Getting Ready for Quilt show

Well I've been getting my quilts ready for our local quilt show. This will be my first one to enter, scared to death. LOL. Right now I'm putting prairie points on my block quilt that is done in spinning star with batiks & black, plus crystals. Boy am I going out of my box!! I'm a primitive folkart type of gal!!
I posted a small picture of it. Love the quilting in it. I've got two wallhangings, another quilt done up in turtles, and one done up in hearts & stars that has button hole stitched them down all by hand. Hope to have a couple of minitures done as well. There is a contest to see who can enter the most. I don't think I'll win but I'm going to try.
The prairie points are going to be a challenge, never done one before so this is all new to me. pressing all of those points I have a feeling is going to take hours. I have 2 weeks till show time. Hope to get them done & ready to go.
I've posted another picture of a mystery quilt I did this past weekend. It was lots of fun. Done in Kansas trouble fabric, which is my one of my loves. Turned out to be kinda americana but didn't mean for it to. Isn't it funny how a quilt takes a mind of it's own. Love to know what you think.
God Bless~~~~
