Last night I received a phone call from Sherrel, pictured below, who entered her crane quilt into Vic Quilters Showcase this week. I blogged about this quilt last year sometime after Sherrel made it and I quilted it. She received a phone call early in the week asking her to attend the awards ceremony, which was held yesterday. Her quilt received a Highly Commended award! And the good part is that there are 2 ribbons awarded, one for the quilt maker, and one for the quilter. As Sherrel said, there’s another one to hang on my curtains.
A close up photo of the quilt when I had finished the quilting. All SID around the cranes and sashing, and patterns in the outside blocks.
This is the quilt when it was hanging in the Kaniva Quilt exhibition last October.
Well done Sherrel, for having a go and entering your quilt. It is such a buzz to have your quilt hanging in a State exhibition, even if you don’t win a ribbon. The quilt was entered into the Traditional category, and that usually has a lot of entries, so this is a great result.
Well, it’s time to head across the road to The Sanctuary for the weekend. There is one arrival, and a few more anytime now. No baby news yet, but a weekend to look forward to with old friends, and new friends to meet. Be back soon.
Blessings, From Jude
