I did not have a chance to go to the fair to see the quilts this year but many of you shared pictures with me. Thank you!
These are winners by some of our Quilt Circle of Friends quilters.
|The biggest ribbon of the entire show goes to Bonnie Nelsen for this Best of Show quilt. Look closely to see the striped piping around each pieced circle. Julia Swallow, our Monday gal, did the extraordinary machine quilting on this.|

The first pattern is made with the Cathedral Window blocks, very cool. We will put together a demo of their easy technique.
The 4th pattern, Sweet Jane, is currently under construction by Lonnie K. She is featuring the new Grunge Dots in this pattern. It will be a beauty, I'm sure.
And any pattern under the Atkinson Designs label are always excellently written and tested.
