World Quilt Show 2014

The World Quilt Show opened this week in Manchester, New Hampshire, USA. I received the wonderful news that my quilt Christmas Crazy won an Honourable Mention in the Traditional Category.

I was especially thrilled because it was in the same section as the applique quilts and although judges usually say how lovely my quilts are, they usually award the prizes to the appliqued ones.

Three other Australians won prizes and you can see all the list of winners and photos by clicking on this link, World Quilt Show 2014

After this show the quilts will tour the USA going to Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza in September, the Pacific International Quilt Festival in San Francisco, in October and the World Quilt Show in Florida in January 2015.

I won't see my quilt again until next year. My Christmas quilt won't be home for Christmas!

My quilts are definitely more travelled than me.

Bye for now,

Congratulations Linda - you certainly deserve awards because your quilts are beautiful. It's a pity that it won't be back for Christmas, but I'm sure you've got plenty of other hand made Christmas decorations at your house.

I must admit I do have plenty of Christmas decorations and probably won't miss the quilt. Thanks Wendy

Congratulations Linda, it must be a great thrill to know just how good your quilt is and that others really appreciate your design and skill.
