Forest QAL contest winners!

I just received the email from our guest judge, Eleanor Grosch with the list of 3 winners of the Forest QAL contest. I was amazed by all the wonderful quilts which were submitted and I have no doubts that the judge had some difficult job to do, picking the top 3. Congratulations to all (and expect emails from me soon):

Sa juz wyniki konkursu Lesnego QALu! Wlasnie otrzymalam maila od jurorki Eleanor Grosch, ktora wytypowala 3 pierwsze miejsca (napisala tez male wytlumaczenie, czemu akurat te a nie inne prace wybrala). My u Julka wybralysmy zwyciezce na najlepszy uklad quiltu a Pan Random pomogl wybrac dodatkowe 3 nagrody. Serdeczne wszystkim gratuluje (maile powysylam jak wroce z pracy)!



#1 Grand Winner - Teje @ Nero's Post and Patch with her quilt 'Fantasy Forest'

Eleanor Grosch wrote: 'This one was my favorite overall because it broke out of the expected grid structure.  I love the creative use of space and color and the reference to the web of life.  The fabric choices are also really lovely and tonal.'

prizes:  
- $50 Fat Quarter Shop gift certificate
- $40 Marmalade Fabrics gift certificate
- $20 Pink Chalk Fabrics gift certificate
- 5 Kona cotton FQs from Szmatka Latka 


#2 place - Sarah @ {no} hats in the house with her quilt 'once upon a time... {in a forest}'

Eleanor Grosch wrote: 'The paleness of the quilt initially stood out as a detriment among so many colorful entries, but it has a lovely quiet beauty to it that allows me to see it as a whole first and then look closer.  Though it relies on the grid structure heavily, the muted tones let me see the abstractions used.'

prizes:  
- $50 Fat Quarter Shop gift certificate 
- $20 Pink Chalk Fabrics gift certificate
- 3 FQs from Flights of Fancy collection from Szmatka Latka


#3 place - Xementyna @ Robotkowy Kacik Doris with her 'Woodpecker tote'

Eleanor Grosch wrote: 'I love this sweet quilted tote bag design. The forest theme is carried out well throughout and the stitching looks really expert.  This one was hard to ignore as a quality item!  I love the clever and accurate use of texture and color in the fabric choices.'

prizes:   
- $50 Fat Quarter Shop gift certificate 
- $20 Pink Chalk Fabrics gift certificate
- Fiskars scissors from Szmatka Latka

  15. Zawsze bałam się łączenia różnych bloków (nawet o zbliżonej tematyce) w całość, ale ten pierwszy quilt jest dowodem na to, że wystarczy dobry pomysł i wszystko da się zrobić :)
