Georgia Quilt Show - Honorable Mention!

Spent all day yesterday at the Georgia Quilt Show! "Jewels in the Castle Wall" received an Honorable Mention. Again, the competition in this category was fierce, so it is wonderful just to be recognized! Isn't the Internet machine amazing? I "met" Leona on Facebook and sent her the quilt to be quilted. I finally got to meet her in person yesterday. This is the two of us at the show in front of the quilt.

This was the first place quilt in the Bed Quilt category - "Splendeferous" - it is an amazing quilt, lots of complexity and detail. The quilting is amazing!
Second place: - "My Sand Devils"

"Logs and Stars in Scraps" - Third.   This is an incredibly complex, non-strip pieced, beautiful quilt.
All the quilts in the show were gorgeous! So much hard work and creativity! For more pictures, if you're on Facebook, you can see them on the Original Sewing Expo's page.

As for me, I'm about to enter three weeks of epic back to back travel for work. I leave this afternoon for New York, then to Dallas on Tuesday. Don't come back from Dallas until Thursday.
