What's that in the Box ??

Happy Sunday to all...

Well, my linen quilt entitled "Sonoma Sunday" finally came home...  it had quite the journey...
(if you want to see it,(again:)  )  ,   click on "Lace and Linens " tab above, and you can see all my linen quilts.


Look what was in the box:

PARTY TIME !!!  TWO RIBBONS............

I sent Sonoma Sunday to the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival... to my delight , it won a "Judges' Choice" ribbon - hooray ! 

Well, the winners from Mid-Atlantic were on display at the New Jersey show, which immediately follows - so Mancuso people took my quilt to New Jersey.

Then, I had entered it in Savannah, but there wasn't time to ship it to CA and back, so the very nice people at Mancuso (hi Claire) took it to Savannah ! 

And it won another ribbon - this time "Best Interpretation of Theme, Wall Quilt Division"......

AND A CHECK CAME IN THE MAIL, TOO !

To any of you reading this that are shy to enter the national shows - please do !!  If you are worried about being upset by reading judges comments - I have a tip for you - YOU DON'T HAVE TO READ THEM !!!!  But if you do, you could learn something about what they see when they look at your quilt...:)...

Meanwhile, I keep working and working on Bodega Bay, the piece I hope to finish this summer...





 
and I played with a little teapot panel I won in a giveaway.   Made a sweet baby quilt, I think.

 
 
 
 
There's a little weekend left  - - ENJOY !!!
