The monochromatic challenge came in last night!  It was great!!!  I think I have gotten a picture up of every quilt.... But I don't have who made each one.  So eye candy time!  30 quilts come in.  7 were hand quilted.  There was a first, second and third place and 8 were picked to go as a group to AQS, and 2 alternates. 

They were running out of space to hang them up!  The designs were all so different!

Just great to see!

The yellow one got viewers choice.  YEA!

this is Gloria's.  I love Hawaiian work!  She did a great job.

Orange was a tough color to work with.  She did a great job too.

Jane Dunham!  Wow.

Lucy Bobb's.  This was so striking!!!  Not just because it is blue, but the design is wonderful!  This was 2nd place!

Under the sea!  I think it was Dorleen's.  Great picture!!!!  She got 3rd place.

Very cool design! 

This picture doesn't do it justice!

Pat Blankenship got first place!  Hand quilted!!  And blue... Mmmm?  All the winners were blue... love it!

Tone Haugen-Cogburn's was a picture of big anchor chains.  Very cool.

Arleen Murphy's!


Nellie's water!  Looks good in pink.

Wonderful Irish Chain!!

Purple Basset!!!  Isn't he cute!?

Sandy Kambic's!

Louise's.  Super.  Amazing...

Another great blue!

Pretty in Pink!

Mask of Mars...

Kathy Costello's, I love the colors!  Great dimention in this.

Love all the bead work on this one.  I think my camera made the color look alittle lighter.  It was cool.

This one was lighter in person.  Lots of work in this.

A purple strippy quilt!  Love the colors!  Very soothing.

Mine.... Too much?

Dianne Rhea's.  4 Animals are in the leaves.

Lots of curvy lines! 

Another pink!  Great piecing.

This yellow one was by Jan Darnell.  She organized this challenge.  So the vote was counted by a couple of other people also... It was great!

And another pretty blue traditional piece.
The numbers for the ones picked for the group entry are 2, 4, 14, 16, 18, 19, 20, and 21.  The alternates are 17 and 26.  So you can see the numbers on the quilts....  
Obviously, I don't have all the names of each maker.  They didn't have everyone stand with their quilt.  At meetings, things seem to go too fast.  Hold up a quilt and tell the story and then it's gone.  I think they need to slow down and enjoy more.
Normal is just a setting on the dryer. 
Not life. 


  1. Since I wasn't able to attend the meeting I'm really glad you posted the quilts. Lots of good ones!

  2. Thanks, Patty. Wish I had taken a camera. Who knew this challenge would be soooo very successful. Congrats on being one chosen for the AQS Guild Challenge. Love the garden mitts incorporated into yours.
