Pantone Quilt Challenge: Radiant Orchid – Winners!

Pantone Quilt Challenge: Radiant Orchid – Winners!

orchidbutton1

First of all, I want to say that Adrianne @ On The Windy Side and I are both blown away at all the beautiful entries that were submitted to the challenge. We tried to visit each and every one of you – hopefully we didn’t miss anyone!

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. 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!
