Water Trio

Hello everyone.  Todays Photograph 101 assignment… Water.

I love drinking water, especially when it’s Jasmine/Rooibos tea.  I’ve had three kitchen fires in my life, but not a one was because of boiling water.  I hope you enjoy this little collage I’ve put together.

Happy quilting,

Fellow Quilter,

Quilts of the Plains 2014 – Another Year of BEAUTIFUL Quilts!

QOTP_2014_Image_001Hello everyone.  It’s been a busy summer here in Wray, Colorado.  We did host the annual Quilts of the Plains show on Main Street on June 21, 2014.  Once again, the antique quilts and the smaller items were showcased at our gorgeous Wray Museum.

Thanks to all the sponsors, volunteers, and especially the quilters!  The winning quilt was by Hazel Chapman and her Grand-daughter.  It was a beautiful appliqued quilt.

I won’t say a lot, but just invite you to peruse the show, by way of the photos I captured that day.  I really appreciate if you could leave a comment about the show – perhaps your favorite quilt, or something relevant to the show.

The photos can be viewed at my Quilts of the Plains 2014 Photo Album

I hope you are enjoying this blog.

QOTP2012 Photos Posted

I took a photo of each quilt in the show, and I’ve uploaded them to an album on my webshots site.  Please click on the link to be taken to my album.  You may post comments to the photos.  I tried to list the quiltmaker and many times the quilt name in the caption under the photo.  You will also find a button on the right hand side to show you a slideshow of all of the images.  There are over 170 images, and you can order prints and other related items on the website.http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/album/583013853CnwwuF?vhost=home-and-garden

Please post your comments regarding the show here on my blog, so that I can hear about your experiences!

We had an awesome grouping of quilts…  129 of them to be exact.  The overall winner was Devonna Haines of Benkelman, Nebraska with her Sun Bonnet Sue Calendar quilt.  Other winners were Keeley Confer, also of Benkelman, Laura Nicks of Loveland, Colorado, Nicole Howard of Saint Francis, Kansas, Sheena Burr of Seibert, Colorado, Millie Bracelin of Wray, Colorado and Anita Hoyer of Elizabeth, Colorado.  Congratulations to all of the viewer’s choice favorites listed… however, each and every one of you who entered quilts was someone’s favorite quilter, so I think you are all winners!

The raffle quilt was won by Gene Bainbridge of Wray, Colorado.  Gene is the Mother of winner Anita Hoyer, a long-time participant in the show, and multiple viewer’s choice winner, as well.

If you have yet to pick up your quilt… they are being saved for you at Rainbow Fabrics in Wray.

Again, enjoy the photos… whether you were able to attend or not.  I think it gives a pretty good representation of the show.

The next years show is scheduled for June 22, 2013 and upcoming details will be posted at www.wraychamber.net/quiltsoftheplains.php so check back periodically for updates.

Sincerely,

Fellow Quilter,

Brian
