I had entered four quilts/wall hangings in the show and brought home three ribbons, plus $50 in prize money, plus a free entry into next years show (3rd prize).
Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt for 2014,
Grand Illusion took 1st Place
This table topper/wall hanging was a
challenge from my local quilt guild
this year and took 2nd place
A panel I bought in Idaho one
summer and made into a child's
quilt last year took 3rd place
My favorite was a block challenge
from my Las Vegas Modern
Quilt Guild this year that didn't place. :(
Of course, there were lots of vendors at our show and I did lots of shopping with my winnings plus a lot more $$$ added in.

making stars and a paper piecing kit
Some really beautiful ombre
fabric and a pattern
Fat quarter bundles, half yard
bundles, jelly roll, and a pattern
Other than the quilt show work, I actually accomplished a lot, so here goes.
I have been wanting to join Jen over at Patterns By Jen for her monthly mug rug pattern program (muggamo), but didn't have the time in January (quilt show stuff going on) and didn't think I'd make it for February, but since I finished my one monthly goal on Saturday, I took the time yesterday to make it and had fun doing it. I dug into my stash and found some leftover Bronco fabric from the travel bag I made for a Christmas gift back in 2015. So here it is in all its glory. Be sure to check out Jen's blog for the March mugrug pattern.

Here is a picture of the block(s) that I made for Hive 5's February Stash Bee Queen. She didn't want them joined together as she is going to mix them up with all the blocks she receives.
I completed my One Monthly Goal, but that will be in another post real soon.
And last, but not least, I finished another redwork block. My goal is to get all the blocks finished and made into a Christmas quilt to hang up in our 5th wheel before Christmas. Wish me luck.
Well that's it for now.
