Quilt Show Results

Daughter entered the Home Machine Quilting Show (www.hmqs.org).  Youth division, of course, as she is 11. 

I don’t really know that she slept since we received a call on Tuesday saying that she should attend the awards ceremony. 

So, as soon as her math test was complete, we busted her out of school and made it to the ceremony with 5 minutes to spare.

It was so worth it.

She was able to visit with some very kind fans people who asked questions about her quilt.

And have a new experience or two. (No, we are not getting one.)

Thanks to all who have encouraged and supported her.  It is such a remarkable experience to have such a remarkable daughter. 

PS–If you are interested in seeing more of her work, check out the SMALL QUILTS FOR SALE tab above. She has some new ones coming soon.  A lot had to be put on hold while she prepared for this show.  She also takes custom orders if you have a special request.
