Winning quilts

Well .... I guess a few of you have been wondering which quilts won those ribbons in my last post.  All for hand quilting.  Without further ado here they are:

Judged, First place - Hollyhocks in a Castle Garden (go here to read about it)
Judged, First place - Gathering Pumpkins (go here to read about it):
Judged, Third place - Sky Jewels (go here to read about it)
Viewer's Choice, First place - Secret Garden

This is the first time I'm showing this quilt and there is a story behind it, but that will be on another post.
My challenge quilt that I donated sold for $50.00.  Yeah!
It was a great show.  The show earned lots of money for our local hospital.  Life is good!

Yesterday was guild day and after the meeting, 22 women stayed behind to learn about hand quilting.  I'm going to teach my secrets to anyone who is interested.  Needless to say, I was shocked to see so many ladies.  If I can do it, they can to and I will be thrilled to see those ladies win ribbons at our next show in 2019.

I'm linking up to Needle and Thread Network.

Have a great day!

Wow, you are a prolific quilter. Congratulations! I can't imagine how many hours "Hollyhocks in Castle Garden" took... I think it is my favourite in this post. So pretty.

Thank you for linking to The Needle and Thread Network's WIP Wednesday.
