Iron Quilter? A HUGE SUCCESS!

March 21, 2011

What a fun afternoon. Here’s what happens when teams of quilters are given fabrics and embellishments they must use to create a bound quilt whose dimensions are at least 15″.

Thee five pieces were judged by the quilters for their favorite and by the judges for best use of embellishment. This quilt, #4, was the People’s Choice.

And this was its team of creators – Holly, Michelle, Terri, and Eileen.

It’s always interesting to see what machines people bring for sewing competitions and sew-in. Above and below represents a 60-year difference in sewing machine – Karen with a modern one and Erike with her Singer Featherweight.

Ebony was the mastermind of this event, and it’s a keeper. She, president Beth, and treasurer Jen organized the bags of fabrics, embellishments, and batting each team received. Ebony and Jen then judged the five entries.

Here’s the “winning” piece with its team – Erika, Sarah, Donna, and Rachel.
