Our Dahlia Panel Challenge Winners!

Three amazing entries came back into the shop from our Dahlia Panel Challenge, but they were all lovely and brightened up our shop as they hung in our classroom this month for all to vote on :)  This entry was from Margaret Pipp!

Every participant used the panel in a different way, and each entry was so creative!  Margaret stitched up a large Dresden Plate center piece, and added some adorable little nests and insects from some cool fibers. Here are some close up shots of some of the little details on Margaret's project :) 

This one was made by Barbara Lanore.  She used English Paper pieced hexis to border her large dahlia photo.

This entry is from Betty Enselein.  She used several of the techniques and products she learned about in Amalia's Make it Fun from A to Z Class art series :)

They were each amazing, and the voting was very close.  But the Viewer's choice winner was Betty with her Texture Magic Dahlia!   Betty won a thread assortment worth over $100.00, and Barbara and Margaret were the runners up and received a smaller thread gift for join in on the fun :)

Thanks to everyone who shared their creativity, and all who cast a vote for their favorite, we had a fun time with this project :)

Enjoy the day!
