If you have been following my blog, then you know I have been eagerly awaiting the judging results from a local quilt show. Barbara Kiehn and I collaborated on and had 3 quilts in the Folsom, California 2009 quilt show. Here are the results:
The first one, a silk Japanese Memory quilt seen above right after I finished the quilting, won a 1st place. This lovely quilt was pieced from antique kimonos and featured family photos transferred onto silk by the Pixeladies.
This quilt, titled “In the Garden”, earned 3, no make that 4 ribbons- a 1st place, a “Best Machine Quilting” ribbon, also “Judge’s Choice” and Viewers Choice. The Judge’s Choice ribbon is the first time a quilt that I worked on has received this award, so a “thank you” to the judge- whomever he or she is. And, of course, earning the Best Machine Quilting award is always exciting to a machine quilter! Getting Viewer’s Choice is an honor as well.
This quilt was also hung with no quilt behind it so that the viewers could enjoy the quilting on the back of the quilt, too. Another first for me!
Quilt 3: Egyptian Quilt
The stunning Egyptian quilt that Barb made to give to her husband won a 1st place and Best of Show! Congrats to Barb for all her hard efforts, it was so fun to watch her reaction as we visited each quilt at the show.
I will show you pictures of all the beautiful quilts that I enjoyed at this show later on, there were some real stunners!
Before I sign off, I want to send a special thanks to Barb for being such a good friend and delightful collaborator! Enjoy your moment!!
