Award Ribbons for SMQ Guild 2012 Show

"My Velvet Elvis" was delivered along with the special award ribbons for this year's quilt show. Once again, I was in charge of getting them made. A number of talented guild members were invited to create rosettes to represent specific awards. The ribbons are printed on my home printer and then I construct each one.

"Surface Embellishment" rosette is created by Bridgette Matlock, the chairperson for this year's show. The "Hand Workmanship" rosette is created by Isumi Sasaki.

"Innovative Design" rosette is created by Tone Haugen Cogburn and the "Traditional Design" one by Loretta Painter.

"Novice Quilt" rosette is created by Jane Dunham and the "Scrap Quilt" one by Leona Harden.

"Machine Workmanship" rosette is created by Cyndi Herrmann and the award presented in memory of one our deceased guild members is created by Linda Roy.

"Just For Fun" rosette is created by Sandy Kambic and the "Viewer's Choice" one is created by me.

I also created the two "Best In Show" rosettes as well as the one for the "Judge's Choice" award ribbon.

When the show is over this next Sunday I'll post which quilts won these awards.

Go here for a tutorial for how I construct the award ribbons.
Go here to see ALL the ribbons (and the quilts they were awarded to) for the years I've been in charge of creating them.

I love seeing these ribbons. Each one worthy of a ribbon itself!

They are all beautiful ribbons and very creative. I can't wait to see them in person.

I love those award ribbons. They are as innovative as the quilts themselves.

Hi, Nellie--I had no idea of the possibilities! Those rosettes are amazingly beautiful. What a wonderful idea that so many participated to create them. Such variety!
best, nadia

It's so cool that the ribbon-winners not only get the joy of winning, but they also get a little art work with it ! Yea!
