Quilt Show in Review

 Yay! Finally a quilt show and it was my guild, the Ninigret Quilters Guilds' 40 year anniversary Ruby Jubilee Show.

The show is held at the Westerly Armory.  We had 205 quilts - all in one room! Here is a panoramic view from the balcony just as the show was opening on Sunday.
There were 14 Guild Mystery quilts on display.  I love to see how everyone makes them their own.
Here is Best in Show made my Pat Harrison.  Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo of the card. Pat is a professional Long Arm Quilter and won extra merit ribbons for this quilt.

Many quilters in our group do not have their quilts judged.  If your work is judged, there are two categories; artisan and master.

This was my favorite quilt in the whole show.   It is a quilt from the Shelburne Museum.
And here are some other beautiful quilts from this wonderful show.


Chrome Sweet Chrome received Best Appliuqe' and Best Hand Quilting.  What an honor!  It also received a Vendor Ribbon (not in photo) from Beyond the Bolt a great local quilt shop.  Thanks ladies!
Technicolor Dream Quilt received best Modern Quilt.  Who Me? a Modern Quilter?  
Chernobyl received a 3rd in pieced master.  I spoke to several visitors about this quilt who wanted to know more about it.
We all received these commemorative labels for our quilts.  What a special touch.
Here is the drawing for the Jubilee Raffle Quilt.  The tickets were SOLD OUT.  Tina's sister-in-law won, which was great because she designed and finished the quilt and was the Quilt Show Chairwoman.
I was lucky to win the Scratch Off Lottery raffle basket.  Wee!  I'm still working on them.  There are over $100 worth of tickets.
I hope you have enjoyed this visit to the show.  I celebrated by sipping this pretty sparkling rose' cava which came in a patchwork decorated bottle.
Hope have a happy weekend! If you have a chance, check out the harvest full moon.  Here are photos I took on Tuesday while driving home from NJ.
Until next time.

  11. Thank you for sharing - it's so nice to see a show! It gives one hope that things are starting to return to "normal"! Congrats on your ribbons - well-deserved, for sure! That sunflower quilt pattern is one of my long-time favorites (Bucket List!) and the Halloween EPP quilt made me smile. I think I may have to try a Halloween EPP quilt myself!

  15. Looks like a beautiful show in a place with really nice lighting. Your quilts are FANTASTIC and congratulations on winning the ribbons! It must have been so rewarding to be in and amongst other quilters, in person, and able to tell about your Chernobyl quilt etc. I love that sunflower quilt too. I think I saw it a number of years ago at VQF.

  18. It was wonderful to see all of these fabulous quilts. Of course, seeing yours as well. So many quilting events continue to be canceled. I'm glad yours wasn't. A 40 years celebration is long time for a group to stay together. Your raffle basket was a cool idea. Hope you hit the jackpot.

  24. Thank you for sharing your guild's quilt show! So many quilts entered and displayed. There haven't been many quilt shows for obvious reasons. Well-deserved awards you received.

  25. What a wonderful quilt show. Why not indeed! The person who said that is absolutely clueless.

  26. You are awesome! I know I've already said that your awards did not surprise me, but seriously, you should be so proud!! I can't believe you won that basket of tickets! Hope you tell us tonight that you won a million dollars! I will help you spend it! I also love that your quilt was next to the Best in Show. They are both stunning. I wonder if this is the same Pat Harrison who is a NQA judge? If so, she gave me a Judge's Choice award once. It was a bright colored quilt so I am thinking this might be the same person. Looking forward to our Zoom today - if we don't lose power!!
