Congratulations to All!

Everyone involved in this year's "Stitches in Time 2018" should be very proud of themselves for another great show!   It takes a lot of effort from a LOT of people to put this together every other year.  It's all worth it once we can say we're ready to open the doors to the public and we hear the oohs and ahhs!
Best of Show winner, Baltimore Garden, by Irene Bow
 (Also the winner for  Large Quilt Machine Appliqué)
We are especially proud to congratulate the award winners, as selected by our panel of judges: Linda Hunter, Nancy Hyde and Alice Donaldson.  They spent several hours examining, contemplating and finally making their choices.  In no particular order, please enjoy the winners!

We'd like to thank everyone who attended the show! We'll be back again in 2020.
If you weren't able to make it to the show, you can see the quilts here.  The names are covered by posties as photos were taken while the judges were still working.  Since I was trying to keep out of their way, and was interrupted a few times, apologies to anyone whose quilt is missing from the album.  It was unintentional!

It's Show Time!!

Today is the day the members of the quilt show committee have been planning for- the quilts are turned in and the show goes up!
 As quilts are turned in, they are sorted by the area in which they will hang.  

 It's a team effort getting everything where it looks the best.

 It's all worth it once the show is ready!

The Boutique is filling up quickly with all kinds of goodies made by our members!

Here's a few of the quilts that will make you say OOOH if you come to the show!!
