Today's the day we posted the finalists on the Quilting Arts website, and we do it with mixed emotions. With more than 130 submissions, we were simply blown away this year, and the decision to narrow them down to the following was extremely difficult. We're genuinely thrilled for those who finaled, and also sad for those whose names don't appear below. We hope above all, that everyone had a lot of fun creating their quilts and will show them off with great pride!
Congratulations to the following finalists:
Natalya Aikens ("Watering My Garden")
Donna Anderson ("Selfish Alice")
Carolyn Carson ("Spring")
Tina Feakes ("Harvest")
Annette Reid Guerrero
Lisabeth Gutierrez ("Daisy Cottage" and "Unchanted Garden")
Tone Haugen-Cogburn ("Winter Pearls")
Mary Ann Herndon ("Lavender Layers")
Debra Svitil ("The Source")

To everyone who sent in a submission: We certainly loved looking at your artwork and reading the accompanying stories. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have such an amazing readership willing to share their art with us. Thank you!
Hope everyone has the opportunity to get into their garden this weekend.
