I don’t know what to say.

Yesterday, was a travel day for us. We’d been away from home for the week and I was looking forward to my own bed. While in and out of airports, I was catching emails, here and there, and lo and behold the unofficial congratulations started rolling in. I kept waiting for an official announcement but couldn’t get the web page I needed, to load, on my phone…. Eventually I was able to get to it and boy was I blown away!

Bubbles was voted in the top three of the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival‘s Viewer’s Choice Awards! Oh man! The competition was so tough. I still can’t believe it. From what I hear, I think my quilt seemed like something people thought they could conquer. Which, of course, they can. I am so glad to have shared this project and the makings of it because it seems to be what many people were looking for.

Bubble Quilt by Sewfrench

I’ve met so many interesting people, come up with many, new and challenging ideas and have discovered so many more wonderful blogs over these past couple of weeks. I just hope I don’t get tangled up in reading and miss out on the creating and doing!

I love hearing from all who stop by and enjoy all your questions and comments. So keep them coming! I hope to, eventually, reply to everyone.

I just can’t say thank you enough for all the love I’m feeling. I send it right back to you, and I hope you spread it around. ♥

    In a day and age when most people seem to be using someone else’s patterns and the quickie route, I’m so glad to see the prize go to someone who trusts their own creative juices enough to put them to fore. Good going!

      I am touched Julie! Thank you for saying that.
      It is so easy, with such easy access to the internet quilting world, to get caught up in trying to do more, more, more that are really just varieties of everyone else’s projects. I appreciate you noticing.
