I'm So Excited

And I just can't hide it. Last night was the Awards ceremony for my guild's quilt show "Georgia Celebrates Quilts". I was thrilled that my Whig Rose quilt won an award for Best Appliqué and Best Hand Quilting. I have shown this quilt before but here it is bedecked with the award ribbons.

Such pretty ribbons made by a quilt guild member who does a lovely job for each show making all the ribbons!

I was so excited that I did not even take any pictures of the other quilts so hopefully I will have the chance to do that today. With so many wonderful entries I am humbled by my award. If you are in the Atlanta area, it is a great show and is open today through Saturday at His Hands Church in Woodstock, GA. It is the largest show in Georgia and is a NQA judged and juried show with over 350 entries and some wonderful vendors, raffles and silent auctions. Should be a great weekend!

Beautiful quilt and beautiful work. It is wonderful that you have received recognition for your hand applique and hand quilting. Here in South Texas this type of work is not appreciated anymore. I will continue to be a traditional quilter as I love the hand applique and hand quilting - keep up the good work. Congratulations!
