Quilt show

Today was opening day for the Cobblestone Quilters Guild show.  It's been 2 years in the making and I believe it is a beautiful show. 

The Best of Show - Bed sized quilt was Southern Comforts by June Bohac and quilted by Karen Kendo.  This quilt just happens to be our raffle quilt and some lucky person will be able to take it home tomorrow evening.

Best of Show - Wall quilt was Red Hot Baltimore by Beverly Cone.  Shortly after Beverly submitted the paperwork for the entry she passed away suddenly.  We were so pleased that her family agreed to submit the quilt and were elated when it won. 

Best track (long-arm) machine quilting and best applique was Red and Green Revisited by Darlene Donohue and quilted by Debbie Yezbak.

Best machine quilting - stationary machine was Grandmother's Legacy of Flowers by Paige Alexander

Best Hand Quilting and Best Theme was My Southern Heritage by Margaret Jones

Sunlight on the Reef by Lynne Gettelfinger won Best Use of Color

l'edredon de Bess (Bess's Quilt) by Evelyn Richards won Best First Entry in any Quilt Show

There were 2 Judge's Choice quilts.  Yellow-Bellied Slider by Lucretia Pope

and Buzz...Buzz...Buzz by Nancy Barnette and quilted by Kathy Kean

Here's my little whole cloth quilt with its blue ribbon

I'm exhausted and my feet hurt.  Putting on a quilt show is not for the faint of heart!

Gratz on your ribbon! It was a great show. It was definitely worth it to drive all the way from Lake City in the rain just to check out all the gorgeous quilts!
