Last summer and fall this group made many pick up stick blocks which we used to make two donation quilts for our guilds comfort quilt program. Cheryl took most of the blocks which she pieced and quilted. I took the leftover blocks, added sashing and made a second quilt which you can read about here.
We entered the quilt Cheryl completed into the show. There was a category for modern quilts made by a group.
As you can see we won a ribbon! We came in second in our category. How awesome is that.
Ten of us participated in making this quilt. Here's a picture of Wendy, me and Cyndy in front of the quilt. Our friend Carol took the photo. She's not in the picture because she's not in the Small Modern Group.
It was a fun show to go to with a wide variety of styles and several quilts made by youth in 4H programs. I loved seeing those quilts. Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts was there selling her patterns, so we had a nice visit with her. Man those quilts are gorgeous in real life. They look great on her blog but even better in person.
The more I go to quilt shows the more I feel I could enter my quilts. It will never be my focus but I think it would be a great way to tighten up my skills. I'm sharing this post at the
Main Crush Monday linkup at Cooking Up Quilts.
