You Choose Quilt-Along: We Have a WINNER!

FEAT_QAL-Winner You guys! You have been voting up a storm since last week and the result was a photo-finish (or the quilt-along equivalent)! Over 500 of you voted and it came down to the wire: the Winter Table Runner was leading from Wednesday, August 6th through the middle of the day on Monday, August 11, when the Pinwheel Table Runner made a late rally.

Winter-TR-drop However, overnight voting made the Winter Table Runner from Quilt Sashings & Settings The basics & beyond the winner by a margin of just 12 votes. This is going to be a really fun project and we are really excited to get started on it with you all!
