Winners & Voting

Entries for the FQ reader design challenge have now closed.

A big thank you to everyone that entered, it has been great seeing so many different versions on the flying geese block. You can take a look at all the enteries at the Fat Quarterly flickr group.

We have selected four of our favourite blocks - but it is up to YOU to vote for a winner. Polling will close at the end of Sunday (27th), the winner will receive a 'Rounneries Layer Cake'.

Block 1: From Jennie at Sunflowerquilt

Jennie said: 'I call this block "Breaking Out". I originally designed it for the Pillow Talk Swap. I have never seen it anywhere else and I love the fact that it's symmetrical and a bit wild at the same time! Fabrics: background is Kona Charcoal and the geese are from the "Modern Meadow" collection by Joel Dewberry.'

Block 2: From Lisa at Upstatelisa

Block 3: From Angela at Banquopack

Block 4: From Tweedledee Designs
To vote, make your selection over on the sidebar.

Speaking of winners...the lucky 3 winners of the 'Castle Peeps' Giveaway are:

Pink Pack goes to: vada0427 said... If I was picking for myself, I'd want the green/brown colorway - saw an amazing quilt made with it just yesterday...but, my sweet daughters have declared that mommy has too much fabric for herself & that from now only they get to pick all the, for them, my choice would be the pink colorway so THEY can have a rockin' new quilt!

Blue pack goes to: Sarah N. said... I'd like the blue one. I would make a lap size quilt for an auction at my son's school. They are the Knights!

Green pack goes to: Kristie T said... Fantastic fabric. I'd use the brown and green to make curtains and add some patches to a mostly solid quilt for my son's room. He'll be moving to a toddler bed soon and this would certainly ease the transition.


  1. Congrats to all three Castle Peeps winners. Enjoy! Karen

  2. All the flying geese blocks are so creative; may the best goose win!

    Castle Peeps Ladies--congratulations you lucky dogs!!

  3. Thank you!! I am so exicted to have won the green pack. What do I need to do now?

  4. oh wow! thanks for picking my block for the top 4! I'm so flattered! These are all great! Tough choice...I don't even know which one I like the best. LOL.

  5. hey...whose time zone is it that the polling is already closed? LOL I didn't even know this was up until 3:00 pm my time on Sunday and I never received any notification about it. Hmmm...strange email blog entry. I always get those... couldn't vote for anyone (though to be honest I probably would have picked myself. ;) )

  6. I really like Jenny from Sunflowerquilt's block. It looks stunning in the colours she has used. Also a good block for a beginner to learn?


  7. I like block one. Take care and God bless, Cory

  8. All gorgeous. Poll is closed. I like block one for its simplicity and design elegance. Congrats to the winners!

  9. Yay! I am doing the happy dance about the pink pack! Let me know what you need from me so that awesome castle peep pack can come to its new home!
