So, I've been holding back on you. I'm pleased to report that my entry for this year's Canadian Quilters Association National Juried Show received a Judge's Choice Award.
I finished the quilt in time for the February deadline, bit my nails hoping to get in, and got word of my acceptance the following month. I shipped it out to St. Johns, Newfoundland for the show, and a couple days after the show opened, received an e-mail from the president of the CQA about the Judge's Choice Award.
I was giddy for days.
The quilt is called "Downriver Industrial," measures about 31" x 66", and is fused, painted, machine-pieced and machine-quilted.
Check out the saucer-sized ribbon! And No, I didn't wear it out in public. :-)
