12 Ribbons

I think I did pretty okay at the Lake County Fair. It was the first show I had ever done, and I’m so happy I did it! I won two best in show ribbons. One for my Machine Quilted Quilt, “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”, and another for my rug made from scraps of fabric and cording. I got a handful of other ribbons for some of my other work, including: River in Flames, and Alice in The Garden of Eden. I’m beyond words at this point. I finally got a chance to swing by there and take some photos, and it was so worth it! It really made all the hard work I put into quilting seem worth it! I know I shouldn’t need ribbons to make myself feel like I’m doing a good job, but it does make me warm and fuzzy! I had some very stiff competition; I’m already getting ready for next year. Next year my goal is 30 pieces! We’ll see! Wish me luck!

 

I’m Entering Show’s Again

Everyone knows how my favorite quilt was rejected by a quilt show, and I made the mistake of of taking it personally. However, now that my quilt has some legitimate credentials, I decided to start entering it in quilt shows. I know I need to grow a thicker skin, and not take things personally, but it’s still an effort. Wish me luck! I just filled out my first call to entry form tonight! I’m excited!

Best In Show

I can’t believe it! I won Best In Show at the Indiana Lake County Fair for my quilt “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”. I’m not going to lie, I’m thrilled, and I worked so hard on that quilt. It came at just the right time, because I really needed it. When I submitted this quilt to a different quilt show, they wouldn’t even jury it in. I had put so much time and energy, and by this is by far my best quilt I have made thus far. I was really bummed about that for a couple of weeks, but this totally turned that around. I’m so grateful they liked my quilt. I won in a couple other categories, and I’ll find out everything when I go to the fair this weekend. I’m so happy!!!!

I Present “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”

After about 20 hours of work, it’s finally bound ready to be hung on the wall! It shouldn’t be there for long though, as I’m filling out the application for the Shipshewana Quilt show in Indiana this summer! Then after that, it’s going in the Lake County Fair in Crown Point, In.  I’m not sure after that, but I’m so proud of it, and I love the way it turned out! I was really lucky to not have had trouble with the paint, as it was my first time using it in this application. I just love it! After the shows, I’m putting it up for sale, but to be honest, I kind of want to keep it! Wish me luck!

“It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”

I’m almost through with my new piece, “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”. There is still the silhouette of a little boy walking into the woods that has to be embroidered, but after that, I’ll be picking out backings! Now if I can only get the thing to stay flat! I’ll have to pick up some fusible interfacing for it. I’m really excited! Wish me luck!
