I had my first volunteer shift to work at the rodeo last night, so I got dressed and off to work I went.
I decided to pack my pen and paper and take notes of some of the winners. I only know of one of the other people who entered a quilt in the show. These entries are made by area Go Texas Committees all around, almost like an old county fair.
Sue Garman was the grand prizewinner; she won Best of Division, Best of Show and Judges Choice for her entry of Sarah’s Revival. This is a beautiful quilt with lots of needle-turn applique!
The Cherry Pie quilt is done by Jackie Hillman of Waller County. She got Best of Division and Best of Show.
The Crazy Quilt called Trees & Things is done by Jan Campbell of Brazoria SW County, she got Best of Division.
Quiet! Be Still was made by Charlene Everitt of San Jacinto County.
My quilt represents the Baytown/Highlands and her name is Lincoln’s Ruby Watch and I was thrilled with my blue ribbon.
The Gardeners was sewn by Nina Ellis of Anderson County.
The Chicken quilt was made by Mattie Ehler of Conroe/Willis County.
There are lots of quilts there and more ribbons. Go down and show your support of all the art that is on display. I hope you enjoy the show, I do apologize about the lighting, some of the pictures don’t really show how well they really look.
I checked into my volunteer post and pulled out my stitching bag. I do love the ability to “sew and go”. I had worked on my Primitive Gatherings “Words to Live By” Patience block at home and I was hoping to finish it before I had to work. I stitched some in the office and after I got to my final post I was able to finish my block. I was one happy girl!
This morning Katie, Mom, Kynlee and myself drove to Montgomery to see the venue for her wedding and we did wedding stuff most of the day. This evening I was able to pull it all together and finish the quilt completely!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
