Celebration of Quilts!

Oh My!  Song of the Sparrow won the favor of the judges at the recent Brownstone Quilt Show this past weekend.
My quilt was awarded with 1st in Applique Wall Quilts, Best Hand Quilting and Best in Show.  I am so honored and still amazed.

The show was excellent and the quality of the quilts was the highest it has ever been.

I was very preoccupied chatting with friends and guild members so I didn't get all the photos that I would have liked but here are some of my favorite quilts:

Pauline's City Scape One Block Wonder - and what a wonder it is!  She was awarded 1st place duet wall quilt, Judged Choice and Viewer's Choice (awarded after photo).
Nancy's (co-chair) BOM Star Quilt.  Machine quilted with my fan stencil.
Pauline's Star (BOM co-chair)  Such an incredible setting!
Another Star BOM Beauty by Peggy.
Norma's Baby Quilt with embroidery animals.
Incredible recreation of a 1916 Quilt that was a feature quilt and book cover of the Red and White Infinity Variety Show in NYC.
Fun hexie quilt by Margaret.  The title is "never again".
Lovely 4 Block Applique' by Maureen.
I was absolutely smitten with this pattern.  So charming! and so well done.
Love those Hand Quilted Baptist Fans!
 Each Pair carried a "ticket to ride".  Adorable!
Nine-patch color wave quilt by Jacqueline 
Finished Lollipop workshop piece made by Flo.  Love the colors!  Flo won the raffle quilt on Saturday - yay
 Margarets Harry Potter Quilt.  As a inept paper piecer I am impressed!
Action shot of my God Jul quilt going up.  Thanks you Sir!
My Toile' the Night Before Christmas.
 You can see more on the Brownstone Facebook Page Here.

My Silly Vanna White Impression - Have to get it while the gettings good, right?  ha ha
 Nutmeg is totally unimpressed and just wants a belly rub :)

Congratulations to all members of the Brownstone Quilt Guild on a Fabulous Celebration of Quilts, and especially my friends, Pauline and Nancy for Co-Chairing this wonderful event.
