SMQ Guild Quilt Show & Competition - 2008

Our 28th SMQ guild show will be May 16th through the 18th. Click your mouse on the poster to enlarge it for easier reading.
My contribution is making the special award ribbons as I did for last year's show. Here are the tops for the "Best In Show" bed and wall quilts. At some point I'll post a detailed tutorial on their construction, as well as photos of all of them completed.
I have two entries in this judged show, "Come With Me to the Kasbah" and a large lake piece. Photos of them will be posted after the show is hung.

To view some of the quilts in last year's show that I blogged about go here. To see the award winning quilts for all the shows going back to 2005 go to SMQ Guild's website.

Those of you reading this who live within driving distance and come to the show, please email me (address on my profile page). I'll be there for a period of time every day and would be happy to meet you and give you a personal tour of the show.

Nellie I like the ribbons you have made.
Your quilts will be admired from many quilters ....I'm sure.
I went on your group website and I've seen that every year you won and last year 3 Ribbons. This year will be the same.......I'm sure.
Enjoy your Quilt Show
ciao ciao

The ribbon rosettes are absolutely gorgeous. I've been involved with ribbon making for our last two quilt shows, and I know how much work it is. These are amazing.

How awesome to not only "win" a place at the contest -- but to "win" a lovely piece of your art, as well!!!

I am a graduate of Pellissippi State! Also, my post a while ago about the bicycle trek and being picked up by the lady with the truck? Well, I started in the parking lot of Pellissippi State. Whew - memories here about a life long ago. Wish I could see those quilts and actually MEET you. 8-)
