Before I announce the winners I want to give one more shout out to all of the quilters who participated in this year's event!!  The show would not have been such fun nor as great a success if you had not taken part! I really appreciate each and every one of you for sharing your talents with us all!

Thank you to:


We cannot end the show without thanking all of our wonderful sponsors one more time!  Without them there would not have been such a fantastic prize pool nor would there have been door prizes!  If you can find a spare minute or two, please send these sponsors an email letting them know how much you appreciate the way they give back to the quilting community! Thanks so very much!
