I'm home from the 9th Annual Heart of Texas Quilt Show and I'm exhausted, to say the least.  Here are some of the pictures and results.
My highest honor:  The Brownwood Mayor Steven Haynes chose my Texas Friendships Quilt as Mayor's Choice.  It also won 2nd place in the "Large Quilts Pieced and Machine Quilted" category.  I designed this quilt for the 2012 Quilt Across Texas Shop Hop for a shop sample for Front Porch Quilts in Benjamin TX.

This isn't my quilt but it is one of my best friend's quilt and I quilted it.  Donna Swanger's Amish With A Twist quilt won 1st place in the "Large Quilts Machine Pieced and Quilted" category.

This is a quilt top dad bought at a flea market in El Dorado Springs MO for $15.  He brought to me and I took it the ladies at Denton United Methodist Church to have it hand quilted.  Dad called this the Quarter Quilt because he said that is what grandma Cotton called them.  He said she said the pieces were the size of a quarter, and they really are.  The correct pattern name is "Field of Diamonds".  It won 3rd place in the Large Quilts Hand quilted category.
  I named this quilt the Cotton Eyed Joe from the verse in the center of the quilt.  When I made this quilt, I actually made 3 at one time; one for me, one for a donation quilt for the FFA Valentine Auction, and one for a friend.  This one won 3rd place in the appliqued quilt, machine quilted category.

  I finished this quilt on Wednesday evening, very late but just in time to enter it in the show on Thursday afternoon.  I embroidered the center blocks in 2011 and finally put it together in 2012.  It won 2nd place in the Holiday Quilts category.

 And my final quilt for the evening is the antique quilt I purchased at a flea market in Lamar MO.  My quilt wasn't the bargain dad got on the Quarter Quilt but still not a bad buy.  The pattern is called Orange Peel and it won 2nd Place in the Antique Quilts category.
I still have more quilt show pictures to post and I have the bed turning quilts to post.
