Best of Show at the Kings Fair


Here's a close up of the quilting.
I can't believe it. I got a call yesterday from friend who was there and said I got a Rosette (I'm assuming a big ribbon) for Best of Show, Machine Quilting. I also get $10. Woo Hoo! So excited. This is the quilt that won the ribbon - it's a Scrap Therapy quilt. Who would have thought it could win a ribbon. The outside border took over 1,000 - 2" squares - it wasn't hard when you use the Small Scrap Grid by Quiltsmart. You iron them on then sew the seams one way, snip the cross seams and then sew the seams the other way. If you want to check out Scrap Therapy, their website is http://www.scrap-therapy.com/projects.html Our local quilt shop, Thimble Towne has a class every month to work on one of their projects.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your comment on my quilt. I just had to come visit you, and I am glad I did.
What a beautiful quilt! Well worth its ribbon. I have a huuuuuge bin full of scraps, and will have to investigate scrap matters.
