You Could Have Knocked Me Over With A Thread

2nd day of Rock Valley Quilters Guild quilt show.

So many beautiful quilts and displayed so beautifully.

Took as many good pictures as I could - and some not so good but the show was fabulous.

Some people I know personally one ribbons and ta da -  to my very big surprise I actually won a ribbon this year.

2nd place Bed Quilt - Constructed and Long Arm Quilted By One Individual.

My pattern Lightning Strike:  When I was asked by guild to enter a quilt, I didn't have much to chose from as you know I have sold off or given away many many of my quilts.  So I pulled this off the quilt rack and sent it on.  Never imagined it would actually take a ribbon.

I can now say I have an award winning quilt and pattern - whoop whoop.

Although I am very excited and extremely honored - I, like I said was totally surprised.

The Best of Show - by Karla Nitz was jaw dropping beautiful

I had several of my customers showing their quilts - I think in total I had 8 quilts with my name as quilter on them.  Can we say happy dancing!!!!!

A good friend and customer of mine Vicki Oaks, also won a ribbon - I did not quilt this for her she had it done by a another professional with a computerized long arm.

This is a beautiful quilt - Tonga Nature BOM By Wing and a Prayer

I took many pictures some good some not so much -

There were many more, however, I did not take pictures of all of them it would take you a few days to go through all of them
