Yoo Woo at a local quilt show

My quilt guild is hosting a local quilt show at Octoberfest
this weekend in Lebanon, TN.
I volunteered to help hang the quilts this
afternoon.  One perk of hanging the quilt
you also get to see the ribbon winners.
Look what I saw first thing

 I talked my friend Ralph into letting me enter the
 memory quilt I made
for him made from his parents clothing.
Remember the first one with his brothers and sister's  names,
all nine of them.
1st place in pieced and quilt by 1 person medium size.
Don't you just love that one behind mine.
But wait...
The quilt I quilted for Barbara won 2nd place.
Congrads Barbara!!!
There's more...
My ICON quilt I made for my son,
later renamed
"Ian's Place" won 3rd.
I showed a peek of the next one but never the whole quilt
I'll show more pictures when I get it back.
 This one won 3rd place in the appliqued wallhanging class.
My friend, Janet, wallhanging in under mine, she won 2nd place.
Am I tooting my own horn?
So exciting. 
I am on cloud nine.
I had one more quilt at the show but it was not
 juried because it fell into the same class as Ian's Place.
There were so many beautiful quilts and I feel so fortunate
to have won.
We don't have enough room to hang every quilt,
so some have to folded or draped.
Like I said there were some beautiful quilts
A lot of talented ladies in our guild.
I'll show more pictures soon of the other quilts.
I had to take these pictures with my cell phone
and cannot download all of them at one time.
If your in the area visit Octoberfest and
vote for your favorite quilt.
Lots of fun and activities.
