This week I have been preoccupied by my guild's quilt show, sewing hanging sleeves, submitting the quilts, and then volunteering at the show and seeing all the amazing quilts. I was also happy to learn that I won two ribbons.
The first photo shows the miniature quilt ribbons from the challenge. I love this display because my challenge quilt (pattern by Camille Roskelley) is sandwiched between two amazing quilts made by two wonderful quilting friends - Marilyn Watson above and Cheryl Wallace below!
I was struck by the thought that their pieces look so relaxing and calm, and mine looks "intense". I think it's because of the way I quilted it... that owl looks menacing! But the friendship stars are "containing the threat", so maybe the intensity fits my theme and I should say that I meant to do it that way!
Anyway, the owl fabric is in the other quilts too, but they used it so cleverly that you can hardly notice it.
And my second ribbon was in the small wallhanging category. This is Cascadia - which you might recognize from a sewalong by Lori at Humble Quilts. I love this quilt and use it as a cover on top of one of my sewing machines.
So today I will be relaxing with my thoughts and my stitching. I hope to finish the quilting on my Always Home wallhanging.
