Nat’l Quilt Show Contestants

(Loren Justice, Gerry Smeltzer, dp, Edith harmer, Molly Miles and Pat Durbin)

My quilt guild in Eureka has had a group of quilts juried into the national show in Nashville this August.  We entered a group of eight quilts in “The Ultimate Quilt Guild Challenge”.  We were one of the ten groups in the country to be selected as semi-finalists and to possibly win one of the three monetary awards.  Our guild challenge was to individually create a quilt with the theme: A Peak into the Forest.   My quilt was created with hand-dyed fabric and photo-transfered images.  This is what “my forest” looks like at sunset at the end of the summer.

So we have sent eight quilts off for judging, and we hope that we can win some of the prize money for the guild.

    Our group got an “Honorable Mention”…..actually a 4th place among all those that entered. Not in the money round, but who can be disappointed?
