2015 Textile Design Competition Results!

Amy-for-Instagram-TEXTILE-WINNER

The results are in for the P&B Textiles and Pattern Observer 2015 Textile Design Competition! After reviewing the additional coordinate from each semifinalist, the P&B Textiles team has chosen their winning collection! I am thrilled to announce that Amy Reber won the grand prize, a licensing contract with P&B Textiles, as well as lots of goodies from our sponsors, including:

  • Accuquilt – Go! Baby Fabric Cutter Starter Set  (Retail Value $129.00)
  • Colonial Needle – Turn-Sharp, Colonial 45mm Rotary Blade Sharpener (Retail Value $32)
  • Presencia America –10 pack, 50 Weight, 100M spools of Sewing Thread  assorted colors ($20)
  • Nancy’s Notions – $10 gift certificate to Nancy’s Notions

Judge comments: “I felt her execution was new, fresh and bold…she kept it very sophisticated in the main design but through the coordinates, was able to bring in another view that was a bit more simplistic while still keeping to the theme and vision.  A great combo for quilters in my opinion.”

Katherine-for-Instagram-TEXTILE-WINNER

Katherine Lenius won 1st Runner-Up and prizes from:

  • Nancy’s Notions –  $10 gift certificate to Nancy’s Notions
  • AQS- 1 year digital subscription to American Quilter’s Society Magazine  ($25)
  • 1 P&B Fat Quarter Pack ($50)

Judge comments: I really loved her artwork of the poppies.  The group worked so well together especially once the last coordinate was added.  Again sophisticated but in a subdued way.  Designs and layouts that were beautiful yet workable for the quilter.

Julie-for-Instagram-TEXTILE-WINNER

Julie Marriott was awarded 2nd Runner-up for her collection and won prizes including:

  • Nancy’s Notions – 1 $10 gift certificate to Nancy’s Notions
  • AQS- 1 year digital subscription to American Quilter’s Society Magazine   ($25)
  • 1 P&B Fat Quarter Pack ($50)

Judge comments: Whimsical, well thought out, coordinates worked together in both color and style and basically she created a well rounded saleable group.  Very well done.
