The Best of Show Quilt

Here's the quilt that won Best of Show in today's guild challenge.  It's called "Happiness is Always Having a Spare."  It was made by Ruth Ann Abbs, and I think she said she sewed 640 buttons on this quilt!  Whoa, baby!  That's a lot of buttons!  And her use of color is amazing, isn't it?

Here are some close up shots.

A truly beautiful quilt!

I have lots more photos to share from today's meeting over the course of the week, so stay tuned.  As for my quilt, I came home with two ribbons!  I won second place in my category and best hand work.  Fun morning!
