It's that crazy quilt show time of year!

I haven't had any quilts to post for a long time now - I am still trying to finish up a long term project which I can't show pictures of for a while.  But I do have a picture of my friend Sheri to post.  Her Storm at Sea quilt that I quilted for her won a third place ribbon at the AQS show in Paducah! I posted about it here. She had all kinds of problems with bleeding when she blocked it so this is definitely a happy ending!

Also exciting: I'm the chair of my guild's Opportunity Quilt committee which I posted about here. I entered it in Paducah and it won a first place ribbon in the Group Quilt category!  I'm so proud of it even though the only thing I stitched on it is the label.  It was hand appliqued by about 30 members of Prairie Quilt Guild and beautifully longarm quilted by Siriporn Hollar.  This should help us sell a few more tickets!

And even more ribbons:  my quilts came home from MQX this week and my miniature wholecloth, Itty Bitty Boutis won a second place ribbon in the Small Wholecloth category.  Unfortunately (for me!), they eliminated the Miniature category. 

 Ann's quilt came home with a teachers ribbon from Renae Haddadin - wow! Thanks

It's that crazy quilt show time of year!
