Thank you. Thank you very much!

I don’t know what to say… But I am feeling the love this morning.

Every time the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival rolls around I tell myself I won’t enter again. I put too much stress on myself and I don’t like that feeling. Then I enter. Again. And you, my friends, must like what I am doing otherwise I wouldn’t keep winning :)

"Take a Hike" quilt inspiration by Sewfrench

The festival was full of so many creative and inspirational quilts. I am continually amazed at how everyone challenges themselves just a little more, each year. It just gets better and better! Winning, after seeing the competition, means more than I can say.

I have to throw out an especially big thank you to Beyond the Reef for sponsoring the Art Quilt category. I had never heard of them until this festival. What a fun little niche they have. And guess whose fabric they carry?? One of my very favorites, Marcia Derse! I may have won a prize package from them but I suspect they will be the real winners. Cha-Ching!!

I also have to thank Tawni, owner of Interquilten, my local, Up North, quilt shop. If not for her class offerings and wonderful instructing, I might never have attempted this. (And it definitely wouldn’t have turned out so realistic!)

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

Now go check out all the winners!

      OMGosh! I am SO happy YOU won Shannon!! When I couldn’t vote for my own I voted for yours! If I couldn’t win the Viewers Choice then I’m glad it was you. And not just because that took you out of the competition of the Art Category!! I want to try your technique!
