Quilt show ribbons can be quite a lot of work to make, but for our quilt guild show this past weekend, one member made the ribbons on her embroidery machine. They were so cute! Every entrant who won a ribbon got the pin to the left with a button for each win in the color of the ribbon. My pin hand three white buttons for three Honorable Mentions.
For my friend Sandy M., here is a photo of our collaborative quilt with its ribbon (top left). It was in good company, as it hung right next to the Best of Show quilt.
This was the first win for my "Moonlight on Water" string quilt, below...
This quilt is heading to Asheville, NC next week to become the sample quilt for my June "String Quilt Blocks" class for the Asheville Quilt Guild.
This quilt (which you've seen several times on my blog before) did not win a ribbon this time, but you know it's my favorite. This is a photo of my son in Afghanistan, printed on fabric in poster form in four pieces. I painted the lower half of his body and gun, and fused most of the rocks around him. There is a lot of paint on the rest of the quilt too. This quilt is now retired and will hang in my studio.
