Remember this quilt I worked on last fall that ribboned at the 2015 Tuscon Quilt Fiesta guild show? Well it won FIRST place in the Quilts Among Friends category at MQX East!!!
|"Better Than Prozac" by Barbara Moran (quilted by me!)|
|Woohoo way to go Barbara! That's a mighty fine BLUE ribbon!|
I am OVER THE MOON to say the least. The very best part for this long arm quilter? MQX is one of the few shows that also awards a ribbon to the quilter as well as the piecer! I only saw one hanging on the quilt at the show and often times you'll see both hanging right on the quilt...so I double checked with Janet-Lee and she confirmed that I indeed will get a ribbon. I can't tell you what a big deal that is to me! It is just so rare to get any recognition as the quilter at all outside of a mention in passing on the description card...and I passionately believe it should be the standard at all shows. I do a lot of quilting on quilts intended for show, and knowing just how HARD you work as the quilter to likely never see it again...that ribbon is a really stinking big deal to me!
I just finished up an intense custom that if I can I will try and share a few sneaks of. It's kind of a hush hush quilt so I cannot share full photos. I'm also finishing up a baby quilt today and have two more really amazing quilts lined up that I'm anxious to share.
WHEEW! What a busy week! I'm thrilled to share this exciting news and hope all of you out in blog land are doing well! It's starting to feel like SPRING! :)
