I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

Shams: WOW!

Good Afternoon Gentle Blog Readers,

Today at our monthly quilt guild meeting, we had a sham challenge.  Members were urged to make a pillow sham (design of their choosing) and bring it in this month for display.  It cost $5 to register for the challenge, everyone at the meeting today got to vote for their favorite, and the top three winners got cash and a ribbon.

Without further ado, here are some of the entries:

The numbers on the shams were the ID numbers, not necessarily how they finished.

Hand embroidery on this one!

This one had felt checker pieces and a pocket on the back of the sham to store the pieces when not in use!

And now for the winners:

Third Prize

Second Prize

First Prize

I think that everyone who entered was a winner.  No, I did not enter this year--maybe next year.

That's it for today.  As always, thanks for visiting with me.
