- Stop by the store in person to register. If you live outside the area you may have a friend or family stop by on your behalf. CCQ is unable to register you by phone or mail or choose the fat quarters for you. In a blind draw, you will choose 2 Ugly Duckling Fat Quarters. Registration fee is $10 and is refundable in the form of store credit upon meeting the following criteria:
- We’re calling it the Quilted Something so you can be creative. Your entry can take any form for example: Wall hanging, table topper, 3D artwork, utilitarian object etc. To be called a quilt it must have 3 layers. You may use a published pattern, an adaptation or totally your own design.
- The sum total of the 4 longest sides must measure no more than 120” and no less than 24”. For example 4 sides of a 6” block totals 24”.
- The 2 Ugly Duckling Fat Quarters must appear in the front of your entry and the remainder is to be used as the backing. The amount used in the front and back is up to you.
- Return your completed entry no later than March 30, 2018 for in-store display in person, by mail or by friend. (new this year):Your completed entry must be quilting or tied with an out of sight label that includes your name, small cuts of your Ugly Duckling Fat Quarters and the title of the piece. Label may be permanent or temporary and of fabric or paper.
- During the month of April anyone entering the store will be asked to vote for their favorite entry. Send in your friends, family, neighbors – anyone, except the owner of the entry, you're on your honor not to vote. Employees and vendors of CCQ may not have an entry or vote. It will be suggested voters take into consideration the best use of the 2 fat quarters, but not a requirement of their vote. Owners and employee of CCQ will tally the votes. Their results will be final.
- Winners will be posted in store and notified via email May 2, 2018. Shopping Spree Certificates will be valid for use from May 2, 2018 thru May 1, 2019.
