The man who won the Half Marathon wasn't going to run, but his wife talked him into it. He was quick and beat her back, so he went to the car and got out a quilt, spread it out in the sun and took a nap while he waited. The quilt police were there and quickly commented on how you should never put a quilt on the ground and he obviously had no idea how much work went into making one. I quickly told her I intended mine to be used in just such a manner. I got a disbelieving look, but that is ok. He was tickled with his quilt and quickly told his wife thanks for talking him into it. He folded it nicely and placed it on the side of the one he was laying on. Hope he gets a lot of use out of it.

Now to grill burgers for DGSs birthday party tonight, then hopefully early to bed.

They turned out beautiful. I like the way you ended up doing the trees and I love the turtles. How special for the winners! I think I would tempted to take up running if I could win one of those.......or maybe not. LOL

Looks like a beautiful day for a race and a beautiful day to Win a Quilt! Congrats to the winners!
You and Tim really showcased this event in a wonderful way.
The quilts are a Forever Prize! They look great hanging and I am sure inspired a few runners to run faster!
This makes it all worth it!
Kudos!

I'm so happy I could contribute some half-square triangles to the effort. I love the tree lay-out, as it really lets the individual blocks shine.

They are all wonderful, and the turtle is awesome!

Thanks so much for your help everyone. The lady from the Forest Service was there and said they would love to have a small one with the pine tree and turtle to hang in the office. Guess that will be next on my hit list.
