East Cobb Show

 The preview night for the East Cobb Quilt Show was last Thursday night.  I was so excited, since it was my first quilt show and preview night.  My friend Pat, was my date for the evening, (Becky got sick on me, hope you are feeling better).  Before we could go into the show and look at the quilts there was an award ceremony, I felt like I was at the Oscar's!!  I knew that I wouldn't win anything  but it was great hearing everyone's names called out.  There was a winner from the Silver Thimble Group, congratulations Linda and Leisa!!!  Way to go.  The Best of Show is the applique quilt to the right, I could never, never do anything like that, it was amazing.  There were over 300 beautiful quilts, I tried to get photos of them all, here are some of my favorites.  Melinda Fulkerson, and the East Cobb group did a great job with the show. 
The insanity quilt, yes, those squares are that tiny.

Civil War quilt from Homestead hearth.  Maybe this will motivate me to finish mine.

This was made by Amanda, a Little Quilts employee.  Great Job Amanda!

I loved this quilt, the colors were so different.

Here I am with my quilt!!
