I enter quilts in QuiltFest Jacksonville because it is fun. I never really expect to win anything. But this year after judging I got a call to inform me I won an Honorable Mention in the Large Pieced category.
I almost fell out of my chair. But it is a great feeling. I only wish I could have shared the news with Jules. The first day of the show I decided to wear his chemo hat for a photo so he would be included in my celebration. One of my friends saw the photo and thought I was growing my hair!
In case you missed the process posts of this quilt, it is completely hand pieced and hand quilted (by me). Finding the proper border was a story in itself. But I don’t think I ever showed a picture of the label. Photo on left also shows the hanging sleeve. I will post photos of some other show quilts soon.
