Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

The Asheville Quilt Show was this past weekend and my quilt, “Garden at Midnight” won the “Best Machine Workmanship” award!  This guild has many incredible quilters, so this is an incredible honor.  The “Best Hand Workmanship” award went to  Linda Roy for her quilt called “Ruffled,” which is pictured below:

You can’t see it in the photo above, but she created a very interesting edge finishing that included ruching all along the edges.  This added a very intriguing texture and I’m always impressed when someone does something special for the binding.  Personally, I am always at a stage of feeling “let’s just get this thing done,” and I’m pretty much out of any creative steam by that point.  The quilt that one the “Best of Show” award was called “Primrose and Promises” by Cathy Bingham and it is shown below:

This is what the quilts looked like when you first entered the hall:

The show was a great show and I spent a lot of money on the vendors.  It is always so inspiring to see so many quilts in one place, and I always leave with lots of ideas running through my head.  Thanks to everyone at the Asheville Quilt Guild for putting on such a great show!
