Quilts + Favorite Color Winner

Last night at the Penn Oaks Quilt guild we had our challenge. The challenge was to make  small (8 x 12) quilts that will be used at our quilt show next year, encouraging people not to touch the quilts. This was mine, the baby looks a little scary.

This one was the winner and in my opinion the best one. Any time a quilt can make you laugh out loud is good! So sit back and I will show you the rest.....

Overall I think they turned out great and are so creative. They will be fun to hang at our quilt show and give people a little chuckle.

I did not forget about the giveaway, the winner is Helen Ernst! Helen you didn't leave an email address. I will give you a couple of day to contact me. I will pick another winner if I don't hear from Helen on Friday. Congratulations Helen!
Our final tally was:

Aqua- 22 Yeah!
Red - 19
Green - 12
Purple - 12   I can't believe purple tied for 3rd place!
Blue - 9   I thought this would place higher, didn't you?
Pink - 9
Orange - 5
Yellow - 4
Gray - 1
Back - 0
Brown - 0
White - 0
So there you have it, our very scientific poll. I very much enjoyed reading all 47 comments. I thank you for you opinions but I think we can agree we need all those colors or quilting would not be much fun with only one!



  1. Lol!! I love all those funny signs!! I was laughing the whole way through. It was interesting to see the colour results.

  2. I love all the do not touch quilts! Hope they do the trick.

  3. That is such a great idea! I love yours. I have to pass this idea to a friend who also has a quilt show.
    I like aqua but my poor pink......

  4. I think aqua took some of blue's votes. I know I would normally say blue, but aqua is my favorite shade of blue.

  5. Love the quilts! Your baby is cute! I definately would have pegged you as an aqua girl...but I think we are all in love with that color right now. Have a wonderful day! Stay warm!
    Hugs, Mickie
