Manitoba Homecoming 2010 Quilt Competition

A WINNER!!!
With permission, I can now show you this wonderful quilt!!!
This photo has been patiently waiting in my Kodak program
for its debut since mid-October... 8-)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My friend Pg (here - Manitoba) and her SIL C (British Columbia), are thrilled that their quilt was chosen as the winner of the Manitoba Homecoming 2010 Quilt Competition. The quilt now goes onto the Olympics and will be displayed at Manitoba House. How exciting is that!?!
Way to go P and C!!! Awesome and creative work indeed! 8-)

This is a combination of the farms P and C were raised on.
The barn is from P's family farm, and the house is from C's. They included other aspects of all farms, wheat fields, pastures, a slough, old rusted out vehicle, animals, etc.
P and C worked on this project together last summer (2009) when P was in B.C. for an extended visit... They spent many hours/days diligently working on it as P's time was limited. (one can only be away from home for so long you know...)
They had to "get'er done!" as P always says...
8-)

The size of the quilt is 74x94 inches.
There were about 20 quilts in the competition.
(correct me if I am wrong P)

The judging was done on Dec.3rd

Do click on the photo for a closer look...

All the quilts were lovely but the judges were correct - this is truly a knock out of imagination, techniques and skill - obviously made by kindred spirits - Congratulations P & C!!! - Y
