    Some berry pie won 1st place. Some kind of pumpkin pie with pecans and heavy whipping cream got 2nd I think. I don't know what got 3rd but it wasn't me. I tasted the coconut cream which I didn't think was very good and a camel custard pie I ate about 2 bites and didn't like it so I tossed it out. That's all I had. The noise was so bad I couldn't wait to get out of there. There were 2 teams of cheer leaders that performed. Just little grade school girls, one dance team of the little ones and a tikondo team did quite a bit of performing.Linda got sick and didn't go so I had to tell them about her spiral and her star quilt and all about mine too. Wish she would have been able to go too but I took the pics and sent them to her. Hope I win that Raffle. I don't know when it's over.

    Glad you liked all of them. The girls that did the iris quilt didn't come so I don't know anything about it. I only know it was gorgeous. I'll never had quilt but glad some people do. Good night!

    I don't know when they are going to pick a winner. I didn't even think to ask. Didn't think it would be me but then who knows?

    Thanks for sending the pictures. My favorite is the one with the Irises. I wish you had close ups of it and the one with the pink roses!

    Hi Connie,

    I'm another Coloradoan, up in here in Woodland Park. I didn't know you had quilt shows in your small town, that's wonderful!! We'll be having our 3rd annual quilt show this July. I'll post a date when I get it. It would be so nice to meet some other neighbors in the state that are on this board.

    I have to admit, my fav is the Irises one, too. Looks like there are many talented folks in your neck of the woods. Keep up the great work!! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Happy quilting,

    Karla

    Hello Karla,

    There are a lot of quilters in Colorado. Last year they had a big show down in Denver at the Capital. They had quilts hanging on every floor. I think I have a CD of the quilts there that were on display. Do you ever go to the Denver Shop Hop? That's the next quilt I'm gonna make soon, from the 2008 shop hop. Don't know if I'll ever make it up there but it sounds nice. I have a breathing problem and can't manage to breathe good enough at heights above Denver. Someday I'm hoping to move to sea level. That is if I can get my husband out of Colorado. With the economy the way it is it will be a long time before he can retire. You should come down here to the shop hop though. Keep in touch and I'll let you know when I hear about it. They have 2 buses that will drive you around to all the shops. Last year I missed the bus. I had to drive by myself all over the place. We used to even go to Bergen Park but last year they weren't on the tour I'll PM you my e-mail address..

    It's not hard to learn. You'll do fine.
