Mancuso's World Quilt Show - FLORIDA Competition

Wow, what an exciting and event-filled weekend... I can finally stop and breathe.

This past weekend was the Florida Competition of the World Quilt Show by Mancuso Show Management. I must say, Florida certainly has many talented quilters! On my facebook page I have an album of many of the quilts from the show, including several exhibits, and also quilts from the World Quilt Show. If you already use facebook, you can view the album here, otherwise, you'll need to sign up for facebook.

I am thrilled to announce that Oliver took Third Place in this show... woohoo or hoot-hoot!! Wow, I am super proud of myself! Yes, I am tooting my own horn (finally)!! Here he is in all his glory - I waited until he was home for the winner photo -- much better lighting than in the Convention Center.

I had the honor of meeting Mark Sherman, who took Best of Show with his amazing quilt "Tree of Life" - such workmanship and detail, it is beautiful in pictures but awesome in person.

Second Place was "Phantom Phoenix" by Sylvia S. Clary, another amazing quilt. Here's a picture...

What a fantastic show and congratulations to all who entered! See you all again next year!
