Excellent news about Las Ventanas! It won First Place in the First Entry in Paducah category at AQS Paducah, Kentucky this week. What an honor and a thrill. I am just so surprised. I think this must be a difficult category to judge since the styles of quilts are so variable. If you want to see the other winners in the category, you can watch the YouTube video of the awards ceremony, just skip to 54:00 minutes. I just entered this one on a whim, but I am so happy I did!
