Wow!

We’re really making tracks on this whole “nominate a quilter for a Google Doodle” thing. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out yesterday’s post.) We’ll hit 1,000 votes before long, and that’s a good showing in such a short time.

However … to really get Google’s attention, I’d like to see us at least double the number of voters. What does that mean for you? One of two things:

IF YOU HAVEN’T VOTED — Click here to be taken to the form, then vote!

IF YOU HAVE VOTED — Click here for the Quilt Scout post, then copy the URL to share it with your pals on social media/email/carrier pigeon. Then your friends will go vote and we’ll get our community represented by the people who decide what history is important. *You could just send your friends straight to the form, but going to the original post first seems sensible. But do what you want; I just want us to get those numbers up!

Right now, Nancy Zieman is in the lead, followed by Cuesta. Then … Well, there are a number of write-ins gaining ground and one person nominated me and my mom, which was very nice. I’ll keep updating on Facebook and when the time comes to do the official nomination, you’ll obviously be the first to know which quilter — sorry, which first of many quilters — will get Google’s attention.

This is fun.

    I will try to remember to mention this at our Colorado Quilting Council Meeting on Saturday!
    We can’t nominate you–you’re not dead yet!Thank Goodness! When I 1st started reading, I was thinking Paula Nadelstern–but she’s still around too!

    So glad to see Nancy in the lead. She was such a comforting inspiration to me in the 80’s when I was a stay-at-home mom with four little kids. Watching her show on PBS was my sanity therapy!!

    Couple of days late to the party, but I sent to my quilting bee friends yesterday, and I know that two of them voted (in addition to me)! Thanks for leading the crusade!
