For the last two days I have been working my Guild’s Quilt show. My RRCB took a blue ribbon for bed quilts, along with Best Use of Color (Yay!). I also received a blue ribbon for my ugly fabric challenge. A 3rd place Viewer’s choice for my Bouliabaise quilt. No pictures on this blog, but it is a pattern you can Google it. As with most patterns, I deviated. It is rare when I take someone’s pattern and make it exactly like the directions. Must be a flaw in my character, I guess. My Scrapapples and Four Patch Swirl also received honorable mentions.
I really enjoyed working the show and told my husband that I could work a job like that and be SOOO much happier. By the time we had had dinner I had already started to get down thinking about having to go back to work Monday. Ugh!! It was a really good show and we had lots of vendors! This year one thing they did for prizes was have the vendor sponsor a gift certificate for each blue ribbon. So I got to go shopping……segue to the stash report. Since I didn’t get a whole lot of sewing done this week, it’s a bit uneven, but I bought some things other the fabric. I think next year I might have to do a library report–I seem to end up with more books and patterns than I know what to do with!
