A Ribbon Winner!

CONGRATULATIONS to Elizabeth Phillippi for earning a ribbon at this weekend's Cabarrus quilt show.  Elizabeth's quilt won Honorable Mention in the Large Wall Quilt - Longarm/Midarm Machine Quilted category.  This was her very first entry into a quilt show. Way to go!!!

Her quilt was a beautiful scrappy storm at sea quilt that some of you got to see in person at one of our recent Sew & Tells.  Fellow modern guild member, Jenn Reeves  (Honu Quilting website), did the gorgeous machine quilting for the quilt.  What a great team.

The show runs through tomorrow (10/6) at the Cabarrus Arena in Concord, NC.  Hours on Saturday are 10-5.  And don't forget the Barnful of Quilts on Saturday...
Barnful of Quilts
Saturday 10/6 is the 10th annual Barnful of Quilts in Waxhaw. It will be held from 10-5 at the Fox Family Farm at 7505 Sims Road (704-516-8060). The Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild will have an information booth at the show and several of our members have quilts that will be in the show. The proceeds benefit Samaritan's Purse.

Lots of quilty goodness this weekend.
