    River Heritage Quilt Guild Show in Cape Girardeau, MO 9/22/12

    I would like to post some photos of the first quilt show I have ever attended AND entered! It truly was a wonderful experience, and I am glad I was talked into entering. Donna convinced me to enter, and I actually placed! 3rd place isn't too bad for a first entry. Autumn Dresdan was made for a friend who loves autumnal colors. I used my grandmother's old cardboard template for the plates. MANY thanks goes to my wonderful long arm quilter, Ann, who is a quilting goddess! I do have to admit, I can see the competition aspect of a quilt show, and now I will be better prepared if ever I decide to enter again. Enjoy! (Donna is pictured with her beautiful civil war quilt.)

    Congratulations on your win - it's a great quilt.

    Those are some very nice quilts with interesting details.
    The curved border treatments on the fan and butterfly quilts are fabulous.

    Your Dresden's are wonderful ... they definitely deserved a ribbon and it looked like pretty stiff competition! Congratulations. Your friend's Civil War quilt was beautiful also. Great show - thanks for the pics.
