Block Contest

So here's the deal- I wanna give away some fabric. LOTS of fabric. And it seems, based on all the comments, that you're willing to recieve said fabric. But picking random comments is getting a little boring for me and you, dontcha think? Instead I thought I'd have a contest.

Here's how it works.
All you have to do is design a quilt block.
You can make it in whatever fabrics you want and whatever style you want.
Your block does not have to be an original design.
It just needs to finish somewhere between 9" and 12" square.
(9 1/2" to 12 1/2" with seam allowances)
To enter you have to upload a picture of your block to the flickr group:
There's also a button link on the top left column of this blog.
Please post only one picture per block,
but enter as many blocks as you'd like.

The contest will run through MARCH 9th
(I want to give you time to make your blocks)
At this point my team will narrow down our favorites and list a poll here on the blog.
Then it's up to YOU to vote for the winner.
Votes will be tallied up and the winner announced on APRIL 2nd.

The GRANDPRIZE winner will recieve
1 yd of each print in the 'Hall of Fame' fabric collection!
(yes, you can get excited)

But don't worry, there's lots more fabric. I'm also going to have several FQ bundles to give away and
lots of Crazy Old Ladies patterns, too!

So, wanna play along!?

I can't wait to see what you make!  :o)

I hope it's okay, I entered a block I made last weekend.

I clarified the instructions on the blog.
The block doesn't have to be original design and you can enter multiple time.

Have fun!
