Quilt Show News

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I did! This was the weekend of the East Cobb Quilters Guild Quilt Show, Georgia Celebrates Quilts. I entered three quilts for the first time in the show and guess what…


I won third place for Stars Around the Garden for one person, Combination category. I was so excited. I was glad my daughter went with me to the awards ceremony. She took the pictures for me.


This quilt took 8 long years to complete. It’s queen size and hand appliqued and hand quilted. You can read all the details about this quilt here.

I also entered Maggie’s First Dance in the Combination category and Desert Dance in the Special Techniques category since it was embroidered.



These are the quilts that I made as a featured blogger for Maggie’s First Dance BOM by Jacquelynne Steves last year. You can read more about these quilts here. The quilt show is every two years, so I think I’ll have to come up with something between now and then to enter. Maybe a Mini!

There were so many good quilts in the show. I am going to show you some of my favorites. It’s interesting to me that the ones I liked were more on the modern side and a few of the art quilts. I think I liked the modern ones because of the quilting.

Here we go…


A view from the top.


This was Best in Show and won first place for Applique. It was hand appliqued and hand quilted. Every time I see a Baltimore Album quilt, I want to make one. This one was absolutely beautiful. I’m sorry I don’t have the names of the makers for most of the quilts.


This is Sedona by fellow Silver Comet Stitchers guild member, Tracy. She won 2nd place in either the two person Combination or Special Techniques category, (can’t remember which one).

Here they are wrapping everything up. The East Cobb Quilters Guild did an excellent job with the show this year, especially in the variety of quilts that were in the show.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the show.

    Congrats! That is a beautiful quilt! I don’t know if I could have stuck with it for eight years though. And the quilt show was wonderful. Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you I feel like I have been to the show! and Congrats on your ribbon, the quilt was beautiful. I am a hand applique nut so I really appreciate the work you put into your quilts and to hand quilt them that is quite and accomplishment. I just joined Jacquellynn Steves stichery club because my second love is embroidery and can’t wait to start some of her projects. Again congratulations you are an inspiration.

    I loved seeing all the quilts-so much talent. I’m sure you can come up with something spectacular in 2 years to enter [maybe 3 again!?]. Dare I say I’d love to do a Baltimore Album QAL-maybe we do a game plan in the fall.
