last year and wish I could have been part of the group! It will be fun revisiting each month's work and throwing my two cents in the pot of comments.

I'm enjoying your daily awards. It is interesting to see the quilts from a slightly different and fun perspective.

I'm a silent reader and surely one of your greatest admirers since the project began. The button went right to my blog.
Thanks for sharing your work! I'm not a quilter, but I really enjoy each entry and each theme! :)

Minds thinking alike at a distance is really spooky. I visited the My Place exhibition in Melbourne and found 2 quilts very similar (to me)
Brenda's Tubaring and Judy Hooworth's 'Shift'. The samples on this blog are very similar.

Thanks for the button. I added it to our 12x12 project. I have loved seeing everyone's work and look forward to all the themed posts.
