Sewing Our Wild Quilts: Our Inner Animal Challenge Finalists

26 Jan 2010


Our latest Reader Challenge "Let Out Your Inner Animal" left our editorial team, quite frankly, a little curious about our Quilting Arts audience. Seems many of you feel rather repressed by your status as homo sapiens, and if it were up to you, you'd be howling at the moon, channeling your inner tiger, rising to the commanding height of a giraffe, or proving to everyone that you are, indeed, the Queen Bee.
 
Kidding aside, we thoroughly enjoyed all of the entries that came in and will be posting all of the photos of your submissions in our Challenge Gallery the first week of April.

This decision to narrow the lot down to the following handful of artists to consider for print in Quilting Arts Magazine and travel to selected quilt shows was no easy feat. We truly are honored that so many people entered, and we hope that this humorous challenge helped to stave off the winter blues.

The following artists should send us their actual quilt entry, adhering to the challenge particulars. Please understand that we will not be able to publish all of the following artists, as we are constrained by page count; plus we need to see these quilts in person to better determine how they will appear in print. Having said that, we plan for all of the following quilts to travel with us at selected shows in 2010.


Congratulations to the following artists:

Clayton, Sue

Conley, Vicki

Cotter-Lemus, Kimberly

Hankins, Sandra

Hicks, Nancy

Hilbert, Jane

Hinkemeyer, Lisa

Mackay, Deborah

Manning, Sandi

McCall, Jeanelle

McCullough, Debby

Murphy, Roxanne

Pierson, Leilani

Pottmeyer, Terry

Schmold, Carol

Sharp, Linda

Watkins, Cindy

Weaver, Cami

Wisheropp, Lori

Zepf, Vivien


Thanks for playing along, everybody!
