Day 2 of the winner announcements of the Tiny Quilt Challenge sponsored by American Made Brand. Yesterday we announced the 3 winners in the Pieced Division, and today we will honor the 3 winners in the Junior Quilter Division. For this special category, we were thrilled to open up the challenge to ages 18 and below, as to encourage the next generation of quilters and sewists to show off their amazing talents and skills. Judging from the following winning entries, I’d say we have a fresh crop of rising stars ready to shine in the quilting world!
3rd Place Winner: Wacky Spool by Autumn
Crazy piecing forms the design of these ‘thread spool’ blocks, with savvy inspiration taken from an quilt image found on Pinterest. Framed in light blue to compliment the vibrant color-blocked piecing on the ‘thread spools’, this lovely design highlights the rich colors found in the AMB cotton solid fabric palette!
2nd Place Winner: Beach by Eve
The quilter’s own interpretation of her love for the ocean! A border made from crazy piecing in shades of watery blues frames a strip-pieced heart applique. Crazy quilting adds texture to the heart of this quilt.
1st Place Winner: Morning Sunlight by Willow
A patchwork background in greens, blues, and grays serves as a starting point to highlight the clever clothesline design at the forefront. An appliqued sun shines down on various articles of rainbow-hued clothing hung out to dry. Yarn and decorative embroidery stitching in the ditch add yet another layer of interest.
Stellar job, ladies and Major Congratulations!!! Check back tomorrow here on the Works as we show off another round of winners from the Tiny Quilt Challenge!
