    My quilt

    I was asked to post a picture of my quilt in the pictures section of the board...so here it is.

    This is the first quilt I ever entered in a quilt show...I entered it into the Davey Crockett Quilt Show in Crockett, Tx. in November and won the blue ribbon. I entered it into the Quilts on the Bayou show in Jefferson , Tx. in January and won Best use of color ribbon and the 2nd place ribbon in Viewers Choice. I have sent in my paperwork to enter it into the Azalea Quilt Show in Tyler ,Tx. in March and am hoping for another ribbon.

    The pattern is "woodland Creatures" by Rosemary. It was a lot of fun to make and I loved picking out all the fabrics. It is all done by machine...piecing, applique' and quilting.

    This is an awesome quilt. It is small wonder that you are winning ribbons with it, and will probably win many more!

    Love it! I'm always envious of people who can do such a lovely job of applique - I'm sure you'll win a lot more ribbons with this one.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I see many more ribbons in that quilt's future! It is really something...I would love to see it in "real". How long did it take to make that?
