SOQS Wendy's Wish Postcards for 2015

You may remember this stack of fabric postcards I showed a while ago here and here.  Well, today the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show has posted the Michael Miller Challenge winners on Facebook.  They have also posted the silent auction cards that will be specially matted and framed.  I am happy to say my dog has been chosen for the silent auction!

The kitty was not chosen for either, but I think it may be sold as a specialty matted card.

I am very honored that my Be Who You Are Bird has been chosen for an Honorable Mention in the Michael Miller Challenge!  I was really surprised about that.  Be sure to check out the rest of the winners. My friend Marion has gotten 3rd Place with her very cool spiral.  I love them all!

These last three cards of mine were chosen to be specialty matted.  This is a new category of pricing for these cards.  The Wendy's Wish folks are continually updating their methods to take advantage of the various types of cards that are sent in.  They already have donated custom framing for over 80 cards per year, but with the high quality cards they get they decided to have this specialty matted category for the ones that couldn't get framed, but deserve to be sold at a higher price than some.  These will have custom matting done so when the card is bought it is all ready for a custom framing or for a standard frame.  I look forward to seeing how they look.
