I made this two-inch tray of miniature dark and white chocolates that are in Diane Boden Crane's book titled Miniature Quilling, with a few variations of my own :o)

This quilled floral arrangement, created by Elaine Altmose, won 1st Place in the Free Standing category and was also voted Peoples' Choice. Yes, the vase is all quilled and the mums are quilled petals not punched leaves.
During the awards dinner, Elaine gave her winning piece to Motoko Nakatani (Maggie) from Japan, since Maggie gave Elaine her quilled Accreditation piece last year. Maggie and two other members from Japan attended and there were two gentlemen in my class. Members from Canada and as far away as San Diego and south Florida attended.
Elaine Altmose with her 1st Place blue ribbon and Peoples' Choice rosette ribbon and Maggie with the quilled floral arrangement, which really shows how large it is.
This is how many items were donated for the raffle drawings. The prizes were wonderful!
When photos are released, I will post more photos and pieces that were submitted in the competition.
