Jay McCarroll Habitat Challenge Winners

The winners of the Jay McCarroll Habitat Challenge were recently announced on Generation Q Magazine's site.  Jay chose 5 lucky ladies from the guild as the winners.  Congratulations to Monica, Karen, Susan, Candi, and Anna!

The challenge involved using Jay McCarroll's Habitat fabrics to create a 12-inch (finished) block of original design.  The winning blocks are shown below, but if you want to know more, including what Jay had to say about each winning block, head on over to the Generation Q Magazine post about the challenge winners.  The blocks from everyone in the guild are going to be made into quilts that will be donated to victims of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit the Tohoku region of Japan in March 2011.

Thanks go out to everyone who participated, FreeSpirit for providing the fabrics, Jay McCarroll for being our inspiration and for judging the contest, and Generation Q Magazine for posting the story about the winning blocks.  We hope you all enjoyed this great challenge!
