Two Of Our Quilts Won Ribbons!



Viewers voted for their favorite quilt in each of 8 divisions. After those ballot votes were counted, ribbons were awarded. The ribbons awarded in each division were first, second, third and honorable mention.
One of my quilts, my Bee In My Bonnet Row Quilt, won Honorable Mention! It was in the "Small Bed Quilt Division" along with 30 other quilts.


Cathy's quilt, Good Vibrations, was in the "First Time Entry Division". Her quilt won an Honorable Mention Ribbon, too!

My favorite quilt entered in the quilt show won "Best Use of Color", "Best Machine Quilted" and Second Place in the "Large Bed Quilt Division". A picture of that colorful, batik quilt was in my last post.

We were shocked at the BIG turnout for our guild's two day quilt show. It was the guild's largest quilt show ever with over 100 quilts displayed. There was a bed turning event 3 times each day. Each was well attended. Several vendors were there. One gave away a Bernina Sewing Machine. The guild had a little store were handmade items made by guild members were sold. We had a silent auction and a quilt raffle.

Several ladies attending the quilt show requested applications to join the guild!
I think everyone that came had a good time. I know I did!
