Wonderful day at National Quilt Championships

I knew I had won the Machine Quilting Award with Wings of Love, but the Judges Merit ribbon was a lovely surprise. Click on the photos to see it enlarged. The thread was a wonderful variegated one from Auriful.
And 2nd Place in the Small Wall Hanging with Feather Journey#2 was something which made me very happy.
The Best of Show was hand quilted and beautifully appliqu├ęd by Sandi Lush. Very well deserved.
But my favourite quilt was not in the competition, I just love the following quilt
I have very eclectic tastes and this one is even brighter and more exuberant in real life, I LOVE IT!

  1. Your success was well deserved as both quilts are so beautiful. I can see why you liked the star quilt, a really unusual layout too as well as fantastic colours.

  5. Congratulations! I saw that small quilt at MQX and fell in love with it.

    BTW, I will be visiting London in September (9 - 17). Would love to meet you one day if it's possible. I will have most of the week days free.
