I am thrilled for several reasons. First, the quilt show is over. I was the Registrar and the Quilt Exhibit Coordinator. So, I was in charge of everything to do with the 643 quilts exhibited. To see all of the quilts, go to:
Thank you to Beth Brandkamp for taking and posting all of the quilt pictures.
I do have to thank my first rate committee for their hard work to make the show go up and come down so smoothly. They are wonderful women to work with.
Second, I received my first ribbon; 3rd place in art quilts from my peers – a committee of fellow quilters in the club. I am very honored. Especially, since it was a quilt that almost did not make the show!!! It was a class project (taught by Judi Warren Blaydon) from last summer at Quilting by the Lake. I finally finished it Sunday before the show. It almost did not make it into the show.
The design is from a set of photos from Morocco printed in black and white, then made into a collage. The top has been done since last July; it was the quilting I was struggling with.
Third, my published patterns have been picked up by two large distributors, Checker and Brewer. This is very exciting. I hope to have three more patterns done by the fall. Will keep you posted!
