I read this on the guidelines page
Only one vote per IP address, so have your friends and family come by to cast a ballot! You can invite everyone to visit the contest page to vote and enter the give-away, including friends from web forums and Yahoo groups.
When I should have read this on the How to Vote page
One vote per person (based on IP address NOT email address), so have your family and friends cast a ballot for their favourite quilt

Today I have been working on some simple table toppers and they are simple, using strip piecing. The blocks for both toppers are made from two strip sets and then I added the borders. The pink and green table runner is made in exactly the same way for 50% of the construction. The designs I have used are BFC1109 Sheer Quilt blocks from BFC Creations. I will be doing the tutorial for these toppers and will have other layout possibilities in that tutorial.

Also just a reminder that voting for my sister and her class to win the iPad and
IPods finishes this Thursday September 26 Australian time. If anyone has a few spare minutes to vote again I know she would appreciate your help very much.
I am working on some Christmas table toppers using the Hidden Wells block technique of cutting triangles and hope to have something to show you in my next post or two.

I have also had an email from Heather Corbett who is the coordinator for the state of Victoria here in Australia for Comfort Quilts Against Cancer. Here is part of what she wrote about Comfort Quilts
It is an Australian-wide-internet based group started by a
lady in York. W.A. to make and distribute machine embroidered [lap] quilts to
ladies who have been diagnosed with, and are having treatment for, breast
cancer in regional Australia.
Perhaps this great new free design from Urban Threads called Daydream Love could be used on such a block especially if you stitch out the largest size.
