I live in St Marys County in Maryland. I belong to a very wonderful guild. There are lots of quilting opportunities in our area but many of them are during the day. This is not possible for me as I work outside the house. My guild meets at night.
We have a local quilt show for county residents every couple of years. I have been working on a large block of the month over a little over a year. It is called Civil War Tribute. I saw this quilt in Lancaster a couple of years ago and was gobsmacked.
I wanted to make it in red white and blue instead of the usual civil war colors.
It barely fit on my Handiquilter and I quilted swirls all over it. Next was binding and a sleeve.
It was one of my entries in our local show and I was both thrilled and surprised to win Best In Show. BUT this is viewer judged and it was impressive hanging up. I a not by any means a show quilter but I am proud of this quilt. This quilts is on our bed as I make quilts to be used.
