Kimber Pekora, a member of the CQMagOnline staff, is a finalist
in the "$100,000 Quilting Challenge" magazine contest. The judging is by NQA-certified judges. At the end of the year, the judges and the voting public will determine an overall winner who will receive the $100,000 Grand Prize.
Kimber is an accomplished stitcher who explores many avenues of embellishing
and stitching. We are proud to have her as a member of our staff. The $100,000
Quilt Challenge has ten categories of quilts, of which crazy quilting is one.
Each quarter one quilt from each category is chosen as a finalist, and Kimber's
quilt was chosen from all the crazy quilt entries during the third quarter. It
will be published in the August issue of the magazine. At the end of the year,
all forty finalist quilts will compete for the $100,000 Grand Prize, based on a
popular vote of the magazine's readers. As a quarter finalist Kimber has won a selection of prizes to be announced in the August issue of the "$100,000 Quilting Challenge".
Look for the August issue in a store near you, August 15, 2006.
