The Old Country Store is having a Morton Masterpiece Contest.
The rules require that the entries have to be made from Jo Morton designed fabrics.
Somehow I managed to finish all the applique, quilt, bind and label my quilt with two days to spare. Yay! I sent photos of my mini A Bountiful Life (I named my version The Courting Quilt) and waited. I was kindly informed that my photos were received and a decision on the finalists would be made on the first of November. Then the deadline was extended for a week because of hurricane Sandy. More waiting on needles and pins. Then, miraculously, I got an email that I was one of the ten finalists! Obviously, I am thrilled!!!
These are the professional photos that Jan Mast from Old Country Store sent me:

If you go to Morton Masterpiece Contest HERE, you can click on all ten of the quilts and then select an area to enlarge and really get a close-up look at all of the gorgeous quilts. Scroll down to the bottom of the page when you are ready to vote for the link to the voting page.
Warning: It's going to be hard to decide!!!
A huge thank you to Karen Mowery for all of her encouragement, support and for designing the beautiful blocks!
