A Quilters Journey

What an amazingly great day today! Our guild show, A Quilters Journey, opened at 10 am this morning and it was rocking...the aisles were full, the quilters were shopping, and oh, my, the quilts are gorgeous. Every time I walk the main path (and that is a lot!), I see another quilt that catches my eye. Our guild is really lucky to have so many talented women and men (there are just a couple of them, but they do great work too). Warning...I did not resize any of these pics so they might take a bit longer to load.

I was thrilled to have two of my three judged quilts place in their categories. The first was Lois' Oriental Stars, which won a 3rd place ribbon in the Group Quilts category. There were 7 of us (including Lois) who worked on that quilt and it is really great to see one of her quilts recognized. Even better was that her sister Marti came to see the show today and I got to show off the quilt to her too! 

My Autumn Splendor also got a ribbon - an honorable mention, which I was thrilled to receive in one of the largest categories in the show. You can see in the right side of the picture that there is another from the same class hung in the next spot. 

But, the biggest highlight of all so far is that I got to do some publicity for the show on a local television show earlier this week. We prepped a whole page of questions, and I was ready with all these facts about the guild and the show, then didn't get a single one of the questions they prepped! I was able to think on my feet pretty well though and I had a great time. Wish I could spend every day talking about quilting!

Loved your interview, when he let you talk. And your batik quilt was great! Wish I was still in IN so I could have come to your show.
