Oh What a Night! Houston IQA!! 
I won first place in Large Abstract Art with Little Cities (97" x 96")! I knew I was up for a cash prize, but I was really not expecting first place. And one of the best moments was when another quilter approached me after the awards and asked me if I was the artist? Me?!! Yes, I am an artist! Hard to wrap my head around that, but at least, now I can say it! Thanks to everyone who stopped by to look at my quilt and talk to me!

Kathy, Oh Kathy! It was hard to decide which shone brighter, you or your quilt.
So how long did it take you to make it? (Just kidding!)

I saw your quilt in Houston and it is just wonderful! I have a picture of it as my computer "wallpaper" and I gaze at it and try to figure out how you assembled it! It is really inspiring! Thank you for sharing it.

This is the most beautiful quilt I have ever seen!

I found the link your site in a round about sort of way - but I will definitely be back to see more of your gorgeous quilts!

You have inspired me to go back to my unfinished quilt!

Hey Kathy!
Congratulations (again)! I saw your quilt at the Dallas Quilt show as well and just...wow. Another ribbon for the wonderfully outstanding quilt!

I even got to tell people I KNEW you! Of course it was just from the night we hung quilts together at Austin - but still! Thank you for being an inspiration to me and ... oh yeah! Congratulations for your article in quilting arts! Thank you for sharing how you created the fish...

Annie,
No plans to make a pattern for this yet. I fear it would take as long as it took to make the quilt. ha!
