Superior Quilt Show 2013


First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone for their energy, support and commitment to the Thunder Bay Quilters’ Guild Superior Quilts 2013 Show.  It has been most humbling working with so many talented, dedicated and creative individuals.

I would especially like to thank Shirley Aussant.  Without her vision and multiple trips to map, measure, re-measure and re-map the Coliseum building, the show would not have been the breath-taking and professional experience we were able to share.  Shirley, I learned much from you about having grace under pressure, respect and yes, we will need to sit together more often to share a laugh or two!  Thank you with all my heart!

Jennifer Marks (the Quilt Guild would like to thank Jennifer as well for doing such an amazing job-you did our quilts proud!)

Best of Show Award Winners

“One comment that was often heard at the door as visitors left the show was, “I’m going to return my ballot.  I don’t know how to pick the best quilt out of so many amazing quilts.”  So while there were many empty ballots (a true testament to the many talented members of the Thunder Bay Quilters’ Guild), listed below are the results from the voting for “Best of Show” by category.  Congratulations to all!” Jennifer Marks, Quilt Show Chair.
