I couldn't believe that it got Honorable Mention. I literally cried and almost passed out. I was so happy! The judges comments were vibrant, wonderfully modern design. good eye movement.
In the future, I will not use a sheet for the back. I will plan out the quilting better. I felt that I was on a time crunch. I thought that I would be able to go back in and add quilting after taking it off the long arm frame. The rings were able to be quilted on the home machine, but I was afraid of further distortion on the rest of the quilt. So, this was also a learning experience.
The following are just other quilts that were done by other quilters in the guild. My kids wanted photos with them. Plus, they are pretty. I thought I would share some.
These are the slice quilts based on a famous landmark. Our Pensacola Beach sign. Each person quilted there own representation with the basic picture given to them. This one is going to be displayed in the downtown library. I didn't participate in this one or the other.
This is the second slice.
This is my cute kids in front of one of the winning quilts. I wish the picture wasn't blurry. I didn't take that many photos.
Normally, I am not into Santa, but this is pretty.
I don't know why they are being so funny faced, but this is a pretty one too. We all loved the flowers. Our theme was in full bloom. This won 2nd in it's category and 2nd in theme.
It was a great show, and lots of friends and guild members came to see it. Thanks for stopping by.
