My Quilt Guild’s Quilt Show

Cimarron Valley Quilters Guild had a quilt show Friday and Saturday. I entered ten quilts in the show, five of which were in the judged portion, and two in the guild’s challenge. I am very proud to have earned three ribbons. Below are pictures of me in front of my winning quilts.


The top quilt with the blue ribbon is my Liberated Log Cabin quilt. This quilt was also accepted into the Fiberworks 2019 Exhibit that will be in Tulsa October 4 - November 24, 2019.


All four of the quilts in the above picture are mine. The quilt with the red ribbon is Sticks & Stones, which was exhibited in Fiberworks 2018. 


I entered two quilts into our guild's quilt challenge, which was to take one of three vintage quilt blocks (hexagon, fan, or maple leaf) and make a modern quilt with it; I chose the maple leaf for both of my quilts. The two quilts in the above picture are mine; the one on the left won a white ribbon.

Curated Quilts Mini Quilt Challenge - Black and White II

Here is my second submission to the mini quilt challenge. I'm not sure how strictly the black and white criterion will be applied, so this may not be considered. But it certainly won't be considered if I don't enter it.


Curated Quilts Mini Quilt Challenge - Black & White

I actually have two submissions for the newest mini quilt challenge from Curated Quilts magazine - here is my first:

Japan Scrapbook Pages Part 1

A good friend and I recently took a trip to Japan with Country Heritage Tours, a quilt tour company. We thought that the main highlight of the trip would be the Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival, but there were so many other wonderful places to see and things to do that the quilt show, while fabulous to see, was just one more. We both enjoyed almost everything about the trip (except for having to remove our shoes at several places; we both wear orthotics in our shoes and find it very uncomfortable to walk without them). I have completed 11 scrapbook pages of the trip that I will be sharing over the next few days, and several of the places we went didn't allow photos to be taken inside. As always, you can click on the pages to see them larger and read the journaling.
