Springtime in Charleston

My guild has a show every 2 years. In the past we've had a raffle quilt but can't really call it that because technically raffles are considered gambling and that's against South Carolina law. To avoid potentially breaking the law the committee for our next show decided to do a theme contest. Members would submit a quilt based on the theme "A Quilters View of Charleston" The image of the winning quilt would be used in all advertising for the show and we would also sell patterns of the quilt as a fundraiser.

The winning quilt is a beauty and depicts the bridge over the Cooper River with the Charleston skyline in the background. It will be a wonderful representation of the quilt theme.

This was my submission for the contest.

It was fun to make, but the workmanship is not very good. I had to rush to meet the deadline and took too many shortcuts.
