Congratulations to our winners!

With over 700 amazing entries, let me tell you the judging process was not easy! We enlisted the help of some pretty special modern quilters who all chose their top 10 faves (some couldn't choose between favourites and gave us way more than 10 faves or perhaps they just can't count). We collated the responses and then totally failed at choosing just 30 winners, so we added a few more prizes and came up with the final 39! And here they are!

Thank you again to our generous sponsors for providing over $1000 worth of prizes. Here's our list of prizes and recipients:
