I was wonderfully surprised to find that I'd won the Judge's Choice Award at the Misty Mountain Quilt Fest in Blairsville, GA this past weekend. My second quilt show and my first ribbon! Nothing like starting at the top--I don't know that I'll ever surpass this or even come close again, but what a thrill!
It's so funny, the ribbon is almost as big as the quilt!
And even funnier, I had a whole wall to myself--and my little quilt was surrounded by black.
I'm laughing, because it is funny, but that doesn't mean that I don't feel a sense of honor and wonder for having been selected for this award. Thank you, Judge, and Misty Mountain Quilt Guild.
I also had a piece selected in the Small Works exhibition at the Oconee County Art Foundation in Watkinsville, GA.
It's been a successful fall harvest. Next stop is the Lickskillet Artist's Market . . .
And then in November, I'll be teaching "Not Your Grandmother's Embroidery" at the Cotton Patch Quilt Guild at the Lyndon House in Athens, GA on November 9th and "Carry It All Folio" at Dragonfly Quilt Shop in Watkinsville, GA on the 19th. It's turning into a great season for fiber art!
