Best of the Valley Quilt Show submissions

OK.  I am 100% crazy.  I don't make specific quilts to enter in Best of the Valley Quilt Show,  ( ) but last night I stayed up all night to finish a quilt I decided I really wanted to submit. 

I finished sewing the binding at 4 am, but then had to wash the quilt in cold water to take out the markings.  I laid it out to take needed photos.  I made the postmark deadline. Now to see if after my sacrifice the quilt is accepted.

 I did sleep from 6 - 11 am.  I'm not sure I'll make it to the end of Olympic coverage tonight.

Tile Quilt. Started at a workshop with Bobbi Finley.
The close up photo does not show the quilting well.
I'll try another shot later.
This is the quilt I started at a machine quilting workshop with Jill Schumacher.
I know these shots showing the entire quilt are not good, but I had to show
the entire outside edge for the show application.

Jill's workshop really pushed my skills - just what I wanted it to do.

Thanks for checking in.
