Oye! Dios Mio! Don't you just hate sitting through meetings where people just have no idea how meetings should be run. And remember my rant about the money going to charity? Fully 3/4 of the meeting was dedicated to either the Giving Quilt (a guild formed strictly to funnel quilts to charity) and people trying to convince our guild to give our money to Parker House (who used the money we gave them last year to take 8 kids to Disney World.) Geez.
The meeting should have been focused on the Challenge and the members who made quilts to put in the challenge.
I think the priority of the guild has changed. And not for the better.
But let me tell you about the GREAT QUILTS.
There were 25 quilts hanging in the challenge. The Challenge was to use a single block in any way that created a secondary challenge.
I am telling you, my quilt is stinkin' cute. Just plain stinkin' cute. I got 3rd place. I would have voted for the one that won First Place (had mind not been so stinkin' cute!)
I am calling it At The Zoo! Like Simon and Garfunkle's hit off the same name.
Here are the rest of the quilts There are some beauties in there. Each quilt has blue tape outlining the single block that creates the pattern. See if you can see them all.
And which one would you have voted for?
You can see mine in the background there.
The grey and white one took first place!
This one won 2nd place
