Market Day ~ Airing of the Quilts ~ Part Five

Part Five signals the end of the Airing of the Quilts from my Market Day Pocket Patchwork sew-along.    I hope you have enjoyed seeing the creative work of so many talented quilters from around the world as much as I have.  

And so, we continue without further ado.....

My sincere thanks to all of the quilters who were sewing along with me....I'm always so jazzed about it!  What fun.  

If you were unable to join the fun this time, I sure hope we've enticed you to participate in future sew-alongs....and yes...there will be future sew-alongs, but not until next year.  The holidays are coming soon, and we'll soon be busy preparing for them, and enjoying time with our family and friends.  

Not to worry, though...I'll soon be enticing you with new quilt projects that have been in the works here!  

Thanks for visiting my blog, and enjoy your day!!

Market Day ~ Airing of the Quilts ~ Part Three

Debbie McClarence with her First Place winning Prairie Gathering quilt.
Before I begin sharing more photos of your Market Day quilts, please allow me to share a bit of good news about my friend, Deb (who works with me).  Deb not only helped me piece my Prairie Gathering quilt, she then made a second one that she will eventually get to keep.  Both of our Prairie Gathering quilts will go "on tour" all over the world in the next year.  Before Deb's quilt leaves on the tour, she was able to enter it into our local quilt guild's (Heritage Quilter's Guild) show this past weekend, and it won First Place!!  


Debbie McClarence's Pins & Needles First Place winner!
 A Prairie Gathering wasn't the only winning quilt for Deb.  She also entered her Pins & Needles quilt (which is a free quilt pattern I designed for the Marcus Fabrics website) the uses both my Pin Money and Prairie Wovens fabric collections.  
She took First Place with that quilt, too!!!  Deb actually won a total of three First Place ribbons.  The third quilt was my Nabby's Dowry Pocket Patchwork Sew-Along quilt (not pictured).  Congratulations, Deb!!  Your quilts are wonderful.  

That just goes to show you, if Deb can make TWO Prairie Gathering quilts, you can easily make just one!!

Thank you for allowing me to gush a bit about Deb's accomplishments.  And now......on with a bit of gushing over Market Day quilts!  Enjoy this next batch of lovelies.....
