Gratitude by Ellen Marcinowski

 Here's what Jeannie had to say about her pick:

What a lovely display of quilts and small projects. It is always fun to see what ideas people come up with. I really had a difficult time choosing a winner. One of the quilts that really stood out was Gratitude by Ellen Marcinowski. Love the white combined with the bright colours. Very fresh looking! Also your workmanship looks outstanding! Nice work Ellen - Congratulations!

Judy's Choice - A Three Month Subscription to The Bargain Lover's Club goes to Cathy Loos for King Tut.  
Cathy and I share a love of King Tut.  When the King Tut exhibit came to Toronto in the seventies I was lucky enough to win tickets in my grade school class.   I have had a passion for Egyptology ever since.  Cathy's quilt captures the colors and the feel of ancient Egypt.  The beauty of the wheels set against the gold background is remarkable.  Well done Cathy!

They were all winners it takes great imagination to work with so many fabrics
