|Hattiesburg City Councilman Jeffrey George|
with Linda Ginn and Martha Ginn
Mayor Toby Barker issued a Proclamation of Pine Belt Quilters Day and City Councilman Jeffrey George did a ribbon cutting to open our show. Linda took the entire week off to work and enjoy the quilt show. She also had two quilts entered in the show, quite impressive for a less-than-two-years quilter, says her proud mom!
Elizabeth, My Almost Perfect Cat won a first place (blue) ribbon in the Art category, and The Window Watchers (featuring Rahrah, Tarbaby, and Elizabeth) won an honorable mention (white) ribbon. My other entries were Mississippi Orange Peel, Winter Cabin, and Crayon Challenge, which did not win ribbons. "Held up well against very strong competition" I think is the comforting description often given. Insert smiley face here.

I love pictures with people admiring quilts!
The week following chairing a quilt show is totally taken up with gathering reports, sorting and organizing files and show supplies. Rahrah is checking to see if there is anything interesting here.
