Several members of the Lake Norman Quilters (and many of their husbands and a son!!!) gathered yesterday afternoon to hang our quilt show. 230 quilts were hung in about 4 1/2 hours – a pretty incredible feat!
Once the quilts were hung, the winners were announced and ribbons given out. A committee of 9 ladies worked this year to make our ribbons:
Jean Newman made these teensy little yo-yo ribbons for our winners to wear on their name tags. When you’re at the show, look for ladies with these on their nametags- you’ll know they won a ribbon in the show.
One of my quilts, “Cold Foot Contest”, won first place in its category:
I’ll post more pictures tomorrow once I’m able to walk around the show and find all the winners. But I had to share Best of Show. I’m so excited for my friend who won! Susan Brubaker Knapp made this quilt and it’s the one her new book is based on:
If you’re in the area we’d love to have you come see the quilts. And we have many wonderful quilt vendors and one lady with hand dyed yarns!!!
