But Wait, There's More!

Love in the Digital Age

Yesterday at work I got a call on my cell phone from Paducah, KY.  I knew I had to take it because I had contacted AQS about getting my quilt above shipped back quickly after the AQS QuiltWeek Chattanooga show so I can get it to PIQF on time.  I figured it was about that, but was so delighted to find out it was to inform me that Love in the Digital Age won 1st Place in the Wall Quilt-Modern category!  What a surprise!  They asked that I keep it to myself until today.  It has been such a week of good news that I am pinching myself!  You can see photos of the main winners and a list of the category winners here.  I did a little google search to see the other winners in my category and they are stunning!  I'm in excellent company- wow!  All of the winners will be published in the next issue of American Quilter Magazine.  I look forward to that!

Shattered Dresden

Making things even sweeter, I saw that I missed a call last night from someone at the Northwest Quilting Expo.  This show takes place next week- September 24-26 in Portland, Oregon.  I have these two quilts in the show- Shattered Dresden and Bright Lights, Big City.  I wondered what the call could be about.  I hoped there wasn't a problem with my quilts because it seemed to early for someone to call with a prize notice.  Today I called back and found out it was to tell me that Shattered Dresden got 2nd Place in the Modern Quilt category!  My jaw just dropped!  What wonderful news!  Unfortunately, I am not in Chattanooga and I won't be able to attend the Expo either. I will be in a Gwen Marston workshop next week and it's also my son's birthday.  I hope my quilts have fun without me. If only wall (quilts) could talk!
