Congratulations to all the winners!!! I was very excited to see so many names I recognize (too many to list them all here).  Two names I was especially happy to see were Karen Eckmeier (aka the Quilted Lizard) and Gloria Hansen (author of Digital Essentials book and much more!).

Karen won 2nd place in the Innovative Pieced category sponsored by Omnigrid for her quilt, My Stash At 50 (aka Log Cabin with an Attitude).

You can find this quilt on page 35 of Karen’s Layered Waves book.  You may also see more of Karen’s patterns and books available at SewThankful.

Gloria won 3rd place for Circles Collide and Honorable Mention for Whitley Decay in the Digital Imagery category sponsored by C & T Publishing.   If you’re interested in learning more about digital imagery in quilts, you’ll want to make sure you check out her Digital Essentials book.
