Waco Quilt Show--Part Three

The fourth quilt that I entered in the show was Cotton Candy, which was featured in this blog several weeks ago.  It was entered in the division called "Small pieced, hand or machine quilted."  This turned out to be a small category, with only 15 quilts entered.

My quilt earned no ribbons, but I was pleased by the positive comments made by the judge who judged it.  She praised my idea of hand-quilting the border and machine quilting the center, and she also liked how straight the quilt hung--saying that was a sign of an even distribution of quilting and of careful construction.

Below are the quilts, though, that my colleagues entered in that division which did earn awards.  And just for fun, I'll put in a few more quilts which won awards, ones which particularly impressed me.  More than these few impressed me, actually, but I don't want to burden my post with TOO many photos!

This Feathered Star quilt won 2nd place.

And this quilt, Giraffes for "Casa-G-Raf"--which name I get only partially.
won the blue ribbon.
