Reserve Grand Champion - Heritage Arts

The Weld CO fair just happened here.... and Little Bit Entered his Elvis Quilt in the Heritage Arts division.  He won Champion in his Quilting class......

and the it went up against all the other Champions in the Heritage Arts Division -   ( including knitting and other cool things)  and he came out with Reserve Grand Champ!  Not to bad.

I should have taken a photo of the Grand Champion - she had a knitted vest that was spectacular!!!




This is his quilt unbound ... and he bound it in that blue. I am proud to say, he did not need any help on the binding this year - I was impressed - either that - or he wanted me out of the room!!  



Posing ;-)

And this is the quilt I entered
I took Third in my category




This is the one that took first in my category 
Wow!! I want to take that one home



Do you think she would notice if I just switched them out???

Congrats all around! You never know what appeals to the judges. BUT, you have an amazing Modern Quilting movement in your neighborhood. I do have to chuckle -- just think, Elvis is retro!
