In the spring, I joined the Durham Orange Quilters (DOQ) guild. The group held their bi-annual quilt show this past weekend in the old tobacco district of Durham NC. The setting was fantastic; the old brick tobacco buildings have been incorporated into a convention center, athletic park and restaurant area. Bay 7, where our quilts were displayed, is airy and open and sunny. Unfortunately, the sunniness at times made it hard to get good pictures ... but that's a small price to pay!
I entered 2 quilts -- my log cabin sampler, in the bed, pieced category, and a wall hanging called POP - Pinwheels on Point. Unbelievably, both got 1st place ribbons in their categories. I'm still in shock. Not bad for a newbie, eh? Here are some pictures -- first, a picture of bay 7, and then my 2 quilts. (Again, sorry for the sunshine on the POP photo).
