Big Suprise

Here I am with my award winning quilt.  Yes, I did say award winning.  I enter the "Omigosh" quilt in the Cobblestone Quilt show, in Charleston SC.  And I won a blue ribbon.  That is 1st place in the category of bed quilts.  Then I found out I was a very close 2nd in viewers choice.  Talk about surprises.... I really was.  If this quilt looks familiar, that is because it is my header picture.  And I have posted about making.  You know I have lost a lot of weight and you can really tell it in this picture.  I was surprised, again.

This is the quilt that beat me for viewers choice.  You cant see the quilting in the picture, but it was good. 

This is a baby quilt I made for one of DH former co-workers.  He has all girls and finially has a grandson.  He is so happy.  The wide fabric has buge and thing on it and the smaller fabric is camo.  Camo worked out good because he works for the SC National Guard.  The back has deer on it for the deer hunting I am sure they will do together.

I have caught up a little more.  I have more for you, but a little at a time is all I can do right not.

Happy Quilting, Vicki

PS: remember this Sat, March 17 is National Quilt Day
