I got a phone call today...One of the best I have ever had...my quilt "slice of life" won a cash prize at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. I entered in the group category and so I share the honor with the 7 woman who made a block for my quilt: Suzanne Thibeault, Louise Redding, Gail Niland, June Peckingam, Carol Middleton, Jane Lowell and Linda Ramrath. The subject line was the heading of the email I got.
This is such an honor. I would love to go and receive the prize in person. I don't know if I can make it happen but I will try. Anyone have a friend in Houston that wouldn't mind a house guest:)?
I also entered the quilt below "Jade Willow" but it didn't get in.
I love the story of the blue willow and have a collection of blue willow plates. I made this quilt to be hung over the bed in our masterbedroom done in the same color scheme.
this is a close up of the willow tree, it's 3D I want to do that again, loved the results.
the color is off in this picture the true wall color is in the background of the quilt photo
