Jann's Finished Blossom...

Photo of "Gazania" courtesy of Jann
 Isn't it just magnificent?
Jann emailed this photograph of her blossom yesterday so that
I could show you what it looked like now that it's completed.

In case you missed it, click here to go to my original post about Jann.

She also told me she hoped to complete the quilting on "Wildacres II:
Coneflowers" yesterday afternoon and would do the facing last evening.
(That's the one she's holding in her hands in the original post. )
We all knew that she'd have these done in time for her guild's show which
will also be held in February, and I know that everyone is going to love them!

I do have a correction...Jann is not a member of the Peace River Guild.
(Their loss!) She belongs to Sharing Quilters in Bradenton, FL; and the
Friendship Knot and Sarasota Modern Quilt Guilds, both in Sarasota, FL.

Thanks for sharing this picture and your updates, Jann.
I just know that your beautiful blooms will be admired.
Today is the first day of our quilt show. I'll have lots of photographs tomorrow.
You have all been so patient, so I'll share my excitement with you now.

"Over The River" 
 was awarded a First Place Ribbon in its class
(and was held for Best Track Mounted Quilting category)
"Princeton Plates"
was awarded a Second Place Ribbon in its class
and also won
 Best Track Mounted Work in Show
"Martinique Plates"
was awarded Second Place Ribbon in its class
was awarded a Second Place Ribbon in its class
"The Pink Panther"
was awarded an Honorable Mention Ribbon in its class

EVERY quilt I entered earned a ribbon! I'm still pinching myself!

Competition was fierce, and the quilt that won "Best In Show" really deserved it.
I was so honored to be considered for that ribbon, but it went where it belonged.
I'll photograph it today to show you tomorrow.

Today is Day One of the Show. I'll be there from 9am to 5 pm
at the Convention Center on Hwy. 41 in Punta Gorda.
Stop in if you're in the neighborhood!
