After the Show

We closed our 14th Biennial show with the thought that all that work was well worth the result. Our attendees were effusive with their compliments; lots of people walked out with bags of new fabric, patterns, silent auction and boutique pieces. Many quilters won awards they were not expecting, and many people were amazed at the talent exhibited. Voters picked Ella Lucas' Mini Block Explosion for the Viewers' Choice award. Ella hand-pieced and appliqu├ęd 180 four-inch, scrappy blocks using patterns from Better Homes and Gardens 501 Quilt Blocks. Each block is framed with a ¼" green border and set on point. They are then set off with sashing and borders of cream fabric.
Viewers' Choice:  Mini Block Explosion by Ella Lucas
Mary Ann Scruggs of Hattiesburg was the lucky winner of the donation quilt, Life on Our Planet
