I am sharing this quilt "In My Garden" once again because I found out today that it has been accepted in the Paducah quilt show. I have not had a quilt I felt was good enough to exhibit for some time so I am excited to have it in this particular show. I live close enough to go so the pleasure will be double, just being able to see it hang in the show. "In My Garden" also was entered in PIQF in CA last fall. I am happy to say it won best Hand Workmanship. When this year is over, it will go to my daughter Kelly. I hope she loves it as much as I do. This post is another call for hand work quilts. Please quilters, remember that if you don't enter your quilts in shows and competitions, the category "Applique, Hand" will go away. Frankly, as a hand applique lover, it could not be a better time to enter. The entries are so small, your chances to win are great. If that sounds insulting, I do not mean it that way. Sounds like I may be saying that we can only win if there is no competition. That couldn't be further from the truth. I am here, you are out there, the artists and quilts exist! Please share, if you win, wonderful, if not remember your quilt will touch someone! I have literally thousands of pictures of quilts and most did not win anything, but each and every one of them called out to me. let your quilts do the same.

I love your quilt, especially since I know I was taking your class when you made your quilt. Mine is in the same condition as when you saw it last - without borders. They are "in progress" though! LOL!
