Liz's quilt wasn't the only one to win a ribbon at the Eastern Long Island Quilters Guild 2011 quilt show in June. Ann's French braid quilt and her circle quilt also got ribbons. Heck, I even picked up a few of my own : ) This first quilt is the pattern "Neo Stella" from the bookStrataVarious Quilts: 9 Fabulous Strip Quilts from Fat Quarters by Mary Hoover and Barbara Persing. I made it in my favorite color combination. It's also the one hanging behind me in My HQ Story video and now hangs on the wall at the end of my HQ Fusion.
This one is only 16" x 20" and I made it for a challenge with my online group. It took every fiber of my being not to make that fish bright yellow.
The 30's quilt I quilted for the raffle
Ann's quilt (I guess I was too busy admiring it at the show--I don't have a photo of it hanging completed at the show with the ribbon)
This is a Judy Neimeyer pattern painstakingly pieced by Liz in brilliant colors. I made quilting suggestions, we discussed the options, and Liz made the final decisions. Here it is with a second place ribbon in the Duet Small category and a merit award for color in the Eastern Long Island Quilters Guild quilt show in 2011.
And here it is with a first place ribbon in the Small Professionally Quilted category at the 2011 Dutchess Heritage quilt show!
