Golden Quilter Awards giveaway

Excuse my absence, it seems that the party for the Golden Quilter Awards just didn't want to end.  I finally gave up, but I think there are still some winners and fellow quilters that are still celebrating.  But, I was able to sneak away and want to share a few insights about the party.  While, I've already announced the winners of the 2012 Golden Quilter Awards, I thought you'd be interested in learning what participants received prizes that were donated by our very generous sponsors of this event. 




First, I want to share how much I loved visiting with those that attended the ceremony and party.  It was also a blast to see all the outfits that people wore to the party.  Judy Chain (Sew Fun Quilts) wore some super cute silver rhinestone encrusted tenny shoes!  Shame I forgot my camera.  If you were able to get any pictures, of "One Crazy Quilter" dancing on those tables,  please let me know!
