2020 Virtual Challenge - Viewer's Choice Winners!


Welcome to our Viewer's Choice Winners announcement for our 16th Annual Challenge!

While this year's Challenge may look different, the wonderful quilts & blankets submitted were made with just as much love as always by our wonderful Volunteers. 


Over the last week, 54 visitors each voted for their two favorites in the following categories:
  • Pieced Quilts
  • Appliqué Quilts
  • Yarn Blankets

Appliqué Quilts & Yarn Blankets each have two Viewer's Choice Winners. Pieced Quilts has three because we had a tie!

Winners will each receive a $25 Gift Certificate. All prizes are Viewer's Choice. Osie will be contacting the winners, so watch your email!

Quilt winners will receive a certificate from either Honey Bee Quilt Store (Austin, Tx) or Poppy Quilt N Sew (Georgetown, TX). Thank you to Honey Bee & Poppy for sponsoring our Challenge by donating these lovely prizes!

Yarn winners will receive a gift card to Hobby Lobby.
