Best In Show

Thank you to all who sent such nice messages welcoming me to the Stash Quilts Webring. I am pleased to be joining you.

Carolyn mentioned that she really liked the Rail Fence Around the World quilt. Since I am working on a project right now for a customer, I have no current work of my own to show you. However, Carolyn's comment reminded me of the quilt that I made in 2003 that actually led to the making of the Rail Fence Around the World quilt.

This is Scrap Rail Fence. This quilt took Best In Show at our local Fall Fair in 2003. I was very pleased that year to enter 7 quilts in the fair and take home 7 firsts, including Best in Show.

This quilt was quilted quite simply on my Bernina- in the ditch around the perimeter of each block. This quilt pre-dated the purchase of my long arm so there was no fancy quilting on this one--just stitch it together enough to keep it functional.


  1. what a great use of excited you must have been to win first place for every quilt you entered that year! wow!

  2. Wow, now that is what I would call a Stash Buster! Oh wait, I think I see some fabric that I have in MY stash!!! How exciting for you to win, win, win 7X over - you must have been dancing!



  3. Both quilts are wonderful! I guess you are "working in series" if the leftover bits worked their way into another whole quilt, VBG

  4. It's a great scrap quilt Norma, and congratulations on joining the Stash quilters..really great gals!

    That's quite an accomplishment to enter 7 quilts and take home 7 first places..AND Best in Show!
    I look forward to seeing more of your quilts..*VBS*

  5. Wow, that's a lot of firsts! And Best In Show? Congrats!!
