I finally finished my barn quilt. I made the top in 2013. I combined two quilt alongs from Bee in my Bonnet. I finished it in September while living in TX and then moved to MO in October four years ago. When one of the categories announced for our local quilt show was country homes I knew I needed to get this top quilted!
It was not a technical judging, area businesses hosted categories. All names were hidden from the judges. The country homes category was hosted by United Realty, who sold my house to me last year, and she picked my quilt! She said it was a quilt she would want to put on her bed. I got first place, I'm super excited!
I entered this quilt in the Wild about Animals category. This was part of a block exchange and a friend made the center cross stitch section for me. It also won first place in it's category!
They really liked the descriptions I wrote talking about my quilts. That is training I got from writing blogs. LOL This one was held by Caryl Stillings of the Ava Art Guild because she wanted an animal theme.
If you live near Ava, MO, the quilt show is running until August 24 or 26, I can't remember. It is free and being held at the Ava Art Guild Gallery.
I'll be sharing quilts by category all week!
Have you ever entered a quilt in a quilt show before?
