Concerns justified...

In my last post, I was being all neurotic about having 7 prize worthy quilts from my friends as overnight guests (spend-the-nght guests of my two quilts...) in my livingroom, awaiting a 90 mile journey to the Sauder Village quilt show in Archbold, Ohio (click on "2011 quilt show winners" to at least see pictures of the first place quilt in every category - that will hold you until I post pictures I take on Friday evening).

Well, the show opened yesterday and runs through this Sunday, May 1.  As I perused the list of ribbon winners on Facebook and the Sauder Village web site, I saw that 8 of the 9 quilts I took received ribbons, including 2 first place ribbons (woo hoo Cheryl for both of them!), 3 second place ribbons (yippee Mary J, Margit...and me!), 2 honorable mention ribbons (yahoo to Mary J for both of them!), and a Best of Show, Wall Hanging (shock and awe...mine!!).

I feel justified in my neurosis...LOL.

I go to the show on Friday, then will post lots of lovely eye candy...yum!  There is a short video of highlights on the Sauder Village Facebook page, if you are interested, to tie you over until then.

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  7. Justified in a good way...when I read the title of the post I was so afraid something bad (like flooding...I am in Paducah after all!) had happened!

    Congrats to you all...sounds like a great show!

  11. Best of Show!!! Woo Hoo, that is awesome, but then it was a pretty awesome quilt, just so many fun things you put into it. I bet the judge just kept turning and turning it on all sides to be able to see everything. I would take that ribbon home and sleep with it under my pillow, who knows what quilty dreams it will inspire.
    Big smile for you : )
