Awards! Rewards!

So, you've finished the challenges and now comes the ribbons, rewards, awards.
I like seeing how individual guilds celebrate their accolades
for job well done!  Here is one way to make an award-- 

First place ribbon is always blue--why?

The blue ribbon is a symbol of high quality. The association comes from The Blue Riband, a prize awarded for the fastest crossing of the Atlantic Ocean by passenger liners and, prior to that from Cordon Bleu, which referred to the blue ribbon worn by a particular order of knights. The spelling blue riband is still encountered in most English-speaking countries, but in the United States, the term was altered to blue ribbon, and ribbons of this color came to be awarded for first place in certain athletic or other competitive endeavours (such as county and state fairs). It also may be applied to distinguished members of a group or commission who have convened to address a situation or problem; the usual usage is "blue ribbon commission" or "blue-ribbon panel".

Second place winner receives a colorful red ribbon

Each challenge had a different hand made ribbon

And the first place and best of show receives
two ribbons!!

Here is the first/best of show winner!
Alice Sadeghpour
"Dear William With a Twist"
quilted by Mary Jo Yackley

Class taught by Phyllis Rucker:  machine applique turned into
a needle turn applique with a softer border
It was truly a lovely piece of work and deserved
the ribbons it won!

I liked this simple but effective way of placing an

and then you have the 'plain old' purchased ribbon--
quite frankly, I'll take any ribbon any which way
I can earn it!
I really don't think a quilter would like a huge
trophy like this!  how could we display it??
