It was a lovely show, but I just couldn't get pictures of all of them. The ones I am showing are no lovelier than any others; I could just get the best angle for the pictures. Most of them have something about them that I want to remember - either the quilting, or the color, or a certain shape....
I will post more tomorrow - just about as many. We had about 175 quilts total, as well as vendors. What made me smile was the two ladies who came both days because there was too much to see! We even had a male boy scout who had come to the church for a meeting, and wanted to see the quilts too, when he discovered the show was in the next room!
I will state up front that my notes are a mess, and it's difficult to read everyone's names, and what ribbons they won. Everyone deserves the recognition and I will work on that, but I definitely wanted to get the quilts out here for you to see!
I didn't win any first place ribbons - the competition was tough! I entered five quilts, and I won:
Here are some of the quilts!!!
Jane Kennedy's Moonlight and Maples won third in the pieced category
My Amitie Fleurs (Friendship Flowers) took second place in Hand Applique
Klonda Holt's Poco Loco -First place machine quilting (Beth Kurzava), Viewer's Choice Best of Show, I think it has another ribbon too. Will check on this.
This stained glass quilt was hanging just perfectly so the sun was hitting it. It looked so REAL!! First place in Machine applique
Topsy Turvey Nine Patch from a class taught by Judy Laquidara. There will be more variations on this later on.
