I haven't had any quilts to post for a long time now - I am still trying to finish up a long term project which I can't show pictures of for a while. But I do have a picture of my friend Sheri to post. Her Storm at Sea quilt that I quilted for her won a third place ribbon at the AQS show in Paducah! I posted about it here. She had all kinds of problems with bleeding when she blocked it so this is definitely a happy ending!
Also exciting: I'm the chair of my guild's Opportunity Quilt committee which I posted about here. I entered it in Paducah and it won a first place ribbon in the Group Quilt category! I'm so proud of it even though the only thing I stitched on it is the label. It was hand appliqued by about 30 members of Prairie Quilt Guild and beautifully longarm quilted by Siriporn Hollar. This should help us sell a few more tickets!
And even more ribbons: my quilts came home from MQX this week and my miniature wholecloth, Itty Bitty Boutis won a second place ribbon in the Small Wholecloth category. Unfortunately (for me!), they eliminated the Miniature category.
Ann's quilt came home with a teachers ribbon from Renae Haddadin - wow! Thanks
