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:

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