WOWZER!!!




OH MY GOODNESS.... I can NOT believe it... I'm still shaking..... "Double Edged Love" won BEST IN SHOW!
I only have a second... But this is my quilt at QUILTCON... I made the quilt, and collaborated with LISA SIPES, she quilted it... And it won!!

Even Better, Jay MacCarroll gave me the fabrics the end of the summer and said, 
"Think you can do something with these?"


I'm shocked, shaky, teary and oh so happy... SQUEAL!!!

  67. CONGRATS
    welcome to Austin,TX
    sorry I cant get there to the show, not a word was in any local newspaper about it, the website says 10.00 admission-there is no parking and an RV show going on near you. I am so sad I didnt get to meet you or anyone else. My friend says since I didnt get a pre ticket they were 15.00 each-cant afford that! and buy fabric-lol

  71. Congratulations! so sorry I missed Quilt Con as I was planning to go, but just did not happen. I was just looking over the list of winners on the Modern Quilt Blog and when I saw you won Best of Show I had to pop over to the blog as I knew a picture would be posted. Awesomeness! And so funny...I have a pile of odd triangles left over from a Karen Stone quilt and would not get rid of them because I knew an idea would come some day......guess what I will be sewing on tonight???and the fun will be looking for the spacer strips for between the triangles......oh what fun! (loved meeting you in Houston that first night with Lynn Roddy Brown and getting a book and your autograph--one of my favorite memories from Houston!)
