Well, friends, there was not enough time, nor energy, to blog the quilt show yesterday. But here are the winners. As time goes by, I'm also going to show you some of my favorites.
The award for Most Improved Quilter went to Jackie Greenwalt of Odessa. Jackie, in spite of health challenges, has been working very hard. I don't have pictures of her quilts, yet, but hope to have some soon.
The Best Antique Quilt and the Best Youth Quilt are side-by-side in this picture. The antique quilt (beige background) is owned by Nancy Wenke of Odessa. The youth quilt was made by Emily Nixon, also of Odessa. Emily calls her quilt "Laura Llama's Turquoise Squares".
Another winning youth entry was a set of pieced blocks by Katreace Boss of Odessa, to the lower right of Emily's quilt. The pieces with black backgrounds were done for a 2012 challenge by members of the Inland Northwest Machine Quilters: Shelley Sieverkropp, of Almira, and Anita Pederson of Spokane.
The award for the Best Pieced Quilt went to "One Block Wonder" by Judy Miles of Soap Lake, WA.
