Finally a bit of quilt stuff!


Our guild had their quilt show this weekend. I finally have some quilty things to share with you. Today is a peek at the 2 ribbons I got! I was so surprised when I walked in yesterday! Our show is judged by a NQA judge so that made it even more exciting. My Brownstone quilt won "Best of Show"! How cool is that!

And I also got 1st place in the Miniature category for my Cheddar Squares (Lori's Cheddar Cheese and Crackers quilt).

Tomorrow I"ll have more pics from the show.

Congratulations on your ribbons! Well deserved awards!
Reminds me that I have a Brownstone ready for borders, hiding somewhere in my house. You were the lady who got me started on it. It's such a great quilt with an organized scrappy look.
I'm sure Lori will enjoy reading about the blue added to her cheddar and crackers design.
