I have modified one of the more well known quotes from Sheldon Cooper, as he expresses his disdain for Wil Weaton, in an effort to add a little humour into what has become a bit of a cat fight over at the AccuQuilt quilt block design contest.
Since day 3 of the AccuQuilt contest, Will Bennett has been in the lead. Since the day he entered his block design called "Satellite Ride".
Some of the contest entrants have had their nose out of joint because Will Bennett is the son of long time quilter, Judy Martin of Quilting With Judy Martin. The competition has been fierce. Quite literally! Some of the comments left on the AccuQuilt facebook page's messages (on the right sidebar) were getting pretty crazy.
And today was the first in a long time, that I took a look at the comments left on individual blocks at the AccuQuilt contest page. Some of those 'ladies' are getting pretty nasty! One person is claiming that Will did not design the block, but that his mother did. Ummm.... Hello? Don't you think she wouldn't have just entered it in her own name then?
Will has entered Satellite Ride, hoping to win of course, but has done so in an effort to raise money for the charity chosen by his sister. This charity is Camp Courageous of Iowa - a year-round respite and recreational facility in Iowa for youth and adults with disabilities.
And I say, "If you can't beat 'em - Join 'em!"
So if you have been faithfully voting for my entry in the contest, I want to say, "Thank you so much for showing your support and for being my friend!"
Even if you have entered a block(s) of your own in the contest, and are not in the top three standing - and whether you have or have not been voting - please join me in support of this Camp Courageous donation!
Let's join in our support by voting for that Satellite Ride to help keep it in first place. I would love to know that the readers and supporters of Sew Fresh Quilts can rise above the juvenile behaviour some of these 'other ladies' have been displaying... And do our part to enable the $1500 donation from AccuQuilt to be donated towards this worthy charity - Camp Courageous of Iowa!
NOW.... What's new with you?
Show me what you got... And Let's Bee Social!
