The New Jersey State Guild Quilt Show started yesterday. My friend Jill Reid won a 2nd place for her Hex Vex - Yes We Can Obama quilt. I think it deserved a first.
I received an honorable mention for my red and white applique quilt - the competition was tough. But, as my friend Susan pointed out, it was nice of them to match the ribbon to my quilt.
My friends and I met up at lunchtime to compare notes. The show was poorly attended - and unless it picked up today and tomorrow we doubt there'll be a show next year. Someone else said that the Lancaster Show has been discontinued. It's depressing.
I took a bunch of pictures of quilts I liked. This one by Susan Shure took 2nd place applique.
They had an exhibit of quilts done by the Brownstone quilt guild for their 25th anniversary. Quilts had to include 25 items. Here's Barb's quilt - Little Pink Houses.
And here's another I especially liked by Maureen (I can't read the last name).
Here's Therese standing in front of one of her favorites. We love Our Lady of Guadeloupe.
I'll post more over the next few days.
