We are pleased to announce the winners of this year's 2016 Quilt Block Design Contest!
Our grand prizewinner is Terri Vanden Bosch of Doon, Iowa. As part of her prize package, Terri's incredible design, Point of View, will be displayed on a 17-foot sign outside of AccuQuilt Headquarters for an entire year. We are looking forward to seeing her design greeting us daily as we head into our offices.
Terri's prize package also includes a $1,000 AccuQuilt shopping spree, two round trip tickets to Omaha, hotel accommodations for three nights, and an array of fabric and thread to keep her busy creating.
Marybeth Pusillo of Marshalltown, Iowa is the runner-up and she designed Flying Petals. Marybeth's prize package includes two passes to the Let's GO! Quilting Retreat at the Country Traditions quilt shop in Fremont, NE and a $750 AccuQuilt shopping spree.
Reed Johnson, who designed the creative Grandma' s Necktie Garden, is the fan's choice winner. Reed will receive a Quilt in a Day Retreat pass, which includes airfare and hotel accommodations.
Our grand prizewinner also joins six other quilters who received honorable mentions for their designs. Those honorable mentions include Judy Best, Belinda Karls-Nace, Colleen Yarnell, Mary Kay Davis, Sonia Parham, and Susan Ragan.
Terri will be publicly acknowledged at the AccuQuilt Unveiling Event on June 9. She and many other retreaters from the AccuQuilt Let's GO! Quilting Retreat will watch as her quilt block design is unveiled. We look forward to meeting Terri, and we know she is excited to meet our special guest, legendary quilter Eleanor Burns.
Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you to everyone who participated in this year's contest!
Until next time...
