Festival of Quilts

Today was the Festival of Quilts in Vincennes, Indiana - and I had one of my quilts in the show!

This was the first year that I had one of my quilts shown at this show. Last year, I had entered the "Old Tippecanoe Block Challenge" that the Festival of Quilts held to commemorate President Harrison (who is from Indiana). To my surprise, I had won!!

I had won first place in the Applique category and second in the Pieced category. While at the show this year, I went to see these blocks at the Grouseland Mansion (former home of Van Buren), which was next door.

It was nice to see them on display.

I just had to "toot" my own horn!
