Unbelievable: Crayons challenge results...

Last year it was decided to organize Crayons challenge in our guild.
We draw two colors and had to make a quilt due June 9th, 2016.
I picked "Wild strawberries" and "Peach".
I knew I was going to use my "Twisted log cabin triangular in a square" with both of these colors.
But when the center was already made, I found in my stash a piece of real strawberries! So, I decided to expand it a little bit to a bigger square.
When that square was done, I couldn't resist to add piece of pretty batik in peach and strawberry mixed colors! I posted the process in my previous posts.
Finished it with Prairie points.
Today we had 23 quilts done!!! What a team of enthusiastic ladies we have!!!
Everybody in the guild could vote for the quilt they like the best, even those who did not participate. Three winners would have the prizes.
And results were unbelievable! Just unbelievable!
Numbers were equally shared for three quilts - EQUALLY! So we had three first places!

Yes, my "Strawberry patch" was one of those!
And the prize was: "Oh, wow!" book about miniature quits, a new pattern and a bundle of reproduction fabrics.
Thank you ladies for participating and voting for my quilt!
I also personally like this quilt, made by Rebecca Tucker, very well done and unique design!

All these Crayons challenge quilts now will be exhibited at our annual local show "Quiltes in the Boro" August 19-20, 2016 in Murfreesboro, TN.
