Quilt Show

There is still not a lot of quilting going on at our house so I haven't had anything to post.   This weekend was our guild's annual quilt show and I was asked if I'd be posting pictures to my blog by someone who had forgotten to bring a camera (or had one that wasn't working?).  So for that person and any blog readers who might still be  stopping by (can't expect to keep any readers when you don't blog :} )  here is a link to a slideshow of quilts from the Little Balkan's Quilt Show in Pittsburg, KS

I was delighted to win the Overall Best Quilt award for my Dutch Trade as well as a blue in it's category.  My four other entries garnered two more blue ribbons and two second place ribbons.

Dutch Trade also won a blue ribbon and Grand Champion Quilt at our country fair last month. 

Tomorrow I ship it to Paducah for it's trip to the AQS show in Des Moines next month. 

Hope you enjoy the show:

This post slipped by me. Not hard as I've not been on blogger for long time.

Congratulation on your quilts, this is no surprise, you do such beautiful work and have so wonderful sense of color.

And thank you for the quilt show, some of the quilts are so awesome, I'm glad and thankful for having had this chance to view them.
