Are we limited,to one pic per entry? Is a pic collage acceptable and/or advisable?

Kourtney Geers

Hi Lisa! When you go to upload your entry, you’ll see the option to share multiple photos. Feel free to create a collage if you’d like!

Jen B

In the instructions it says to tell you a bit about the project and if a craftsy class inspired it. The rest of the post is about pictures of our stashes, am I missing something?

I want to win I could use some #SecretStash…

Love Quilting

Madeline Knowlton

I have the same question about “project” as Jen B…but I did not see an answer. I probably will not be able to enter the contest…sadly, because in pure volume, I would very likely win. My things have been in storage since my husband died…including multiple tubs and boxes of fabric…however, I have managed to fill my bedroom where I am staying over the past three years with another huge stash of more than 35 boxes and tubs of beautiful fabric. I also have a stash of thousands (I am NOT exaggerating) of photos of quilts I would love to make! And my stash of sewing magazines….from quilting to smocking….would astound you!
I am hoping to get my things out of storage before summer, but not by March 15.

Linda Clark

I like fabric of all colors.


is there a way to make sure that my contest entry went through?

Nancy Mower
