West Houston Quilt Exhibit

Over the weekend, I attended the West Houston Quilt Exhibit, held at the Berry
Center in Cypress, Texas--
this local guild brings excitement to the community with their biennial
exhibit.  I always like to see what challenges that have been issued
to the members.

Love this challenge!  Candy!  What candy bar would you use to make
a quilt?  This one is PayDay--Made and quilted by Gloria Ware!
Such fun!  Pattern was from Owl Be Home by Christmas by Cherry Guidry
Celeste Fritz "Love Dark Chocolate!" 
Star Light, Star Bright from book
Hershey's Yes!!

Phyllis Rucker loves Mounds bars,
she chose "Mounds Moroccan Tiles"

Oh, can you guess what candy bar?

the category 

I know what this one represents!

won an award

Hersey's at it again!  This one by Annie Forrest

A collaboration between Pamela Hensley and Georgia
Johnson brings us Heath Bar--the note said:
the pattern was chosen because the ruler was on sale--
