It's Show Time...

"Over The River - My Way"
It's finally time...This week is Quilt Show Week for our guild.
I've entered five quilts for competition and display.
All of my quilts involve applique'.
If you've been reading my blog since I first learned this technique, you
may even chuckle a bit. You'll know that "I've come a long way, baby!".
"Martinique Plates"
I know that my friend, Flo would be proud of me if she were still here.
"Princeton Plates"
The week begins today with quilt judging for ribbons. Our guild has
about one hundred forty quilts, and most were submitted to be judged.
"The Pink Panther"
These are all my entries. I'm also having "Over The River" and
"Martinique Plates" appraised. Once "Martinique" is valued, I'll
know that "Princeton Plates" will be approximately the same value.

I'll be scribing (taking judge's notes) and helping turn quilts for
evaluation all day today. I'll be back on Wednesday to let you 
know the results. (Especially if there's anything "crow worthy"!)
 This is the week we've been working toward for the past two years.
We'll be crazy busy, but I want to savor it all.

I have to run. Judging starts at 8 o'clock this morning.
Wish me luck!

(There's still time to order raffle tickets, too! Just send me an email for details.)

Beautiful Donna I think you should get 1st 2nd 3rd 4th and 5th, am I being a bit biased?
I would love to do All through the woods myself.
Good luck my friend.xx

Good luck Donna!! Your quilts look fabulous and I hope the judge will recognize that... I love the Dresden plate one you made for "Handsome" - I have several of those same fabrics and am so delighted to see how they look here.
Have fun, you deserve it!!

They're all lovely, but I am totally in love with the basket of flowers in the center!
