Runner Up!

I can't tell you how hard it has been to narrow down the blocks to my favorites. That's like asking me if I like Ice cream or Ice cream. :o)  We went through and picked our favorites, then had to trim that group again and again. I wanted to pick 5 for you to vote on- but I just couldn't do it.

So here we have- the top 8!  :o)

This block is so cool! I can just imagine a whole quilt filled with these and the shadow play that would appear. Great Job!

The angles and color choices in this block made it a sure pick. I've already raided my stash to try more improv piecing in this colorway. Awesome!

I don't do angles. At least not like this. This block is so pretty, and not just because of the fabric choices. Again, a quilt filled with these blocks would make the most amazing patterns. Wonderful!

Love! Love! Love! See the litte fish in the middle and the owl on the top edge? Great use of color and fabric choices. Gorgeous!

Who doesn't love wonky houses!? As soon as I saw this block I had to look at the rest of the quilt. I want it!
Delightful and Fun!

This is a very pretty block. The colors and prints just spoke to me time and time again. Beautiful!

This block is on fire! The contrast in the colors and the wonky shape is eye catching. I have only worked with batiks once, but this block inspires me to do it again. Amazing!

I keep looking at this block over and over. The colors, the angles, the design- perfect star power. Superb!

ok friends, you know what to do. I've added a poll to the top right column of the blog, Cast your vote for your favorite. The voting will continue through April 1st and the winner announced on April 2nd.

The winner with the most votes for their block will win 1 yard of each print from the Hall of Fame fabric collection, designed by ME for Michael Miller.

The 2nd place winner will recieve a Fat Quarter Bundle of the same fabric.
The 3rd place winner with recieve a 10" square pack of Hall of Fame.

All other contestants will recieve a 5" square pack along with a Crazy Old Ladies quilt pattern.

Thank you to EVERYONE who entered! There is some amazing blocks on that flickr page. I know I'll be peeking back often for inspiration!
