First place Mixed Technique - Sue Wilson - What's interesting here is that the elephants came to her from Sri Lanka after having seen an ad in Quilter's Newsletter asking for assistance to aid the women of Sri Lanka. In return for a donation, she received the elephants, which she then appliqued and added more embroidery - and designed that wonderful border treatment!
Our President, Elly Grya's quilt She says: "It was my Granny's "petals", I designed the quilt and quilting...Mom and I put it all together and then I did the hand quilting (my first hand quilting project). It is a near and dear quilt to me because of the history and memories."
This is the first place winner in the quilt challenge. It was to be a quilt using a specific pattern (MO star), and to portray what you love about the state - Missouri.
Another Topsy turvey - Joan didn't recognize that hers didn't look quite like the others until she had it to the quilters! LOL! I think I like her setting better, don't you?
And wasn't I the good girl? We had great vendors, and this is all I brought home. 5 packages of Presentia thread, and a couple of bags from our boutique. I LOVE the carry on bag - and what's better is that I didn't have to make it! I didn't show the 24 yards of jumbo rick rack that I found for only $1.00 per yard, but you will see it in the binding of the next quilt of mine that will be coming back from the quilter (sometime later this year).
Next post will be the beautiful quilts from our meeting's trunk show from Su and Dwayne Bunch, Piecemakers of Yukon, Oklahoma.
