At the Florida State Fair, Nan Ryan's quilt won the first place ribbon in the Group category. This is the 6-minute circle technique taught by Tommy F at our Retreat a couple years ago. Congrats Nan!

At the Gathering of Quilts show in Punta Gorda, Jamie Scully won the first place ribbon for

Congrats Jamie!
