I'm using Cloud 9 Fabrics - Ribbon Box Quilt pattern and Island Batik's Splash fabrics.
This past weekend was my local county fair (Lincoln Co., WA) and I had a few of my own quilts as well as several customer quilts.
Was nice to be recognized for some good work.
Three quilts got best of show in their category (one was mine, and the other two I quilted), one of my customers' got people's choice and the other also got an Honorable Mention ribbon from INMQ (a Machine Quilter's regional group).
All six of my entries got at least a blue ribbon and of the other 6 customer entries, 4 blue and 2 red.
Whoo Hoo! Fun to be recognized and learn from the judge specific things I can continue to work on--if I choose! :-) HA! Utility quilts just don't seem to need the miter stitched down in the binding, what do you think?
I have awarded the two giveaways to the first two that have come by the shop for their copy of the magazine and Marcus Fabrics after the release of my pattern 'Mountain Pass' in the Oct/Nov McCall's Quick Quilts issue now on newsstands. Congrats Karren P. and Carol E.!
Imminently happening .....this is a sneek peek of a part of my row that will be in a row along that starts Sept. 6. ....the Road Home (see side bar).
