Please reference this post about the Challenge Quilt Voting.

A number of people have contacted us regarding the poll not working.  I have put up a new poll so please vote again!   Although this is highly unusual we hope the Florida Supreme Court will uphold our decision.  Hanging chads will not be counted.

“New York Mosaic” by Susan
“The first thing that struck me when I moved to NY from the Midwest, almost 30 years ago, was the non-stop motion everywhere, the lack of patience and the need for everyone behind me to be somewhere else five minutes ago, if not esterday.  To me, NY is a true mosaic, not a melting pot, with each person a unique part of the whole.  This quilt is based on the subway tile station mosaic motifs, trying to incorporate motion, people, landmarks, traffic and some of the many things NY is know for: finance, communication, entertainment, food, etc.”

“Convergence” By Joyce

“I was inspired by the convergence of the people, cars, trains that form New York City.”

“All On Time” By Zmira
“I employed a variation of the log cabin block.  My husband and I enjoy traveling to our favorite spots in the 5 boroughs by subway.  “All On Time” was sewn in honor of an artist who was forced by the Great Depression to give up his scholorship to Pratt Institute to work as a NYC motorman. He later came out of retirement to work at a menial job to pay for the tuition of his daughter as a dance major in NYU so that she could fullfill her dream.”
