Greetings dear readers! What a crazy, busy week I had getting ready for and participating in our annual quilt show. I enjoyed it, though, and the show was wonderful. The 3 quilts I had judged all got blue ribbons 🙂. The demo I did on prepared edge appliqué went well. On today’s post I’m sharing 10 quilts that won awards. Enjoy the photos and enlarge them to appreciate the details.
Our Best of Show was a worthy winner – a lovely version of Edyta Sitar’s Patchwork Barn pattern with beautiful machine quilting:
There were 3 Viewer’s choice awards:
This was an especially wonderful Viewer’s Choice because of the meaning of the quilt to the maker and her daughter:
Viewers loved this version of the Raven pattern:
This quilt was one of the Judge’s Choice winners:
The edging design around the center is “prairie point “ style:
The entries to my guild’s Challenge contest – which I talked about in my 8/31/22 post – were all displayed and here are the 3 winners (including my own “Whirlwind”!).
Our guild president gets to give a ribbon to her favorite quilt, so here’s this year’s President’s Choice:
I have several more quilts to share, but want to get the above posted now as it has taken me far too long to get these up! I will save the rest for the next few posts and close out this one with a few more autumn photos:
I love this “red” tree standing out at the pond:
I have a Japanese Maple tree that is late to turn red, but when it does, the color is brilliant and lasts for about a week:
I’ll be back in 3 days with my October mini – hope to get it done just under the wire this weekend!😊
Be kind, be grateful, and cherish each day, Gladi
