Success!

We had a wonderful quilt show! Our co-chairs organized everything so well and there were many able and willing volunteers. Our "Needful Things" booth was a great success! We were very pleased. So many generous quilters donated and/or bought items. Thank you! Here's Helen, Connie and myself waiting for buyers.


Best of Show was made by Joyce Jones. It was so beautiful! We've watched her stitch those leaves one by one. A photo doesn't do it justice.


More ribbons on these next quilts. Connie's lovely "Bow Ties" from Pam Buda's Prairie Women's Sewing Circle, Journey One.


Connie's "Christmas Presents". The pattern by Kate Spain using Flurry fabric was adapted for a charm pack by LuAnn Krug from  Loose Threads blog.


The pattern "Lilies for Connie" was a must make for Connie using gorgeous repro fabrics.


Helen's beautiful "Venetian Tiles" was taught in a class by Lana at The Quilted Cottage.


Helen's striking "Nan's Harvest" was made using a Thimbleberries panel and their Autumn Sunset fabric line.


This is my "Spinning Flowers" made from a Humble Bee Quiltworks pattern.


"Starstruck" I made from a Bonnie Hunter class taught for our guild in the fall of 2010. I love the blues and cheddar.


These are my two little entries made from a Lori Smith Quilt Squares pattern. I was really surprised to find ribbons on them.


Our guild website will have all of the quilt show pictures up soon. I'll share when it's ready.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
