I'm having issues with blogger on this post, so things are running together....Last weekend was our annual Girls Getaway to the Gorge. It was 4 days all about friendship, quilting, food and wine. We spent 3 nights at the Gorge in OR, and during the days we enjoyed the Columbia River Quilt Show at Stevenson Fair grounds. I taught an applique class and Muriel taught a table runner class. Paula and Norma took classes and volunteered at the show. As usual, you can click on the photos for more details. It was a fabulous group of quilts that hung in this judged show, I tried to get all the ribbon winners, sorry if I missed some!

Mary Arnold of Vancouver, WA Best of Show.....no kidding!
All hand quilted. This has been a work in progress for many years, and I'm glad the quilter showed this piece. I spent some time enjoying this piece. Excellent choices of quilting motifs.
I loved this one too. The quilting design was excellent for the piecing. Very well done.
