Silver City Quilt Guild Show

Wow - we had a wonderful quilt show. Lot's of fabulous quilts made by some incredible quilters! And my little quilts did very well for themselves - receiving 6 ribbons! I was so excited!!

Blue Hibiscus received FOUR ribbons! Oh My Gosh!
We had the opportunity to have our quilts judged by Holice Turnbow  
two ribbons were from the judged category!
First Place Small Bed
Best Hand Quilting
First Place Viewer's Choice
Second Place Guild Choice

This quilt was a true labor of love - it took a year and a half to do all of the
needle turn applique and hand quilting (Hawaiian Echo style)


Fiesta Won a Third Place Small Bed - Judged category


 Sashiko Bamboo and Hibiscus won 
Second Place in the Judged Wall hanging division


 And my little Experimental Iris was just so darn Cute!
But her binding needs work!
So I plan on removing the binding, re blocking her
and reattaching the binding on a bit better this time!

Even my Mom's vest won a ribbon!
Second Place -Other in the Judged Category!!
She was so excited!
As she put it ... "I'm 86 and this is the first ribbon I've ever won"!!
It was really special!

Now that the show is over - I'm taking a small breather!
Lining up my next few projects.
But on the top of the list is my daughter's T-shirt quilt
which I MUST have done by Christmas!!
