2015 Challenge and Quilt Show Winners

Well what a fun lunch that was. 
Lots of lovely food,
Lots of yummy dessert
Gallons of punch.
Gossip galore.....who would have thought that there would be so much to chatter about since last week?
After feeding our faces  dining delicately on the delish chicken and salads, not to mention desert, we moved onto the business end of the day.........

Firstly there was the presentation to Najidah, our charity of choice for this quilt show, of a lovely cheque for $2,000.00 made up of the raffle proceeds, as well as the coin donations from the culled library books.
Got a good grip on that cheque there!,
We were then treated to an update of the vital work these gals do, as well as an amazing story of resilience and determination of one of their recent clients, a Mum who would not have been able to rescue herself and family without the intervention and help of Najidah.
Only time there was no chatter all day.

Then what everyone has been waiting for, finally the announcement of the challenge winners, both viewers choice and judged have to provide your own drum roll here...just pick up a pencil and have at it!!
3rd Prize judged winner is Pat, can that smile get any bigger?

With her Mini Q.A.Y.G Challenge

2nd Prize judged winner is Susan, delightedly glancing at her certificate

Susan's winning challenge, a traditional design with some very nice hand quilting.
