McCall’s Design Star Contest

I received an email last night that said I had advanced to Challenge 2 in the McCall’s Design Star Challenge. I am waiting to hear what the actual challenge will entail – I will know by Friday at the latest – so stop back later this week and find out what I will be trying to do next!

A special thanks to everyone who voted for my quilt and left comments on the McCall’s site and here on my blog.  I appreciate all of your support and encouragement. This contest has been a wonderful experience.

I am a bit of a contest show “Junkie” – I do watch Project Runway, Dancing with the Stars, The Next Food Network Star, and…..   On Dancing with the Stars – the contestants have a professional dance partner to teach them the dances, etc.  Here is a question for you  – if you were in a quilting contest and could have another quilter (Someone who is on the national scene or someone close to home) to be your assistant, muse, guide who would that be and why?  Leave your answer below.

I’ve been blogged

A great thing happened today – I’ve been blogged!!

Erin Russek at One Piece at a Time gave me a mention in her blog post. Erin and I are finalists in the McCall’s Design Star Competition.  Erin does some wonderful applique work – pop over to her blog and check out her wonderful work. I have resisted applique but seeing her patterns just might push me over the edge to give it a try!
