Lucky me!!

On Thursday last week I wasn't able to make it to guild, and I'm so disappointed that I couldn't get there, because I got the most amazing phone call! My quilt won the Viewers Choice Award!!!

I just picked up the ribbon from Vicki today and I can't stop looking at it! I almost need to pinch myself to remember that it really happened. I feel so very blessed - thank you so much to everyone who voted for my quilt - I was genuinely so very surprised, at no time did I think my quilt was a contender!! Colour me thrilled :-)

In other much less interesting news, I managed to get two more HOQH blocks put together this week:

Block 39 - Cut Glass Dish

Another bunch of 1" HST's checked off the list - I could make them in my sleep I'm sure! I wish I knew where I got that toile style fabric from - I really like it and don't think I have any more in my stash.

Block 15 - Puss in the Corner

This block looks kind of wonky in the picture which surprised me, I didn't think it looked that bad in real life. Hopefully it looks good when it's all stitched into the final quilt.

Yesterday I quilted the little top I made recently, and I'm in the middle of binding it right now, as soon as I have a chance I'll share a picture, it's looking quite sweet. Chatter soon folks! xox

Oh, well done! That's exciting. Your quilt certainly deserved the distinction.

Janet said...

Well deserved ribbon for you. Congratulations. Wish I could see it in person. Love the fabric choices on the blocks, yes I love that toile too. Thank you for sharing.

Congratulations! Viewer's Choice is my favorite ribbon. It means more to me what the show attendees think than the judges. Well deserved for sure!

Tazzie, Beautiful quilt. Congratulations, glad to hear of your winning three ribbons for your Caswell Quilt. The toile fabric in your Cut Glass Dish Block 39 looked like a blue toile fabric I have, so I went looking for my fabric, but I don't think it is the same. My fabric is called Staples by Marsha Mc Closley for CLOTHWORKS My fabric is a close second to yours. Jane
