A Terrific Day
Tonite was our guild meeting. And it was the announcement of the winners of the president's challenge. Well, now I can reveal my big secret. I entered 2 quilts. Everyone just thought I entered my 3D quilt.... the wild flower one pictured above. What no one knew was that I entered a second 'more 'traditional quilt. The leaf quilt pictured here as well.
The small leaves are all beaded and it took an hour and a half for each leaf to complete. There is a ton of machine quilting and it is mostly hand dyed fabric by myself.
Anyway, I did okay. I won 3rd place in viewer's choice with my leaf quilt, and my 3D quilt won Viewer's choice.. And my leaf quilt won the president's choice. I finally won at our guild. I was happy.
I also had a wonderful thing happen as well but will post that separately, as it is not quilt related, but love related.
