Our local Mavens did well! Though quilts weren't officially and technically judged, they were voted on by guild members, and Rita, Kathy, and Alice all won various types of ribbons for some of their entries.
In addition, I used MM quilts of the five of us for a special exhibit. I "worked the show" this morning and so was around our exhibit a lot, and it engendered a good bit of interest. It was fun to discuss the quilts with those who came by.
Here are so photos from the show, which continues tomorrow:

|Alice's Posies and Paisleys quilt made of chiefly Kaffe Fassett|
fabrics, based on one of his designs, won no ribbons
but Alice was glad to see it hanging nice and straight
and she was able for the first time to photograph
the entire quilt.
