Quilt Show Views

I am showing you some of the interesting exhibits at the Falling Leaves Quilt Show last weekend. Oh, they were all interesting and lovely, but there were over two hundred!! I couldn't photo all of them.
The vignettes of old dolls and their furniture adorned all the nooks and cranny's. This is my antique wicker buggy displayed w/doll and shawl was furnished by a very active member who is also a antique doll collector.The bathing beauty babe w/the 3D boobs wall hanging, was just to0 fun and was done so cute, but alas it didn't catch the judges attention for an award.

This quilt was called "Ann's Houses". Just adorable done in Freddy Moran fabrics. It earned a Blue Ribbon for Ann!

This is Ann's jacket. Can you imagine sewing all those patches. The colors were so blended. Very nice.

Here again is one of Ann's creations, called Material Girls was the title. Don'tcha just love the fabrics! This also earned Ann a Blue Ribbon!

Falling Leaves Quilt Show Awards

Here are the results of the Falling Leaves Quilt Show entrys that I made. I was very pleased to recieve the Blue Ribbon, 1st, for my "Leaves and Geese" jacket and a Red 2nd place for the small tree hanging. I showed them to you on a previous post after the local fair judge didn't consider either of the entrys as worthy of an award. Of course there was different competition at the quilt show. I do take that into consideration. The fair judges do not give comments as to their critic and the quilt show judges dictate to scribes to write a lengthy one. Giving good remarks and if needed suggestions to improve upon. I didn't recieve the latter for either! I didn't enter my Crazy for Circles lap quilt for judging. Just for exhibit. The fringe didn't look very good after I washed it!!! (See other post)
So...the quilt show is over and a "new quilting" season begins for the show next year!!! I have no idea what project I will start for next year!
