Blogger's Quilt Festival - Circles Quilt

I am once again participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival organised by Amy of Amy's Creative Side from October 25 to November 8, 2013. The Blogger's Quilt Festival is an online quilt festival where bloggers from around the world showcase a quilt. Once you have had a look here, head on over and take some time viewing the other wonderful quilts.
This time, I am sharing a quilt made by my customer Sally.  Sally has tackled curved piecing for the first quilt she has ever made with wonderful results.  I love Sally's selection of oranges, blues and greens.
Sally's quilt has been quilted with a simple figure 8 loop for a modern looking quilt.
I hope you have enjoyed Sally's quilt - remember to head on over to see many of the other wonderful quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival - enjoy!

MQX Quilt Festival Ribbon

I was thrilled to find out late last week that Double Cream has won an international ribbon.  I had entered Double Cream in the Wholecloth Large Category at MQX West in Portland and was very excited to find that it had won First Place in that category.  It was an honour to have my quilt exhibited amongst such incredible quilters but even more so for my quilt to be awarded a ribbon.

I wish I had been able to be there but thanks to Jackie Kunkel of Canton Village Quilt Works who took some photos for me, I was able to feel a part of it.  I can't wait to see the photos of the other quilts in the exhibition.
I would like to thank the organisers Janet-Lee Greer Santeusanio and Mary Schilke for organising a fabulous quilt show as well as the sponsors, in particular Superior Threads who were the sponsors for the Wholecloth Large Category.
