13 Quilts featured on Quilt Story!

Posted by Strlady at 4:06 AM 4 comments
When I posted the story of my daughter’s 13 quilts, many of you enjoyed it and RC even suggested I submit it to Quilt Story. Well, my sister took it out of my hands and submitted it on my behalf!

Heather and Megan appeared to share your enthusiasm and have featured the post today! That post means a lot to me, not just as quilter but as a mother, and it warms my heart that it was embraced by all who read it.

Thank you all for dropping by, for your encouragement and for simply sharing a few minutes of your day with me.

Someone brought home a ribbon...

Posted by Strlady at 1:13 PM 6 comments
Back in August, before the craziness began, I put Beth into the Images 2011 quilt show.

I had never entered a quilt into a show but when my sister told me that the deadline for submissions to the Images 2011 show was almost upon us, I got a serious itch to send in a picture. I was a bit floored when Beth was accepted into the juried show.
When Beth returned from Margaret's I was insanely happy. I knew she would not disappoint.

But of course, with quilting like this...

and this...

I could easily accept that she would impress. LOL!

I was still surprised when I received an email letting me know that my entry had won a ribbon!

I was not able to actually see Beth on display, but I sent a good entourage to represent.

My sister who says I'm a REAL quilter

and my daughter was doing her best to document the occasion.

I can't tell you how happy I am with this quilt and how I'm going to be working hard to get my daughter her own wedding quilt so I can have Beth back at home. LOL!
