Congratulations to….. Maywood Studio’s Choice: Jan Beckert “This is a very pretty, and versatile, fabric line! I especially like the border stripes. It was hard to choose my favorites! I used some fussy-cutting and fabric rotation to make these blocks.” Randomly Selected Winner: Heartland Honey “Different layout of the rings. I love the way the colors work together and do a gentle fade from one into the other. I also like the pop of the dark background. I think it modernizes the traditional quilt.” Again, you can see all the fabulous entries in the original

Winners Riley Blake Designs couldn’t narrow it to just one, so they chose THREE winners! That means three lucky designers will receive a bundle of the Pin Drop fabrics – YAY!! Congratulations to the following people… Kim W: “My entry is called “Prismatic Pin Drop.” I was struck by how the prints in this collection, especially on the darker colors, look a bit like stars in the night sky, so I was inspired to do a star theme. Also, the thin points of these stars are a little like pins! There is no curved piecing in this pattern; the illusion of curves comes from the half square triangles meeting the triangle in a square blocks. The use of a pieced border allows the design to continue out

Jo Moury: Jo’s submission: Quilting and gardening are two of my favorite activities. Often I think of this little poem when I am out playing with my flowers. “A kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of the bird for mirth, One is closer to God in a garden than anywhere else on earth”. I totally love this fabric collection. In my little quilt I used a couple of the seed packets from the panel and drew applique shapes similar to Cherry’s fabric motifs to depict the flowers or veggies growing in my
