The 2008 SFT Quilt Show is history!

Carol Vermillion received the large quilt viewers' choice ribbon. Her quilt was a sunflowerquilt with an applique center and pieced blocks. She was thrilled with the honor. Her quilt is the one pictured.

Monica Prim received the small quilt viewers' choice ribbon. The quilt was a hand-embroidery, colored block center with 30's reproduction fabrics. I will try to get a picture of the quilt later. Congratulations to both winners.

The Donation quilt was won by a lady from Kansas City who had visited the show on Saturday. She was just tickled that I had called her and so surprised that she had won. We talked for quite a while as the idea of winning the quilt sunk in...I am so happy it went to someone so overjoyed to have it.

The quilt show was a great unifying experience for all the guild members. Everyone was there to help set up the show and everyone was there to help tear it down. We started at 4 pm and we were all walking out the door one hour later. Everyone just quietly went to work taking the quilts off of the frames, with others dismantling frames, and then carrying the frame to the trailers to be taken to storage.
Everyone enjoyed the quilt show. We usually have a show every third year, but there is talk of having a show every other year. It has been fun to be part of this group.
