Best of Show

  This past weekend, our local quilt guild had our semi-annual quilt show.  I brought 10 quilts of various sizes to the show.  It was nice to see that I have accomplished quite a bit in the last couple of years.  In addition to my own quilts, several of the ladies from the guild are kind enough to trust me with quilting their quilts, so it was great to have a lot of my work on display for people in the community to see. I was thrilled to receive the "Best of Show" award for my 1930's reproduction quilt sampler.  There were lots of beautiful quilts at the show, so it was truly an honor to win the ribbon.  My "Poppies Delight" wallhanging also won a ribbon for "Best Applique." 
  The show was a lot of work to put on, and our coordinator did a wonderful job.  The way it was organized, the decorative displays, the food stand...everything went smoothly and people really seemed to enjoy it.  We gave away our raffle quilt, and after selling hundreds of tickets, a member of our own guild won the quilt!  We were thrilled for her!  All in all, the show was a big success, and it was fun to be a part of it.  Now, I better get busy working on new quilts for the next one!
