All Dolled up quilts and a blogger/shop owner give-away

We mentioned 'All Dolled up last" month but we wanted to show off the All Dolled Up quilts one more time.  They were so fantastic we really hated to part with them. Amanda Herring of the quilted fish put together a fun event for quilt market  Riley Blake Designs and 28 local designers helped sponsor the event which allowed hundreds of quilt market attendees to participate.  These were the grand prize quilts.
