Quilt Show Highlights and Award Winners

 The Museum Quilt Guild wishes to thank everyone who came to our show!  

We hope you enjoyed viewing it as much as we enjoyed being able to (finally!!) have a show again.

Many many hands go into making a successful show, and I don't mean to leave anyone out, but very special thanks go to  Quilt Show Chair Elaine Lemley and Set-up Chair Cathy Schmeider and her husband, Bill.  

Hopefully you can see all of the quilts here - when I get the photo album up.  (If the link is here, there's an album.  If I do it right, you won't need a password.  Stay tuned.)

If that doesn't work, try here.  Neither should require a password.  

Meanwhile, here are the winners of the awards in our show- minus Viewer's Choice, since those will be announced at our November meeting.
