Challenge results

Gosh in all the energy it was taking to organize Quiltfest, I had put out of my mind that the results were announced last week for the club challenge. Once seeing all the wonderful quilts on stage and the level of skill and interpretation, I could see how it would have been difficult to judge.
 We were given an 8" square of the featured green bug print, with the option to purchase more. The size restriction was limited to no bigger than 40" x 50"and it had to be 3 layers and a cot quilt.

Advanced Section
1st - Myself - flower quilt
2nd -Griet Lombard
3rd - Griet Lombard

 Intermediate section
 1st - Kathy Inns
2nd  - -Susan Riley
3rd - Denise Bradbury

Judges choice - Helen Cole

I had two entries the first was a lovely yellow quilt, which didnt place , but I was really happy with the over all look  of this quilt.

My second entry which I have to admit I was cutting it down to the wire to complete on time was the winning one. It is a lovely flower quilt and if you look closely, but not too close you will see the wee bugs, snails & mushrooms fussy cut and stitched to the quilt. 
I finished it off with free motion quilting in white thread. Its very bright & cheery and I Iove the look of this one. Probably my new favorite  . . . till the next one!
 I will have patterns available shortly, but if you would like a copy of the pattern, please email me at
