Local Quilter Earns FOUR Ribbons with Three Quilts

 At the Omaha Quilt Guild Show, Sandi Petsche, Harlan, submitted three quilts for judging and earned four ribbons.  Sandi's work is always impressive, and if you ever have the opportunity to see her quilts, you will understand why she wins.  Last year, Sandi's quilt wone BEST OF SHOW at the Omaha Quilt Guild Show.

 This year Sandi won a blue ribbon for her "Birds of a Feather" in Category 12 Wallhanging, Kit or BOM, Machine or Hand Quilted.  Her award was sponsored by Seams to Be Quilt Shoppe.

By the way, I talked to Terri from Seams to Be.  The flooding hasn't impacted her shop -- so you can still plan the day trip to Plattsmouth, Nebraska.
 Check out this closeup of "Wacky Bird."
Sandi took second place with her "Wacky Bird" in Category 16 Miniature.
And here's the quilt that won TWO ribbons.  Sandi's "Raggedy Ann & Raggedy Andy" took second place in Category 13 Art/Innovative quilts.  Sandi appliqued and embellished the tiniest details on each block.  Her work was recognized by quilt show attendees -- they voted Raggedy Ann & Raggedy Andy the Viewer's Choice!

Congratulations Sandi!
Here's a closeup of Raggedy Ann & Raggedy Andy.
And what was Sandi's pick in the show?  She wasn't sure which quilt was her favorite, but when Sandi spotted Lollipop Trees in a vendor booth, she knew she HAD to have the pattern!

I'm sorry I can't remember which booth this was in, but I'll ask Sandi and update the blog for those of you who would like more information about this block-of-the-month and pattern.
