Challenge in the news! Now with awards included!

I apologize for not creating a post for the challenge sooner.  I still don't have all the names of the quilts.  And the member voting results have not been announced.  But we have been getting some media coverage from the challenge!

The Daily News ran a nice article, as always, featuring Gloria's Pearl Harbor quilt., which members awarded the prize for Best Execution of Theme.
We also impressed some members of the Channel 2 news team, at the library to cover another story.  I haven't been able to find it on their website, though.

Congratulations to the winners in the judging!  The judges were Linda Coats and Peggy Rich.

First place:  "Picasso Knew", by Val Schultz

In the member voting, Val also won  the award for Machine Quilting.

Second Place:  "Blizzard of '58", by Cynda Watroba

In member voting, this quilt also won Third Place and Creativity

Third Place: "Dawn of the Nuclear Age", by Susan Rathbun

In member voting, this quilt won the First place prize!
