It's official!

All the time and work I put into the big quilt was worth it!  It's hanging in the quilt show.  I'm pleased to see it's not so big it had to be draped on the floor (carefully folded onto sheets).  It just fits the poles.  There are several other quilts even larger, like the one behind it.  One was 113" x 130".  Wow!


And look what's on it!  Wooohooo!  Blue ribbon in Large Bed Quilts, Mixed Techniques.  **happy dance**  Gosh....I really thought the judges were going to ding me for all the flaws.  I guess in the end the flaws were only huge in my eyes.  :-)


Oh dear.  I look a bit wrinkled, don't I.  But happy!  :-)  It's been frightfully hot here so I dug out some shorts and capris.  I got this pair all ironed up this morning and got dressed at the last minute before I had to go out.  I had totally forgotten the zipper on these pants won't stay up!  LOL  Luckily I realized and grabbed a safety pin as I left the house, or it would have been a very interesting afternoon and evening.


We had the teacher show & tell this evening.  Of course now I wish I could take all of the classes.  But there was a book sale and signing reception so I did get to meet them all.  Lots of photos but I'm not going to do anything with them now.  Got to go to bed so I can get up early for class tomorrow.  :-)
