|Special thanks to the crew (plus picture-taker Frank) that showed up early this morning to hang quilts for our Little Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.|
|In first place is this beautiful black quilt by Abbie Allen from Grimes. This was a block of the month quilt through HoopSisters.com. The entire quilt was done on the embroidery machine! A masterpiece indeed.|
In second place is Marilyn Monroe (quilt on the left in this picture) by Becky Irmenter from Waukee. Becky created this pictorial quilt, using different shades of blacks and whites. Amazing, isn't it?
Second, we asked our customers today to vote on our Just One Block Challenge. We had 30 blocks entered in this contest. Everyone started with a packet of fabric to which they could add from their on stash. Here are the top three.
|First place goes to Jackie Orton for this beauty.|
|Second place goes to Bonnie Nelsen for this original design.|
