Best Use of Scraps goes to Cindy K. Her husband now needs some new shirts, and maybe he'll get to put HIS quilt in his truck now.
Best Traditional goes to Juanita S.
Hope you had a chance to get a close up - every one of the appliqued blocks where outlined in chain embroidery.
Best Non-Traditional to Jenell H.
Paperpiecing and using her own techniques resulted in this gorgeous sunflower entry.
Best Use of Color went to Donna J.
Count those triangles - yike! Donna may see the imperfections, but for the rest of us - where and who cares?
And Members Choice went to Frances B. with her water color. And to think there was another center that she took out, learned from it, and then gave us this. Here is someone that is dedicated to the end result no matter what.
This years Guild Challenge was jammed packed with so many great quilt offerings, that I for one, am very thankful that I did not have to judge.
And Susie did her first minature - she put it under glass as this may be the only one she ever does, so it better stay prestine.
Jan tried her hand at using her left over strip pieces in the flowers.
Cindy was so ambitious that she had two entries.
Karen not only likes quilting, she likes bird watching also - her entry was a combination of both.
Stacey has the perfect spot in her twice re-done basement for her strip entry, Americana of course.
Judy's Wild Child will be in the mail soon to her daughter back east.
Sara took a regular pattern and updated the center applique - great job.
Carol loves Holly Hocks and did an awesome job showing them off.
Vevia's Storm at Sea reminds her to not be anxious and to trust.
Jeanette did a fantastic job on this "started way back" UFO. That's a lot of little pieces woman.
Audrey learned a new technique on the bus TO DesMoines and was able to take drawings that Paul did for her and make them into an offering that will last through the years. Two artists in one family is not fair.
Thank you to all that had an entry into this years Guild Challenge. And thank you Erlene for the fine job you did with coming up with the Flex Plan idea and carrying it out to the end. Anyone interested in chairing 2012 Guild Challenge - sign up with Carol B and then go see Erlene to find out the steps involved. Erlene has some pointers she will be glad to share.
