OMG! Totally awesome, right? I was so excited. I had entered two quilts, my newest one, The Thing with Feathers, as well as The Choice. I was secretly hoping the award was for The Thing with Feathers -- that has become my new favorite. It just has so much meaning to me (read about that here). I really wished I was able to attend MQS but unfortunately, no... insert pouty face here.
So I waited... and waited... Then Tuesday came and went, and I waited some more. Then Wednesday - finally! The awards ceremony was at 8pm (9pm my time). I had a few friends there and I was sure one of them would post something... they did! And multiple texts as well -- apparently, I even got a special shout out -- totally wish I was there! The Thing with Feathers had won 2nd Place in the Theme category -- pure awesomeness, I was floating around the house -- I was (and still am) delighted! Here is the official Winners List - congratulations to all!
Here is a photo that one of my facebook friends sent to me:
