What a Sweet Quilt show it was!

I think this will end up being a long post, so you have been forewarned :)

The Sew Sweet Quilter's, my local guild, wrapped up our quilt show Saturday afternoon after 2 fun filled quilt show days! Without further ado....our show!

Quilts submitted for display only (not judged) were either hung in the show room, or if without sleeves, draped on the pews in the sanctuary.

Our guild has 3 founding members. One of those ladies was our featured quilter for the show, Eileen Powell. She is the most generous and wonderful woman, and OH MY, what a quilter! We each did a block for this quilt & presented it to her the Monday of show week. We each signed our block, and the lattice block has also been signed by everyone.

Here it is: Best in show!!! This bright reverse applique was made by Claudine Pinkley (shown) and long arm quilted by Becky Stowers. Claudine has a great eye for eye popping color. She has only been quilting a few years. The quilt is phenomenal!

Patsy Littrell won her blue ribbon for the hand quilting category. The crazy quilt was also made by Patsy & both were a labor of love. It is such fun to have Patsy walk you through the crazy quilt, as there is a story behind each piece.

Debbie Hart, made all three of these quilts! I love the versatility in her quilting. She truly enjoys every part of quilting and is not tied down to any one favorite style, method, or "look". Debbie won Best in Show last year.

The quilts below were just some I snapped pics of. I didn't talk to the quilters to get persmission to name them/call them out, so I will post them for your veiwing pleasure!
