Brownstone Quilt Show 2011 - Part 1

Greetings!  Thank you to everyone who sent well wishes for a good quilt show.  After 2 years of planning and many hours of work, it was a Wonderful Show!!

I'm excited to share some of the quilts with you.  This was a judged show, but I'd just like to say that I'm grateful for all the wonderful women who entered quits and shared their passion and talent, regardless of judges recognition.  Far too often wonderful quilts are passed over because of Judging bias (just saying).

Best in Show -



Best Use of Color-



Best Machine Workmanship - (this also won viewer's choice!)



And in no particular order some of my favorites-
Donna's - Give Peace Another Chance.


Susan's, Blueberries and Cheddar


Pauline's - Floral Charm - Note:  the squares are Hand Appliqued on the background!


Nancy's  - A Leisurely Trip Around the World. (incredible hand quilting!!)


Renata's - My French Garden


Maureen's Red and Green Album


Our Vintage Revisited Challenge (previously posted here)


The mini auction, which is such a hit with the visitors to the show.  I won three this year, hooray.   Susan and Barbara took this over from me and did a fantastic job!!


That's all for now.  I'll be back with more quilts to share.
In the meantime, I have a lot of blogging reading to catch up on.

Thanks for coming to the show today, I hope you had fun.

    We just had our biennial quilt the last week in October & I know what you mean about 2 years work...it takes forever to set up and comes down so fast!
