Marie Schmidt, of West Union, South Carolina, entered her quilt, "Watercolor Wreath", into theQuilterCommunity.com January Quilt Of The Month Contest and won a wonderful collection of fabrics from Classic Cottons.

Every other month, www.thequiltercommunity.com has a Quilt of The Month contest, where members can enter their favorite quilt to win a great prize sponsored by various shops and quilting companies. Visitors to the website then vote on their favorite, similar to the viewers' choice at a quilt show.

Marie was encouraged by a friend to enter her quilt in the Quilt Of The Month contest, where Classic Cottons supplied the prize of $150 worth of their fabrics. Lo and behold, when Marie won and received her fabrics from Classic Cottons, she was very pleasantly surprised to find (in her mailbox one day) 4 yards each of 10 different fabrics, and also a whole bundle of fat quarters, worth well over $300! Needless to say she is a very happy quilter.

Why don't you enter a quilt in the next contest? The March contest entry deadline has been extended until March 10th, so if you are a Premier Member, send in a picture of your favorite quilt today!

Past prizes have been supplied by the following companies:

FreeSpirit Fabric www.freespiritfabric.com
Patches, etc www.patches3.com
Everything Quilts, Inc www.everythingquilts.com
Pieceful Quilting www.piecefulquilting.com
Quakertown Quilts www.quakertownquilts.com

See the Past Winners!

The next Quilt Of The Month Contest will be sponsored by The Fat Quarter Shop www.fatquartershop.com, who will supply the Paris Flea Market group of fat quarter bundles.
