Guild Show Viewer’s Choice Awards

My local quilting guild, the Gold Bug Quilters, had their quilt show this past weekend.  I had entered 2 quilts of my own and sponsored a quilt for Barb that I had quilted.  I also had a dozen or so more quilts that I had quilted in the show- including many featured in past blog posts.

The show was not judged, instead all the guild members and attendees vote for their favorite quilts.  Imagine my surprise when my quilt, Tropical Poppy, earned the Viewers choice for lap size quilts!  It didn’t enter my head that it would win, in fact, I didn’t even vote for it- LOL!

Remember the recent Valentine Quilt I quilted for Jayne?  It was the big viewer choice winner in the show, winning both Pieced, Machine Quilted quilt and also the equivalent of Viewer’s Choice Best of Show!!  Woo-hoo!! I don’t have a picture of the 2 ribbons, but here is are 2 pictures of the quilt hanging in the show:

I also appreciate that the guild made me a special name tag that identified me as having quilted the Guild’s Opportunity Quilt (see top picture above).  That was so nice of them!   I still remember the “incident” where a volunteer ripped the quilt, fixed by a fiber and beaded dragonfly!  I’ve already been asked to quilt the guild opportunity quilt in 2010,  that sounds and feels so far away.


In the next day or so, I will show you some wonderful quilts that were hanging in this show.

Regards, Carla
