And the winners are...

Tonight at our final meeting/potluck dinner, the Viewers' Choice winners from our show Symphony of Spring, were announced. We were all thrilled with the winners!

The greatest number of votes went to My Flower Garden by Barb Perry. This quilt is hand-pieced and contains approximately 5,800 hexagons! Even the light background behind all the flowers is hexagons. (She also cut about 2,000 of the hexagon papers herself.) Once the main portion of the quilt was together, it was appliquéd to the borders. If you know Barb, you might know she is a devoted cat-lover, and hidden in a good number of the hexagons are little kitty faces! Congratulations Barb! Well deserved! You blow us away with your hand pieced hexies!

Priceless by Mary Brown was the next Viewers' Choice winner. The design is known as Boston Common, and Mary did an exquisite job on the hand quilting - it really caught the eye of many visitors at our show. Mary travels the greatest distance to attend our meetings, coming all the way from Grand Manan Island as long as the weather co-operates and the ferry crossing is not too rough... Mary we are so thrilled that you continue to travel to be with us each month, and we hope you'll choose to continue joining us for a long while yet! Congratulations Mary! Your beautiful quilt is well named, and very deserving!

Roberts' Garden by Alice Kirkpatrick was the third Viewers' Choice winner. Alice is a long time guild member and she has been producing exceptional quilts for many many years. Alice is not only a fine hand quilter, she also does top notch hand appliqué. This quilt features both of these talents as well as some three dimensional appliqué. Another beautiful quilt! Congratulations Alice! Another ribbon to add to your large collection!

Thank you to all who visited our show and voted. You did a great job of choosing our winners! We would not be able to award these ribbons without you and your input. We hope you are as pleased with the results as we are!
