I hope you have all enjoyed the photos of the quilts I posted from the Kaleidoscope of Quilts. There was also an "Iron Quilter Competition" that was so much fun to watch.
The Iron Quilter Competition was comprised of three teams that were selected randomly from the guilds who expressed interest in participating. Each team was given a bag of fabric and embellishments and they had to create and finish a quilt or wall hanging larger than 20" x 20". The completed quilts became part of the silent auction raising money for the Victory Center. The winning team was also given a check for 100.00 for their guild.
Black Swamp Quilt Guild (I'm a member) was Cindy Hufford and Mary Lee Grabowski.
AKA "Superfly Cindy & Mary Lee the Flying Nun"Gathering of Quilters (I'm a member of that guild too) was Amy Reitzel and Debbie Linenkungel.
Sheila Painter was the MC of the event.
Sorry for all the blurry photos below...but guess what....those girls were moving as fast as they could.
The clock was ticking and those gals were having a ball. The crowd was there to cheer them on and then a whistle was blown....what? A whistle?
Guess who showed up? None other than the quilt police....I'm surprised there were no tomatoes thrown.
There was a lot of laughter as these fellas pulled out their measuring tapes and flash lights.
And the winning quilt was made by none other than "Super Fly Cindy and Mary Lee the Flying Nun" from the Black Swamp Quilt Guild.
and third place went to Cheryl and Edie from the Cellar Sewers.
It sure looked like all 6 gals had a great time.
I think this would be a very fun addition to retreats and other sewcials.....not only a challenge but lots of laughter too.
