I was astounded to learn that “Mom’s Lily Bed” won the Runner-Up ribbon for Best of Show at Pacific International Quilt Festival last weekend! I was over the moon! I still feel kind of shell shocked, in a good way.Can’t even believe this ribbon!I’m pretending to be normal but inside I am jumping up and down, screaming, skipping!There’s my quilt in the “Winner’s Circle”-who’d a thunk it?AND I EVEN WIN A SEWING MACHINE!My Daisy Vest also ribboned and received an Honorable Mention in the Vest, Jacket, Coat category!
Is this all for real or am I dreaming?
I will be having both professionally photographed when I get them back, but in the meantime I’ve included some additional photos of “Mom’s Lily Bed”. I used these in a previous post, but I know you’re not going to page back to it! It is exceptionally difficult to photograph a whole cloth quilt, so you have to bear with me.By the way, that beautiful fabric on the border is raw silk by Linda M Designs. I also used Radiance fabric by Robert Kaufman for the center, dupioni silk for the inset and binding and wool batting. I also used a variety of threads: metallic, rayon, cotton, silk as well as seed beads.
I’ll probably have 2 posts about all the exceptional quilts and garments at PIQF in a few days, when I return to earth!
