Vintage Blooms Has a New Home

Well, my "baby" has a new home.  This is our opportunity quilt that was raffled off at our Quilt Show.  Yesterday at 4 PM, out of over 6,000 tickets, we picked one lucky winner.  She lives about an hour from Pensacola and had been at the show Saturday morning.  What a lucky girl!
After we had taken the quilt down and were closing things out, I realized that in three days, I had not had a single picture taken in front of the quilt. Grrrrrr.  But a friend overheard me and sent me this picture today.
I have a vague recollection of someone taking it.  But these are some of my sweet co-workers.  In fact, the woman in the blue striped shirt is the one who machine quilted Vintage Blooms.  She did such an amazing job.  I hope the new owner will love this special quilt as much as I have.  
More to come soon, I'm still trying to re-enter real life LOL!!

Congratulations on the blue ribbon! I'm betting you're glad the show is over but still basking in the beauty of all the quilts. Now try to rest up!

What a stunning quilt! You are one talented quilter. How do you let go of such a gorgeous quilt?

Congratulations on the blue ribbon for Jubilee, also. Again, wonderful talent!

Lucky winner indeed. Your quilt is a treasure, Karen. You should be very proud of it, plus the impressive number of tickets sold. Question--do you have any leftover patterns for Vintage Blooms? I'm interested in purchasing one.

I was wondering the same thing as Vivian. I wanted so much to be back to the area for the quilt show but hubby's work had a change on plans. 😡
