Quilt Odyssey 2008

What a fantastic trip we had to the Quilt Odyssey quilt show! The quilts were all amazing...each and every one of them! There was a wonderful display of antique red and green quilts, a retrospective of Karen Kay Buckley's quilts that have been on the covers of magazines over the years, an interesting challenge category that asked entrants to create a new quilt from a vintage quilt block, and then of course there were the judged quilts. The one shown in the photo, Nebraska's Rising Sun, by Sandi McMillan and Laura Franchini, was awarded the best of show. It is a truly magnificent quilt, but so were all of the others! I sure wouldn't have wanted the job of awarding the ribbons...there's no way I could ever pick a favorite!
