Welcome to the last event in the Year of Red and White Quilt Challenges, a virtual show of red/white quilts made in 2014 using either purchased or free patterns.  

Voting for your favorite entry in "this" Made with Purchased/Free Designs will begin on on the 20th and be open thru the  26th, when winners will be announced.   Simply bookmark this post and you'll be able to use the linky tool to vote for your favorite during that window and leave a comment on this post after you've voted, to get an extra entry to win prizes.

You can also vote  for your favorite quilt in the "You Made It/You Designed It" show where voting is opened on the 14th and runs through the 24th of October. When you vote for your favorite entry, using the linky tool to vote, and leave a comment on the respective show post that you voted, you get entered to win a prize!

This is a virtual quilt show for those that may have purchased a pattern or book, or used a free pattern, to make their red and white quilt in 2014.  Both Bloggers and non-bloggers will be able to share their red and white quilt projects that they've made in 2014, to also enter to win prizes in this challenge.

Challenge Timeline:  October 13th - 20th

Voting Timeline for this particular event:  October 21st - 26th

Please be sure to read the rules below, before adding a link to the linky party for this show:

Rules to enter are pretty simple:
1) Your quilt must have been made in 2014 using a free or purchased pattern.  It needs to have a red/white theme to it of any size and style (e.g. pieced, applique, machine embroidery, etc.).
2)  You can still enter this show even if you shared in the Make It! Challeng!  or other events.  Consider it an extra entry to win prizes, but this show is intended to show off those that used "free or purchased patterns" to make their quilts.
3) The intent is to have quilts finished to be in this show, but if your project is large and just has the top finished, that is fine too.  But please don't go rush to make a top of a mug rug and enter that this week. On the other hand, if you haven't yet made a red/white quilt this year there is still plenty of time to make one and enter it in this show.
4) Bloggers must have a post dated during the show (Oct 13th - Oct 20th) and are encouraged to reflect a link to this post, but that is not a requirement, I hope you will encourage your followers to come enjoy all of the entries too!
5)  Non-bloggers can upload to flickr and add a link directly to their photo entry (not a link to a group of photos), but your photo must be viewable to everyone.  Please refer to FAQ if you are not sure how to do this.
6)  Please recognize the source of your purchased or free pattern (e.g. who was the designer, name of the pattern or book, or source of the free pattern) if you know.  Consider including a link, when you can.  This info is intended to help those that may be inspired by your entry and want to make a similar project, as well as to help provide recognition for the respective designer.

As always, if you have questions you can email meemail address copy
