Countdown to Show Time

Our Show Catalog
Our guild's show, Pine Belt Quilters 15th Biennial Fiber Art & Quilt Show, opens tomorrow in Hattiesburg, MS. Lake Terrace Convention Center's exhibit hall is filled with 340 judged quilts plus a Hoffman Challenge trunk show.
Linda Flanders prepares an 8-1/2" x 11" first-class show catalog which contains descriptions of all the entries plus sponsors, vendors, some guild history, and map of the show. My responsibilities have been helping to proof this catalog and to solicit sponsors and ads. My last task has been to prepare the winners pages, which can't be done until the judging is completed and all awards selected. Keeping tabs on all the numbers, quilt names, makers' names, and awards is a daunting task, but lots of checking and cross-checking gets it as accurate as possible. 

I have five entries in the show. Here they are.
High Rise, 2nd in Pieced-Small Category

Leaf Study: Crotons, 2nd in Art Category
Color Bars: Yellow, HM in Pieced-Small Category
Tribute to Tigger, HM in Zoo Challenge Category
Fish Out of Water
The show opens tomorrow and runs for three days.

You've been going to town! Hope your wrist is well healed and that the injury has long since faded away.

To Norma, Tanya, and Julia--my goodness! You three are quilters who constantly inspire ME! Julia has quilts in our show and won a Judge's Choice and Best Domestic Machine Quilting award. Norma and Tanya are my Internet friends whom I'd love to get to meet in person some day.
