2008 Ripley Quilt Show

Saturday a quilter friend (Bonnie) and I took in a small quilt show. This group, Jackson County Creative Quilters Guild, has a show every year.

Yes, I took photos of all the quilts. This guild has a host of hand quilters. In fact, of all the quilts in the Show only a few were machine quilted. Fabulous work.

This quilt won 1st Place in the Machine Quilting Category.

This quilt took 1st Place in the Hand Quilting Category.

AND this one took Viewer's Choice ....... it was fabulous. She told me it took her several years to complete. Each embroidery stitch was perfect and the hand quilting was unbelievable. It is a treasure for sure. I'm sorry the photo doesn't show the embroidery thread colors ... they were very vivid.

Now all the other quilt photos are posted here. I hope you'll take a few minutes to enjoy the slide show.

Thanks for visiting.

What a great show to have locally! I love the mountain quilt, it's stunning.

Sorry to hear about your friend who suddenly passed away. It's lovely to donate quilts in her honor.

I just love quilt shows! It's always so much fun to see what other quilters are up to, isn't it?

I, too, am sorry about your friend. I'm sure a couple of little children will enjoy the cute quilts you've made in her honor.

Just to say how much I am enjoying your blog, I am an English quilter and greatly inspired by all the quilting stuff that is on the internet.
