A Great Moment

Anyone who has quilted for even a little while has heard of Paducah - and the American Quilters Society Quilt Show. In 1992, I sent in slides of my quilt Blooms in the Night to be considered for the show that year. To my amazement and delight, Blooms was juried in. I bundled the quilt as instructed and sent it on to Kentucky. The evening before the show, I received a call telling me I had won second prize in Amateur Applique. It was such a thrill - I floated on air for some time. In 2002, I had another quilt juried in which did not win a prize but it is indeed winning to have your quilt hanging there with all the other beautiful quilts. (Click to enlarge)
