Tula Pink and I have been talking about making quilts to enter in quilting shows.
In the meantime, we decided to enter the Cartwheels quilt in a juried quilt show here in Kansas City. That means that the winner is picked by a judge and not by the popular vote. It wasn’t quilted specifically for show (there are many thing to consider when “quilting for show” that aren’t done on a regular quilt), but I thought that we would just give it a shot and see what happens.
And it won third place! I was pretty excited about the fact that the first and second place quilt were hand-quilted (if I remember correctly). If you follow my convoluted way of thinking, then we practically won first place for machine quilting. Tula Pink and I are going to be an awesome, show quilting team. With her expert piecing and one-of-a-kind designs and my quilting, we are gonna have a blast!
Also, a couple of my customers won ribbons as well! I was so distracted talking to people that I only got a photo of Sharon’s quilt.
Congrats Sharon! You definitely deserved it!
~Thanks for looking~
