The Des Moines Part of the National AQS Show

Last time I showed you a few of the great quilts in the national show.  Many members of our DM guild had quilts juried in to that part of the show.  We still had a great quilt show with the rest of our DM quilts.  Below is BEST OF SHOW bed quilt made my Mary M.

The other BEST OF SHOW was for a wall quilt.  This ribbon winner was Debra K.

BEST OF SHOW long arm quilting also went to Debra K.  Deb had done the piecing and appliqué, but she had not done her own quilting.

BEST OF SHOW regular sewing machine quilting:  Carole F. had done piecing, appliqué and quilting.  You can see that our show did not suffer by the loss of the ones juried into the AQS part of the show.  You can also see that we have fabulous appliqué gals!

Another appliqué that I really enjoyed was done by Julie P.

I am not a great at appliqué, but it probably is because I do not do much of it.  I need to practice and remember that these ladies have been doing it forever!

More Blue Ribbons on appliqué quilts.  I did not look up which size category each one was in.  Pat B earned a blue with White Christmas

The butterfly work was awarded a blue ribbon and the work was done by Diana B.

Another blue ribbon!

Another blue ribbon!

On another post I will share some of the great pieced quilts.
