So exciting!

I  had a phone call on Thursday evening to tell me I had won 1st place in the Large Bed category at the Auckland Festival of Quilts Show.

What a fabulous surprise it was, as the standard of quilt making in the Auckland Quilt Guild is very high. My quilt was beautifully machine quilted by a good friend Judi who has a long arm machine.

Along with the usual categories in a show the AQG has  a category of one or more makers  which doesn’t receive a Blue ribbon, but an aqua coloured ribbon. That ribbon doesn’t count in the achievements of Blue Ribbons.

I haven’t had a quilt win a ribbon since 2006 so I was over the moon as you can tell!!

FIFTY SHADES OF CREAM!

Oh my, Sue! This is such wonderful news for you! I'm more than happy for you. It sure looks like you deserve this win. I do love the quilt, and the name is perfect for it. Really, it's such a simple design, yet so effective in all those neutrals. Just lovely. Congratulations!
