Marie Osmond/Janome Quilting Contest

Using Marie Osmond Quilting Treasures fabric, a new contest challenges quilters to create an original quilt and bring it to a participating Janome dealer by April 3rd, 2009.

The Janome dealer will automatically enter the quilt into a drawing to win a Marie Osmond Quilter's Companion (MOQC) machine from Janome.

One quilt from each dealer will then be selected for the national round, where Marie herself will pick the 10 quilts as finalists. On April 27th, the 10 finalists' quilts will be posted on Marie's site, www.marieosmond.com, for public voting. The winners will be announced on May 17th.

The 10 finalists' quilts will be auctioned on eBay and all proceeds will be donated to Children's Miracle Network, the charity Marie co-founded. (All other contestants have the option of donating their entry to their local Children's Miracle Network affiliated hospital as well.)

'I am thrilled that Janome, Quilting Treasures and Advantus have come together to create this amazing contest,' said Marie Osmond. 'With such fabulous prizes up for grabs, I can't wait to see the creativity and enthusiasm the contest is going to generate. And I'm so pleased that the winning quilts are going to benefit the Children's Miracle Network, a charity so near and dear to my heart.'
