My Quilt Show

Our quilt show was a raging success! The new venue was perfect, despite a water service break at the end of the show Friday, which was repaired and toilets ready to flush Saturday morning!
My jacket won a ribbon for best garment. Martha lead a class in the "fabric" making months ago. I used a Marcy Tilton pattern.
"Spring" won ribbon for best visual impact.
"Smog" won one of the judges choice ribbons. These last two quilts were made for a Project Runway type challenge one of the girls is running on HGTV message board this year, so I owe Lori a thank you for being motivating!  In fact the black and white fabrics in Smog are from her stash.
CQ pillow won ribbon for best home decor. Pam was happy to see that since this pillow is hers now!
And Jam & Jelly won for best large quilt machine piecing! This one is the stretch and surprise for me. This was started for Melissa's wedding gift, so when wedding called off, this quilt became mine. It was a lot of piecing. I got in a groove with it though and found I enjoyed doing it. I sleep under it and love it.

I had a lucky day.

Tracy & I ran the silent auction for the first time. All went well and we raised $1070.00 for the Batavia VA.

I love my guild. We are truly a talented, generous, kind, caring group. Next show October, 2014!

Now on to some projects that have been ruminating in my mind!

great job on all your pieces, missed you at the retreat this year. Branson was so much fun, and the condos were to die for.

I love your jacket and even though I have made hundreds of seminole strips I was super impressed with your seminole patchwork!

Love the "show" of your work, and I agree, your guild has some great talent, along being good company.
