Space Coast Quilters, the quilt club in Titusville, held their annual quilt show this weekend. Michelle along with several other quilters from our RV park are active in this club. So they were all occupied full time hosting and participating in the show.
There were 230 quilts entered in the show; Michelle entered three. Her quilt Scrappy Split won 3rd place in the 'Medium Size Quilts' division.
Name "Scrappy Split"
Pattern: Split Rail
Here is an interesting quilt made from the container bags for Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey.
Crown Royal, a blended Canadian whisky, is the top-selling Canadian whisky in the United States. The reigning monarch King George VI, and his wife, Queen Elizabeth, visited Canada in 1939. Crown Royal was introduced that year by Samuel Bronfman, President of Seagram as a tribute to the royal visit. It was available only in Canada until 1964.
I wonder who got to drink all that good whiskey? I'm pretty sure it wasn't the quilters ... although I don't know what really happens when those ladies get together in private. Sometimes their corners don't match ... hmmmmm.
Michelle is glad to be back in our winter home and back to her favorite pastime. She is happiest with her quilting buddies. That's a good thing.
