Went to the Quilter's Gathering this past weekend where one of my sistahs, Shari, was awarded the Publisher's Award for her Cello quilt: A Mighty Fortress (from the song A Mighty Fortress is Our God). My description of this quilt will not do it justice without a photo, so I won't even try. Once I get a photo I'll post it. It's an outstanding quilt which is beautifully crafted and has the best story. Shari is an amazing person and quilter and she stitched her heart and soul into this quilt. To share her excitement was the best! I cannot wait to see what her new adventure will be!
The Scrap Basket quilt which I posted about earlier was awarded the Founder's Ribbon. I'm again humbled and honored and anxious to get the quilt home and retire it to the wall in the foyer.
There were beautiful quilts in the show. Something for everyone and every style and technique. It's so inspiring to go to shows and look at quilts and read their stories. Quilts are meant to be shown!
