My original intent......

I planned on posting tonight about all the lovely quilts that I saw today at my guild's quilt show.....
Quilts From the Attic, and I will but first I have to share this. 

I put one quilt in the Beyond the Cherry Trees. 

This was a Viewer's Choice only show for all categories. 

I took Best Applique


I, also, took Best of Show!!!!

I am so excited and so thankful!  I am still pinching myself.

Ok....there were plenty of other lovely quilts in the show, so I will show you the ones that were favorites of mine, but my pictures just don't do them justice.

You can see I love black quilts with bright colors.  

Always love Christmas. 

Loved the dimension on this one.  

This New York Beauty was one of my favorites.  

Always love quilts with French General fabric.  

Loved the quilting on this Geisha. 

Loved the leafy quilting on the two previous quilts.  Funny how when you become a longarmer you tend to look at the quilting and forget to look at the quilt.  

This was a paper pieced log cabin!

I have always loved owls.

The quilting on this bargelo intrigued me.  

Lots of beautiful New York Beauties.  

The next two are my friend, Sharon's,  Bonnie Hunter quilts.  I still can't imagine doing all those little pieces, but they sure turn out beautiful! 

There were plenty more quilts and lots of vendors to keep you oohing and ah-ing the whole time you were there.  

Sure hope I will be able to sleep tonight being on Cloud Nine and all.  :D
