Quilt Show Magic

Last week my guild held its biennial show “A Journey in Quilts – 2013”.  It was a bittersweet time for me since I missed most of the show because of my impromptu trip to Texas, but I was excited to learn that I had won THREE blue ribbons……

“Flower Pot, Flower Pot…..SO Many Flower Pots”…..

The show was beautifully laid out and hung and it was such fun to spend two hours enjoying the wonderful quilts.

This one was made by my friend Deb and was part of the “Two Block” challenge…..

Sylvia is a Marine Biologist and many of her quilts express her love of all things scientific!!

Terri stole the show, winning numerous ribbons for her wonderful scrappy quilts.  This is one of my favorites…..

A group of women, calling themselves “Artful Hands” put together this fun piece….

But the show stopper was a quilt made by Cleo….hand appliqued, hand quilted and beaded….

Look at the detailed quilting  (remember that it is done by hand)…..
