A Nice Surprise

     I wasn't able to go to the Vermont Quilt Festival this year as we arrived here about a week later. But I did submit one of my quilts, Rooflines 4. I re-titled it Rooflines #4: The Barns. I found out via a friend on facebook that it received one of the three Judges Choice awards and a red ribbon.

  It had a few "technical" issues-a few spots of bad thread tension and a little ripple that I am sure came back after folding it and packing it in a box. But someone liked it as much as I do! Just reminds me of the barns here in Vermont.

   You can find the complete list here: Vermont Quilt Festival Contest.  The picture of my quilt is upside down. I had to laugh as I put two sleeves on it because it was so long it needed another rod on the bottom. I wonder if they hung it this way in the show.  Haha!

   You have seen it many times but here it is again.

We are hoping to go to fireworks tonight although the rain might postpone it. Happy 4th!


  1. Congratulations on the awards. Upside down or right side up, it'd look good anyway you hang it.

  2. Congratulations!

  3. Woo Hoo! It's a WOW! Congratulations!

  4. Way to go!! Congratulations twice!
