What a Week!

It all started Monday night when I opened this email:

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:

I'm super excited for it to return home as I see there are two ribbons!  I am overjoyed!  Hopefully, this is just the beginning for this awesome quilt!


  1. Wow, it is gorgeous! It certainly deserved to be honored. Congrats. I can't imagine winning at that level. I was happy with 2 blue ribbons and a 3rd at our local show here in SW Florida.

  2. Whoo hoo! That is fantastic news. Congratulations.

  3. Congratulations! This original piece is beautiful,

  4. Congratulation! It is beautiful!
