Random stuff from the at-the-moment-so-completely-disarranged-studio.
Spent way too much time making elephant cards (of sort, can’t really open them up and write on them, so I wrote on the back side of the ears!) and decorating envelopes for the kids in my Sunday School class. Just decided to have fun and enjoy the making.
I was very pleased last weekend to learn that I had received Third Place in Original Design at the 2011 Georgia Celebrates Quilt show. This was the second time I had entered this show (you may remember my blog post). I love the fact that I won a ribbon, wouldn’t trade it for the world, except that there were some very labor intensive, beautiful, traditional quilts there that perhaps deserved a ribbon more than mine. My take on this is that there should be a totally separate category for art quilts vs. traditional quilting. Original Design is maybe not definitive enough. But the judges still thought my binding “needs improvement!” Heck, they were lucky I bound it at all! That was the same comment I received about my first entry 8 or 9 years ago! I wonder if anyone has ever done a perfect binding!
See what I mean about beautiful quilts??!!!
