This past weekend was the Edmond Quilt Festival sponsored by the Edmond Quilt Guild. Our guild is full of many talented quilters and we proudly showed off our best.
The show marked my small group's debut of the slice quilt we produced earlier this year. It received much positive attention during the show.
In addition to this work, my small group had many quilts entered into the show and won many ribbons. Charlotte led the pack by taking Best of Show with her quilt "Into the Woods."
Three of the four other special awards were also won by members of my small group. (I just noticed that each of these three quilts also took 3rd place in their categories.) Charlotte received the Mayor's Choice Award for "Field of Lilies."
Sarah received the Special Art Award for "Autumn Splendor."
I received the UCO President's Choice Award for "EQG Block of the Month."
Since the president was unavailable to come choose a quilt himself he sent the Dean of the College of Mathematics and Science to make the choice in his place. Dr. Barthell spent nearly an hour carefully studying all of the quilts and asking many pertinent questions about quilting before making his selection. He ultimately chose my quilt for many reasons, not the least of which was the color scheme which closely reflects the university's colors. I had a chance to visit with him after he made his selection and I think he was rather pleased to discover that I'm a graduate of the university with a degree in Physics Education.
My small group took home many other ribbons in addition to the ones already mentioned including a first place ribbon for me on my pink and green sampler.
Here are some other quilts that won ribbons for friends of mine.
As I look over my list of winners I see that my friends won more ribbons than just these, but I guess I failed to get pictures of them all. I'll leave you here with more quilts from the show.
