Georgia Celebrates Quilts 2013 post #1

Well, the show is over and it's time to start thinking about the next one...

i will be doing two show posts- this one will be the quilts that i participated in (ie quilted)

*WARNING*  some serious eye candy is getting ready to happen :)

first- 'Crimson Radiance' designed and pieced by Charlotte, won Best of Show!!! *snoopy happy dance* i had to submit a change of address form cause i was living on cloud nine :)

long time readers will remember this quilt hung at Paducah. it also took first place in the Two Person, large category.

this is our wedding quilt, 'The Perfect Pair'. i entered it into the group category and it took second.

i also quilted the first place winner in the Group category- Cindy's Mocha Latte Stars

Maetha's 'Summer Holiday' was awarded Honorable Mention in the Two-Person, Mixed (an even amount of piecing and applique) category

 Amanda's Quilt 'Star Parade' won second in the Two-Person Pieced, Large category.

Pam's row quilt 'Stash of Gesse' won 3rd in the Two-Person pieced, Large

(so in the Two-person pieced, Large Catergory, i quilt the first, second, and third place winners)

 Kathy's 'Spring of Hope' won the 3rd place ribbon in Two-Person Applique.

Eddie's 'Soldier's: Service and Sacrifice' hung in the show

and Roxanne's 'Sylvia's Bridal Quilt' also was presented

so there's the ones i helped with....later, the ones that i liked.
