    I was the same. One repeated comment on the obvious non-qualifying entries was simply childish finger pointing.

    Ah, you saw the evidence of the quilt police too. Sad that was a forum member ...
    K is for Karen .....................Cremation - My last hope for a smokin' hot body.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    I saw the quilt police too...smh! I just went and looked at some of them again and the mean, hateful posts...what is wrong with people??? Some of those non-qualifying quilts are beautiful and they are not going to be counted. No one is, at this point, taking likes away from anyone. When it comes to the actual voting that would be a different story. Chill and let M* work it out.

    I think everyone that made something for the IQ should take a bow...qualifying or not! There is a lot of work in those projects.

    My 5 year old put it all in perspective for me...as she crawled out of bed the other morning, having had her first night's sleep under her new quilt, she said, "Mommy, I was really toasty under that!" That made me feel so good because her room can be cold at night! And when I'd almost finished the quilt, and was laying it out for the first time, she stood in awe, saying it was beautiful and was so happy it was all her favorite colors and flowers.
    I am so glad that I took up this challenge now. I learned new ways of piecing, thanks to watching many of Jenny's videos and tried them with this quilt. I made a quilt from start to finish in under 2 months. My little girl has a quilt to cherish and wrap herself in, when it's cold. All good!
    This was the largest quilt I've done and while doing it, I thought, never again; it was too big and too much work. Now, thanks to my daughter, I think this is only the beginning, and there will be many more to come!
    This has been a great challenge for me and I am so inspired by the talent and expertise of many of the entries.

    I entered a top only, had fun making it and am pleased with the fact that I have had three people ask if I was going to sell it.
    I am a second year quiltmaker, haven't mastered FMQ and outside of charms sewn together this was my second challenge. I am sorry for those who worked really hard and are disappointed. I am sure that M* will figure out a new way to present the next challenge.

    By the way, has anyone ever put a price tag on their work? I could use some guidlines.
