A Best of Show Ribbon for my Buddy

Fun weekend in Omaha for quilters, it is our local guild's annual quilt show.  My very good friend Leslie won a best of show for hand quilting award.  She handquilted on both sides of her embroidery lines in this little quilt, she did such a good job.  The quilt also won a blue ribbon for it's catagory, her embroidery and all of her hand work is phenominal. I love this picture of her,
  a well deserved award.

I had my quilt Bella Garden in the show and won a 2nd place ribbon in an applique catagory. The other couple pictures I wanted to share from the show were these  t-shirt qults. I thought it was unique to include the uniforms of these brother's quilts

I am having fun working on the red and green album.  I have a couple more blocks completed and  had snapped a picture of the first nine blocks together on my cork wall. 

We are enjoying a great laid back summer here in Omaha, happy stitching all!


  1. Do we get to see a picture of your applique quilt?? Please share with us!

    1. Hi Kerry, Click on McKenna Ryan on my sidebar Labels and there is a picture of the quilt, I did not even think to take a picture of it hanging in the show.
      PS..I totally understand liking Sue Garmen designs to the point of stalking, I saw her once in the vender areas at the Houston quilt festival and I just wanted to follower her and see what she bought.

  2. Congratulations on your ribbon!! I love your applique blocks - they look beautiful together. How many blocks are you planning to make?

    1. Hi Janet, at this point I plan to make 42, a 6 X 7 layout.
