Wishing and hoping for Top 5

It's so interesting to see how some of the designs in the Connecting Threads fabric design contest are jumping up higher and higher in a single day. Some of the entrants have blogs, some don't, some are professional artists, some are not. There are an array of design there, enough to make you dizzy with color, and dizzy with the possibilities for projects.

My design is Laundry Day, I think it's a solid design. I think it's a great focal design and it was a joy to create. Not to mention that I've got some killer coordinates that I think will be exciting and fun paired with the focal or as standalone designs.

There is a single day left in the contest. Anything can happen; I've gone from holding second place for almost a week to 4th in a day and who knows, maybe I'll get booted by another design tomorrow and be totally out of the running. Or maybe I'll hold 4th place and be in the Top 5? It would be a dream come true and it's hard to think about coming close and not getting in the Top 5. Yeah, I'll be crushed. But if I get in, homemade brownies with ice cream for everyone!

My design is at this page: Click here to vote I'm the last design on the page under virginia o.

If I don't get into the Top 5, you'll find this design for sale at Spoonflower (the fabulous company where I have learned how to show what I can do...I'm self-taught and having designs that sell is a huge confidence builder). Come on by and take a look at my other designs, there is plenty there for quilters and crafters!

So wish me luck! hmmmm, I just realized that if I don't get in, I'll probably still have brownies and ice cream...I don't think I want to pass over a chance to have warm brownies with yummy ice cream.

Connecting Threads Fabric Design Contest

Oh, it's been a long time since I've updated this blog. No real reason to actually.

But yes, now I have a reason. I'm in design contest. And I'm hoping to get into the top 5 so I can be considered. The grand prize winner gets $2,000.00, a licensing deal that pays royalties on the fabric sold and free yardage.

My design is Laundry Day. It's here at Connecting Threads, it's the last image under virgina o.

That's what the design looks like. A sweet quilting focal fabric. I would appreciate any votes you might have for this design. I'm up against some good designs and competitors who have huge followers on their blogs. So if you've stumbled upon this blog because you've searched for quilting fabric come on and vote!
