Hill n Hollow Quilt Show 2009

Set up took two days and lots of people. Judging 400 quilts with one NQA judge was tiring. The judge was wonderful and all the people who pitched in to get this show on the road were cheerful under some adverse situations that cam up.

Second Place ribbon on the little red bird quilt, the ribbon was almost larger than the quilt. This is appliqued, thread painted and then embellished with beads and hand quilted.
Honorable Mention on the painted whole cloth Orange Hibiscus. This was a Fast Friday Fabric Challenge piece. It was done with a gel glue resist and textile paints. It has embroidered accents.
This was my other Second place ribbon. I almost didn’t enter it since I didn’t feel it was grown up enough to show. Maybe if it does more growing it will be ready to be juried for a larger show. The mums are constructed of a variety of yarns covered with tulle. Second place wasn’t bad for it’s maiden voyage.
This is dye painted and accented with acrylics. It was also a Fast Friday Fabric Challenge piece. It was a study for a finished piece that was in the April 2009 Quilting Arts Magazine’s Rock On Challenge. I was sort of amazed that it took a first place in it’s category.

Another First place ribbon for Oda-Pagoda. This started as a Fast Friday Fabric Challenge and then I kept on taking it to this level. Most people who see it love it. Notice the awful chicken wire behind it? Someone unknown “borrowed” the professional display stands for the small quilts and didn’t return them. We scrambled to find something to display these pieces and this is all we could come up with.
