Fortunately, several of the blogs I follow have been taking time out to post so I could sneak a peak like A Quilting Jewel and Mommy's Nap Time and upload to flickr like Anne@PlayCrafts.
I'm SO EXCITED for our MQG president, my friend Tina for winning Judge's Choice for "Adrift" in the Use of Negative Space category. She is amazingly talented (obviously) and I'm thrilled that she was recognized by those in the know. Christa Quilts has a series of posts showing the quilt winners.
No need for me to pout at home. I'm having an exciting weekend helping out with our local PVQA quilt guild show. It's the 35th annual and this group knows how to get it done! We donated a basket for the raffle that has proven to be quite popular. You may recall I made an Echino Tote which is easier to see in person than this photo.
Friday was busy with set up in the day and the pre-view party in the evening. This year that included the judging the SBAMQG Modern Improv in Solids challenge. There were 7 entries, all terrific and I've heard from several participants that they enjoyed the process of making their quilt.
The Ribbon I made is not as fancy as the ones Elizabeth Hartman created for QuiltCon. We used a jumbo sized button and photo fabric keeping it minimalistic. The concept of fitting our square logo onto a round shape had baffled me in the design process, but I'm pretty please with the result. I'll be revealing a picture of the winning quilt on our blog soon.
I also surprised my sister at the show with a quilt which I can now officially rename "Luminosity for Linda". Previously posted bout it here and here. She loved it.

I usually write a specific post for WIP Wednesday but the guideline does say to link to one from the week so that's what I'll do. Congratulations to Lee at Freshly Pieced for taking 1st prize with her Lifesaver's quilt.
With the local quilt show and all of the browsing online about QuiltCon there hasn't been much progress on my WIP list since last week and I'm sure I'm not alone.
