After quilting for 20 years, I finally entered a quilt in a quilt show! Our local guild joined together with three other area guilds for their biennial quilt show this weekend. One night at guild meeting they said our guild was short on entries, so I thought...why not? I'll give it a shot.
You probably remember my "Busy Little Christmas Elves" quilt. This pattern is by Gail Pan Designs and is right up there in my list of favorite quilts ever!
Guess what? It won a second place ribbon!!
I was just tickled pink! :)
I also entered this lovely quilt, but it didn't win. That's okay though...I love love love this quilt and it's mine all mine! The judges gave me glowing comments, and I admit, it was nice to read what others thought of it too.
The quilt show was interesting and I'm happy I entered for the experience...but honestly, I'm not too concerned what a "judge" thinks of my quilts. I make the quilts that I make because I'm intrigued by a pattern, or more likely because I love the fabrics.... or simply because I.love.quilting. The only opinion that matters is mine and my only hope is the person receiving the quilt will love it too! :)
