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.....
