    I asked that question a while back and never got an answer. It must be "top secret" and no one knows the answer. I too am curious as to where they get the pics, where are they posted so we can see the full pic and info. How are they chosen and who does the chosing? PEASE enlighten us!

    I suspect they are randomly chosen from the Picture Gallery. The first one was Lacelady's Dear Jane which you'll find in that gallery. Thanks to the moderators who come up with ways to keep us inspired!

    i chose them. there was no particular system involved. it was semi-random.
    i tried to get a selection from across the years we've been online, from all skill levels, a variety of designs, etc.

    there was no subjective judging or comparison involved.
    i picked enough for a year, so will have to pick again sometime in late September for Nov 12 - Oct 13.

    i am open to suggestions as long as they don't involve anything that would make somebody feel badly whose quilt was not included.

    it's intended to be a fun thing, so i would enjoy hearing your ideas.

    If you click on the picture of the Quilt of the Week, it takes you the post with all of the information
    Nothing's a mistake. It's a learning experience. Some experiences, you learn more than others.

    To find the quilt of the week, click on resources at the top of the page. It will be on the right side a little ways down.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Patricej, It is just a curious thing. As long as we get to see some quilts it's a great idea. I also ditto your wonderful work on the board.

    Thanks for this info. I'll keep my eyes open to enjoy them more.

    Thank you Patrice J . You are doing a great job to include us all. I wouldn't change what you are doing.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    I think you are doing a bang-up job of picking, so keep up the great work! There are so many to chose from - how do you do it?

    Thanks for the explaination of how they are chosen...I didn't know whether there was a place where you entered your pics or if you/someone just picked out of the archives. Good to know.
