Exciting News!

I still cannot believe I am writing this.


I have been staring at my inbox for an hour with mixed emotions. The common thread of these thoughts is a combinations of happy and incredulous.

Sherbert at the Beach, my Michael Miller Cotton Couture Challenge Quilt, won 1st place in the Modern Wall-hanging Category.

I had intended to use this quilt as a beach quilt this summer. My grandma would probably throw something somewhat soft at me if I tried ( Have you ever been hit with a pair of rolled up socks? Yowch!)

I am so happy and speechless and excited. Thank you very much to the AQS judges!

You can see the best in show entries and all the winners here. The Best in Show is a stunner!

Happy Stitching!
