Best in Show

Congratulations to my friend, Susan, for the Best in Show award with Zen Mandala!

This quilt has received many blue ribbons, and Best Use of Color at the Vermont Show and Quiltfest, NJ. It is remarkable.

Apparently, we had some sort of camera malfunction, because the close up photos that Rich and I took on Saturday morning are mostly missing :(

This was my personal favorite. I loved the chocolate background - loved it Evelyn!

Barbara K's

Bethany's, won best machine workmanship. I love her precision and work. I've been a big admirer for years. Look at that precision piecing - amazing!

A lovely Dear Jane

Elizabeth's ( more of her beautiful quilts to come)


I will post more later today and over the next couple of days.

Can you believe it? I WON the doll bed and bedding. I can not tell you how thrilled I was. Wendy, a friend and guild member, made the quilt and bedding. Oh, it's too wonderful to believe. I will treasure it forever.

Check out her hand dyed sheets.

See you soon for another installment.


  1. Love seeing all of the beautiful quilts. Congratulations on your fantastic win! That doll bed is stunning. Do you have a special doll for the bed?

    (Yes it was a bit hard to light the candle....but I did get it for photography.)

  2. Oh my! What gorgeous quilts. The Best of Show quilt must have taken some careful drafting for the design. It is very well executed both in stitching, color, and design. I can see why it was a winner.

  3. I can't stop looking at the bed! What a great win. Thanks for sharing the quilts. The piecing on the best of show is amazing.
