Fat Quarter Challenge

And the winner is…..Tami Bradford! Tami was the only participant to complete her quilt and turn it in by the deadline. We’re sorry that there were no other quilts to vote for! Tami won a $50 gift certificate. Her magnificent design choice (she bleached her ugly fat quarter) created a stunning blue and gold wall-hanging that she has named “For the Love of Ugly.” Congratulations Tami!
