I’ve been playing with these old blocks.
They were pretty much of a piecing nightmare, so I took them apart and re-pieced them, using the original color combinations as often as I could. And, I made a few extra blocks to go with them, to bring me to 16. Of course, the layout doesn’t look like that anymore. And, there were two red blocks that aren’t laying here because I thought one of the reds ran during steam pressing, but when I tested it this morning, it didn’t bleed, so they’re back in.
But, that’s not what you want to hear about. You want to hear about the something new.
The Point is the Points won first place in its category, large pieced quilts.
And, A Place for Life to Happen won first place in its category, other techniques. It also won Overall Best Quilting on a small quilt for the show (purple ribbon).
The bird didn’t win anything, but that’s okay. People are getting to see it and I’ll get feedback on it.
So, I’m pretty much walking on cloud 9 this morning. I missed having Rob and Sydney there, but it was nice to be surrounded by my bee members, (four of us won ribbons!!!) and friends.
Everybody have a great Friday. Tomorrow, when the family goes to the show, I’ll take more pictures.
Oh, and guess what? A guy won best of show. Whoo-hoo. Yes, that man quilts, too.
