A little quilty catch-up...

So, while I was teaching in Lancaster I received a text from my friend Eyvonne.  Our quilt, Outta the Loop, won Best of Show as well as Best Machine Quilting at the Palm Beach County Quilt show. Wow, wasn't that some awesome news!  Here's a peek at the ribbons (it also has the 1st Place ribbon):

And just in case you've never seen Outta the Loop, here's a pick of the front and back:


And, as if new ribbons weren't enough... here's the latest copy of American Quilter magazine with the newest Gammill Quilting ad, featuring, Outta the Loop:

This is Gammill's new A Quilter's Story campaign.  You can read all about my Outta the Loop story here.

Also, some catch-up on Just The Two of Us (the pelican quilt).  You might remember me telling you about it's first show and my questioning my background choice.  Well, it just hung at MQX and the critique was good, it did mention that a higher value contrast could enhance the design.  Now that's a critique... nothing about cutting my background down, nothing about there being too much water - nothing to make me feel my decisions were wrong.  Ahhh, a sigh of relief.  But, back to the good part of this... it turns out, Just the Two of Us was chosen by Janet-Lee for the Founders Award - woohoo.  How awesome is that - totally made my day!

Oh... and one more tidbit for you -- I have finally returned to working on Dance in the Rain -- yes, it has been three years.  More on this soon -- there's a lot going on with it, and yes I'm taking lots of pictures, just not sharing them yet.  Soon, I promise!
