This was the Best of Show Bed Quilt, "My Fractured Waterfall," by Kathryn Gostola, machine quilted by Eva Birch. It also won best machine quilting.
Cyber friend Ann Champion entered three quilts and won three ribbons! I got to meet her briefly on Sunday afternoon when we were picking up our quilts. This is her first place winner in the Wall Quilts: Appliqued-Hand Quilted category. It is called "A Country Journal." Fabulous, and you know how I love chickens...
I have always liked this candy pattern. Mmmmm...candy....
This is Ann Champion's second place ribbon winner in the Bed Quilts: Pieced-Hand Quilted category called "Flowering Snowball."
Do you see a theme developing here? I have always loved these curvy, spikey quilts...
This is "2000 Pieces" and it won the ribbon for Best Color Usage by Sarah Basinger. Each fabric is used only once!
This one grabbed my attention (my daughter and her love of Harry Potter and fantasy fiction has worn off on me...).
I have my Dad's ties, along with others, and I am always looking for a good idea of a way to use them in quilts. This version was very pleasing.
