(Someone pointed out that I had not included a picture of myself in front of my quilt...this is right after the Winner's Circle big reveal. Thank you to whoever grabbed my camera and got the picture!)
Ready for the show??? The first 8 quilts are the big money winners. I "borrowed" the first pictures of each quilt from the quilts.org website, where they are flat, square, and true-colored, LOL.
But I am not sure you can zoom in on their pics for details, so I have included any good shots I took. There was no way I could get satisfactory, square pictures of all quilts, as you will see.
I will share the shots I have!
DISCLAIMER: I am a crappy photographer!! The lovely, soft lighting of the show venue and the super bright spotlights of the Winner's Circle celebration were challenging for my iPhone.
I usually bring my old-fashioned Sony "point and shoot" camera because it takes pretty good pics...should have packed it...
