I’m getting back in the groove after our trip. Yesterday I spent most of the day stitching the binding on Black Swan (formerly The Ugly Quilt). I’ll have that finished today and work on the label.
Yesterday was a big mail day too. The Mancuso company was kind enough to hold off shipping my quilts back so that they would not arrive while we were gone. I was happy to see them yesterday.
I was thrilled to get the ribbon! I didn’t expect any recognition for Lura’s Choice so to get “Best Use of Color” was like best of show for a fabric dyer.
But the best part was getting a photo of me and Mom with the quilt. Since this quilt honors my grandmother it was like having the three of us together again.
The judge’s comments from the show are sparse. I got good comments on both quilts but nothing really constructive that I can build on. Each quilt basically got 2 sentences and there was no scoring. That’s kind of disappointing but my favorite comment was “good use of values”. Yay!
