Announcing Our 2012 Quilting Arts Getting Pet-ty Calendar Finalists!

21 Jan 2011

 Let’s face it: pet owners love our pets. My next door neighbor loves his labs so much, the only décor he has in his house relates to black labs--from every piece of wall art to the toilet paper dispensers! So it was no surprise to me that many quilt artists depicted their love of their animals with needle and thread. We had some hilarious entries, some very realistic portrayals of pets with expert thread painting, some collaged, and others a little sorrowful depicting the memory of a beloved pet. It was a difficult task to narrow the finalists down to the following artists and we want to thank everyone for participating!

 Congratulations to the following finalists:

 Brandt-Kreutz, Betsy

Brown, Nancy

Brubaker-Knapp, Susan

Campbell, Liz

Clayton, Sue

Cleary, Faith (both entries)

Conner, Susan

Encabo, Lisa

Hayes, Nancy

Hilderbrand, Pat

Kihne, Darlene

Kessi, LuAnn

Leedy, Loreen

Littman, Tonya

McIntosh, Amber

Packer, Jill

St. Charles, Cynthia

Sorem, Deb

Sowoda, Joan

Zeller, Nanette
