My Big News

Just a quick post today. I've been working away at the Quilt for a Big Girl Bed. I finished the quilting, and have been working on the binding.

But my big news this week is I won!!! 

My entry #1 into the Bloggers Quilt Festival won in the Art Quilt category. I was so surprised and honored. I have never entered a festival (of any kind) before, so this was a Big Deal to me. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for my quilt. And thanks to Amy's Creative Side for hosting the Festival. I spent way too much time admiring all the wonderful quilts. And now I get to use my prize to buy more fabric (!!!!) at the Fat Quarter Shop thanks to their sponsorship. What fun!

I'll definitely have a finish to share on Friday. (I hope the weather cooperates this week for some pictures. It's been so dark here.)

I'm linking up today with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social..
