Third Prize, Ensemble Bed Quilts!
What a surprise! People often say they're surprised if they receive an honor, but honestly, I was amazed. I walked in and was handed the list of prize winners, which I didn't even glance at. I wandered around, taking in the big winners, found my wall quilt entry inconspicuous in a corner, and was unable to find Peppermint Stars, until finally, I looked down at the list and saw my name. Stunned, I kept looking and there it was, with its ribbon and its sign crediting the sponsor of the prize. Thank you Deb Geyer, for the beautiful quilting, which really shows up in this picture.
This was the highlight, but I had a very enjoyable trip in general, and will post some more show pictures in a day or two.
