Houston Awards and Modern Patchwork

Sadly, I had to cancel my trip to Houston this year.  It was unavoidable and especially disappointing to miss the awards ceremony.  Thanks to Victoria Findlay Wolfe, I was able to find out about my awards in nearly real time.  She posted photos of the ceremony on FB within minutes of their announcement...which is how I found out that my quilt You Are What You Eat, won an Honorable Mention, and my quilt, Windows, won a 2nd place!!  Outstanding!!


Throughout the week I watched my friends attend the show through the miracle of Facebook.  Here are some of my friends that I will definitely count on seeing next year if not sooner!  And there are so many others I missed.  Poohy!
Jamie Fingal, Sherri McCauley, Irs Karp, Leslie Jenison, and Sheila Frampton-Cooper
Meanwhile, back at home, a surprise came in the mail!  Three copies of Modern Patchwork!  I have a small quilt (Fresh Plus) published with instructions on how to make it.  Isn't the cover gorgeous?!!  You can purchase an issue here, directly from Interweave, or you can leave a comment (literally about anything!).   I will pick two people to receive a copy from me!  I will announce the winners on Friday, so stop back by!

Hope those bright colors with ribbons hanging by them help to bring you as much cheer as they do me on this grey morning. Sorry you had to miss the show, but SO glad you share your quilting with the world!

I'm so sorry you couldn't go to TX this year to celebrate your winnings! I've enjoyed watching fb too. I'm new to quilting, so it's very fun to get to know gals here. Thanks for your continued inspiration!
