Actually, we have several winners, but the big news is...
Drum roll please...
WannaBee at the Ocean won 2 blue ribbons! One for Best Group Quilt and one for Best Original Design. It was very exciting!
Ben won several additional ribbons. He took second place in the Small Applique category and first in the Mixed Technique category.

Caroline is clearly a winner since the two group quilts in which she participated won first and second place in that category:

Lene won two blue ribbons for Best Small Pieced Quilt and Best Small Applique Quilt. She was being shy and had to be practically dragged into the picture.
But the best part of the evening was that Jackie was able to "bee" with us for the ribbon ceremony and a group photo. It was awesome to have all eight of us together to celebrate.
Congratulations to my fellow WannaBees and all of the winners! Voting was tough with so much quilty goodness to choose from.
Tomorrow: I'll show you the quilts I entered...and explain why they didn't win!
