Today is a good day. I came home to find a letter telling me that my whole cloth has been accepted into the Northwest Quilting Expo. Then I walked down to the Lane County Fair, only about six blocks from my house, to scope out the quilts. Half way through the exhibit, I happened upon a customer quilt with a blue ribbon on it. I was thrilled for my customer and proud that I had a hand in the quilt, but the ribbon was for piecing. In fact, it is the red and white Tennessee Waltz pictured above. As I moved through the exhibit, I wondered what in the heck had happened to my quilt, as I didn’t see it hanging anywhere. It turned out that the pro class quilts were not hung, but arranged on a table (under netting) so that people could look at them close up and not touch. There was mine with a blue ribbon on it!! I am so happy. Okay, it’s only the county fair and I think there were only four or five quilts in the pro class, but I got the blue. My first BLUE!! For those of you who haven’t seen the quilt, here she is.
