  3. Is it okay if we've already starting making before this announcement? I've got a top done that still needs quilting/binding that I would love to enter!

  4. No problem Krista. You can enter anything you have ever made from the Fat Quarterly Issues.

  5. Can I enter the quilt I actually made for Fat Quarterly? No? Well, it was worth a try...hahaha! ;)

  6. You are allowed two entries- one for each category?

  7. Also- deadline? I think I am missing it.

  8. I see it now. Thanks Shirley!

  9. I have a quilt to enter, I just can't decide on which two pictures to send :)

  10. Sounds like a fun competition. Sadly, I don't have a subscription. But I'll try to help increase awareness.
