First of all, I want to say that Adrianne @ On the Windy Side and I are both amazed at the variety of entries and the different ways you all tackled Marsala. I’ve commented on all the entries at this point, and I know Adrianne is working her way through as well. Thank you all for the time and effort you put into this challenge!
We will be emailing winners here in the next day or two.
A quick note about judging. The judging process is truly a subjective one. Everyone has different tastes and favorites. Even if you didn’t win, that doesn’t mean your work is somehow lesser than the winners. It just means that something in a particular quilt spoke to that particular judge. If we all liked the same things, we’d all make the same quilts, and that’d be incredibly dull. We know our judges found the decision making process really challenging and were generally very impressed with the quality of entries. So please keep that in mind if you didn’t win! We think you’re awesome for entering!
So without further ado, here are our winners!
