And the Des Moines Winners Are....

This morning the winners of the AQS Quilt Show and Contest in Des Moines, Iowa, were announced just prior to the opening of the show. AQS President Meredith Schroeder welcomed the quilters to the show, and then introduced Greg Edwards, CEO of the Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau who welcomed the quilters to Des Moines. He told us the CVB ordered this beautiful weather for the show this week.
