Save a UFO Finalist!

Been wracking my brain all day trying to remember if I've ever
won anything of value in a contest before. 
Hmmm.... nothing seems to come to mind except a poster contest
at my elementary school when I was in the fifth grade. 
Now that I think about it, 
I believe the prize was a whopping three dollars.

Perhaps one reason I do not "win" prizes, is that I do not enter many contests.
Hmmm... yes that may have something to do with my odds of winning prizes.

Well anyway, 
I stuck my neck out on a limb the other day and entered my 
Homeward Bound quilt in the 
"Quilting is Murder - Save a UFO Challenge" 
sponsored by Quilting Gallery.
Participants were asked to save a UFO (unfinished project) 
from certain death by completing the project and then sharing the details of their story.
I'm happy to say I am one of the lucky finalists!!!

The winner will receive this newly designed Bernette 25 computerized sewing machine!
It features 155 stitch patterns, speed control, needle stop up/down function,
 stitch memory, 8 standard presser feet, and much more! 

Now this is the point where I need your help.
The winner of this contest is selected by popular vote
(which makes me a little nervous).
If you click on the link below
 it will take you to the 
website where you can view all the lovely projects and cast your vote.
Voting will close at midnight on Sunday, February 19th!

Thanks so much for your help!


  1. Congrats on finishing the quilt. I think you are already a winner. Good Luck. You have my vote.

  2. Is your quilt listed as "10 Year Old UFO"? I didn't see a Homeward Bound title. Congratulations on being selected as a finalist.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment! I appreciate hearing from you!
