AQS Albuquerque

Thanks to my many friends out there in blogland and facebook-land, I have received a few pics of my quilt that was at the AQS show last week.  This is "From the Bride's Trousseau"'s first show, and I am delighted to see it sporting a big blue ribbon.  One of my facebook friends has a particularly keen ability with a camera.  She posted great close-up pics of many of the quilts, and the next 3 were her's.
There's no having bad stitches when you are being examined this closely!  I am happy to see that the colored thread does show.  I need, however, to check the blocking when it gets back home, as it hangs with definite folds.  Being in a box since early December doesnt help that.
 
 This is my favorite clamshell fill...
 Enjoy!

I love how the colored threads give a subtle depth to this wholecloth. Very beautiful. It's great to get a ribbon on its debut.
