It’s up to you to decide which category your quilt best fits, read through the list for more information on each category. When in doubt, measure the perimeter, and add it to the mini, small or large category that it fits into. Each quilter may enter up to two finished quilts, each with it’s own post, in separate categories. Like last time, the linkys will not show your names, and will be randomly loaded for each viewer. This gives everyone a chance to be at the top, and for a more fair voting process! Once you have visited a link there will be a green check in the corner, to help you keep track of where to go next.
