Jasper Quilt Show

Friday we drove over to Jasper, MO  to take a few quilts for their annual show and Saturday we went back to view all of the quilts on display and then bring ours home.  I had four entries and Tom two and we brought home ribbons on everything.  Most important (to Tom anyway) is that he beat me once again..taking a blue ribbon in a category where I got a third place!  How do you like those apples?

As is the case every year there were some really  cool quilts.

Here are some of my favorites:
 An antique Grandmother's Flower Garden

Look at the size of those tiny hexagons!

Another cool antique quilt.  I will have to try and find the name of this pattern.

Beautiful hand applique, hand quilted

A lovely blue version of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler

A very interesting Cathedral Window quilt.  How unique is this?
Not all of the "windows" were opened.

Each year there are some really beautiful embroidered quilts in this show

A really pretty Double Wedding Ring took 1st place in the machine quilted category.  My "Waste Not' placed second.  The red and blue quilt on the right took third place

Nancy Perez from our Joplin Town and Country guild entered her two gorgeous applique quilts in the Applique-Machine Quilted category.  That's my Orange Co. Baltimore in the middle sporting another blue ribbon.

Isn't this just the cutest quilt?

Small Wall hangings..That's Tom's on the left, mine on the right

I love, love, love this Jack's Chain quilt that was started by the grandmother of the woman who finished it.  This pattern has been on my to-do list for a long time.

My Raggedy and Friends that I still think is ugly got another blue ribbon in  the child quilt category

And Tom's Teddy Bear's Parade in the same category got a 2nd place red

Hope you enjoyed the show.  I have pictures from two trunk shows over the last two days that I'll try and get posted before we leave for Iowa next week.
