    My Aunt Dot is an avid quilter in Alabama and told my parents about a quilt show she was entering...and my parents decided to enter the quilt I made for my dad into the show! Here is the picture of my quilt (USNA) and the other one is my Aunt's quilt. My 1st quilt show!

    This is Great! You really did a nice job on it. I hope you get a ribbon. I bet you would have been nervous if you had been making it for show. Aren't you glad you didn't know?

    Steph

    Congratulations on entering your quilt in the show, Aunt Dot needs a well earned pat on the back.
    We are constantly being told at out Guild Group to enter our quilts into the shows. So far I haven't had enough nerve. Afterall without all the participants there wouldn't be any shows for us all to visit.
    Keep us updated with the progress please.

    Thanks everyone! I never would have thought to enter one myself....much too nervous that my work would not be "good" enough, but now I know how exciting it is to see my quilt hung up there, and I just may enter one on my own up here in MN!! Thanks for all the compliments!

    Cool! Congrats!!!
    Your first entry in a quilt show! Can't wait to hear how it turns out.
    Your quilt is very pretty, but I think you already know that.
    Your aunts Spinning Star is awesome! I have the pattern and will do it one of these days. Just have to get brave enough for it.

    How exciting for you to have a quilt in a show! :lol: What a nice thing to do! And I agree that I would be too nervous about being judged!
    I do put quilts in our local guild shows, but have never been brave enough for anything beyond that. We do have award winning quilters in the group, but I know them! :?

    Oh, Steph--this is so exciting!!! I think it is so neat that your parents wanted your father's quilt in the show too. Now you know just exactly how proud of you they are for making such a masterpiece for him. It looks wonderful hanging there!! I wish you could go to the show and see it in person.

    Your aunt's quilt is great too. If I were just a little closer, I would run over today and take in the show.

    Thank you sooooo much for sharing this fun and exciting news with us.

    Thanks Marcia! I wish i was closer too, for many reasons besides just the quilt show (it would give us a chance to shop together!)!! It, is was quite the honor for my folks to want to submit the quilt - I'm still a little giddy over it!
