It takes a lot of people, a lot of coordination and a lot of hard work to set up the show each year.
The poles set in place in the main room and quilts being placed where they will ultimately hang.
Most of the wallhangings in place on the back walls.
My Exploding Star received a 2nd place ribbon in the Small Wall Quilt category.
And one of my silk flower and tulle creations got a 2nd place ribbon in the Art Quilt category.
This AMAZING sampler mini was made by a man and is NOT PAPER PIECED.
To give you a better idea of the size and scale. It certainly deserved the blue ribbon in the Miniatures category!
My friend, Cindy, made this sweet miniature basket quilt and was rewarded for her outstanding work.
She also made this amazing appliqued wallhanging and received first place in the Small Wall Quilt category. Her work is just phenomenal!
The little Trip Around The World miniature was made by the same man who entered the sampler above. Another one composed of teeny, tiny pieces.
Progress in the back room where most of the largest quilts are hung.
Almost ready to raise the poles and quilts.
Check out the "trapunto" in the center of the quilt
We enlisted the help of some Pitt State basketball players and their coaches to raise the quilts. Quess which quilt they really liked? That's Brandee, the quitmaker with them.
I think I know which quilt will be Viewer's Choice this weekend!
Remember that quilt I was working on last week? Well lookee here. 1st place Pieced and Machine Quilted Domestic Machine (1 person)
I was lucky enough to get 3 more ribbons. Details tomorrow.
