Hello Pieceful Quilters,
I have had a request to publish the winners and other pictures from our 5th Anniversary Quilt Show on our blog, since not all of you do Facebook.  I know - some people are afraid of doing Facebook, my husband for one. 
Anyway, I am going to try to copy and paste the pictures and descriptions from Facebook.  Hope this works!
