Quilt Show Wrap Up and Hand Dye Give Away


The show was wonderful! It is taking me along time to catch up with my real life after being gone for 3 days.
I was very happy that everything went smoothly and every single person that I talked to commented on how beautiful our show looked. We are a small guild, only 60 members but everyone contributes in many ways.
I am not going to post all the pictures here. You can go to our Penn Oaks Quilt Guild Newsletter to see most of the quilts.



Fallon, Griffin, Elliot and Maddy's Pumpkin Head Quilt won a Judges Choice ribbon! They were so happy, Maddy has already taken the ribbon home with her.


My Dear Diary quilt got a blue ribbon. It made all that work worth it!


I also won a Judges's Choice for this little quilt, the one that was made with the leftovers of another quilt!



This is Betsy Moses and her quilt won Best of Show. They loved her borders, they even measured them with a tape measure!



I celebration of our wonderful quilt show I am giving away all these hand dyed fabrics and........


this adorable pin cushion made by Robin, one of our members.







Some close ups for you to see. The colors look truer in the picture of them all together.

Here's what you do. Leave me a comment and tell me what kind of raffles do you like and dislike at a quilt show. Become a follower if you aren't already. I will pick the name next Wednesday May 15th.
Good Luck!

Kelly

  2. Good morning from sunny KY!

    I am all about the fabric when I enter raffles. Maybe a few gadgets and thread but I won't enter if it's something I don't really want. Better that it should go to someone who does want it than me who will let it linger and then give or donate it. But any fabric and I'm all in....never met a piece I didn't think I would eventually use!

  9. Hmmm, raffles - I usually enter for the guild's raffle quilt, but what I really like are the raffle baskets. Like, maybe about 10 baskets full of goodies maybe on a theme, like vintage fabrics/sewing, cooking, dogs, wine, but they all include some fabric (usually) too. Never won, but I always enter! Congrats on your ribbons!

  11. Congrats on all your ribbons! Well deserved. I think its always an honor to get a judges choice.
    Loved seeing your quilts at the show.
    Congrats to the Best of Show - her quilt is wonderful.
    I like raffle quilts and mini-quilt raffles. I don't like non-quilting related prizes, but that's just me.

    I usually buy a raffle ticket for a quilt and always for a fabric/gadget/pattern basket.

    Thanks for a chance at your generous giveaway.

  14. Congratulations on all those ribbons!! How exciting!! I'm so happy the Halloween quilt won a prize. As for raffles I like sewing related things like fabric or tools. My local quilt show was lucky enough to get sponsored prize of a sewing machine prize one year.

  17. Congratulations on all your ribbons!! Whoo hoo! I love your quilts, and I'm glad the judges did too.

    Wow, nice giveaway! I am a long-time follower.

    My favorite raffle is one we do at my guild. A basket stuffed to the gills with all batik fat quarters! We make lots of money on that one. I always buy lots of tickets for that one. :)

  28. Congrats on your ribbons. I love the raffle baskets offered at many quilt shows and prefer the ones filled with quilting fabric, patterns etc. Frankly I rarely buy a ticket for a guild's raffle quilt as I already have so many unless I find it to be something really special.

  30. Looks like a great show. Congratulations to Fallon, Griffin, Elliot and Maddy!
    The only raffles I have ever seen at quilt shows are for one specially made quilt. I would prefer a big basket of fabric so I could make my own!

  31. Congratulations on your well-deserved wins! And thanks for sharing this absolutely awesome fabric. As for raffles, I love baskets filled with an assortment of things - notions, thread, patterns, fabric. One of the local quilt shops in our area also gives certificates for long arm rental time at their shop.
