Honorable Mention - such an honor

The local quilt show, Best of the Valley, was this weekend and I entered two quilts.  They both got ribbons, honorable mention.  These are the two I entered.

Anyway, the show was wonderful thanks to Suzanne Kistler the organizer and because she's so wonderful, she had a ton of volunteers to help make the show so wonderful. 


My friend Anna, was the featured artist.  Here she is in her area with just some of her quilts showing.  She also had several quilts in the show and won a couple more ribbons. 

My friend Debbie won 1st place for this quilt - it's from our Material Girls Paint Chip Challenge.  This quilt is spectacular in real life - the machine quilting will make anyone jealous.
Then my friend Diane also won a ribbon for her Vintage Moments.  I believe it was first place too--if it wasn't it should have been.
Then Janice won Best of Show for best use of color.  Wow!  So proud.
I had other friends who won but I didn't get any pictures (even though I brought my camera- all the photos above were taken from my friends blog.)  Our guilds opportunity quilt that I machine quilted also took first place.  Pretty happy about that.  The judges comments on my two entries weren't bad at all but I had to laugh at one she wrote "minor piecing issues at intersections".  I would love to tell the judge about my blog title, pointless quilter.  ha ha.  So if that was the worst of the comments, I feel pretty good.  I look at those comments on areas to work and improve on.  Anyway busy day selling opportunity quilt tickets and docenting for 3 HOURS!  My feet and back are sore.   Thanks to Bernita Garcia for docenting with me and keeping me company.  And congratulations to all my friends who participated and made it in the show.
