    We recently had a rather large quilt show. I, hopefully, am going to show you my "Strings of Purple" that didn't even get an honorable mention.

    It is a spider web pattern.

    Your quilt is just beautiful- can't believe it didn't win anything! Looks like it was a lot of piecing...nice job.

    I think your quilt is lovely and should have gotten some sort of recognition.

    It is a very nice quilt. Believe me you are not alone. I have entered in shows and never won anything either. I have however won ribbons at our county fair. I don't care though. I think it is great fun just to see my quilt hanging in the show and chatting with people about it. Not to mention the great opportunity it affords to get a real good picture of your quilt as your photo here shows :lol:

    There were almost 400 quilts and one judge -- many categories. This was in Pieced Team Large. I pieced it and a friend quilted it on her APQS machine.
