Briar Rose Quilt Design Competition - Please Vote

Tomorrow is the day that voting opens in the Briar Rose Quilt Design Competition on Threadbias. Here is the quilt that I designed using their quilt design tool. I am calling it "Bumble Berry Paradise."
Contestants were to design a quilt using the fabrics from the upcoming fabric line "Briar Rose" by Heather Ross for Windham Fabrics. The designs were to be created using the Threadbias quilt design tool. I really enjoyed using the tool and will buy a subscription in the future to design more quilts with it. The prize for the winner is the fabrics to make their quilt. So please go vote at Threadbias tomorrow. I would love it if you would vote for mine but if you love someone else's quilt please vote for the one you want to win. You must be a member of Threadbias to vote but it's free to join up and it's an interesting website. It's mainly for people who like to craft with needle and thread kind of like Ravlery is for knitters. I hope you'll go vote! :)

My quilt has purple cone flowers appliqued on the quilt top. The yellow fabric has honeycombs and little bees so it was perfect for the flower centres. The border fabric has adorable little frogs on logs and fishing in their frog pond. I added the zig zag down the side for a more modern pop and a bit of interest. It also balances out the weight of the cone flowers which I offset to the left. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my quilt design. Come back tomorrow as it's "Give Away Day" (see button at right) and I will be giving away fat quarters and patterns from my stash.
