2019 Pantone Quilt Challenge {WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT!}

The 2019 Pantone Quilt Challenge: LIVING CORAL results are in!

We think it goes without saying that every year, we continue to be blown away by the creativity you all bring to this little competition. Once Becca at Bryan House Quilts and I got the linky party live (after a, err, slightly rocky start), we were both pretty giddy as the entries started pouring in. SO. MUCH. TALENT.




Needless to say, Erika Bea, Lucy Tiffney, and Tula Pink had their work cut out for them! Funny story. While the judges were ultimately able to narrow down their picks, THE VIEWERS (in two instances) WERE NOT! That's right peeps. This year we have a record TWO dead ties in the Viewer's Choice category. Serendipitously, one of two (again, in each instance) aligned with the judges' selections, so in the interest of fairness we will be sending the prize to the quilt that had not already won an award. But you know, because Viewers' Choice is kind of a big deal, prize or not, we wanted to acknowledge both.


Thank you again to all the generous sponsors for supporting the challenge, year after year.
