On a personal note, it was exciting to win my first Best of Show-Small for a friendship quilt made with four others: Marcus Weekley, Cathy Reininger, Julia Graber, and Rita Warnock. (Our show awards two Best of Show awards--a Large and a Small.) I have shown the five sections in this earlier post. We were pleased at how the finished piece looked when the five sections were presented together. The award was a Nechi EX100 machine, and we thought of King Solomon's wisdom in what to do with one award to share among the five of us. We plan to sell it and split the proceeds.

My Round Robin Pathways won a third place ribbon; it is amazing me with its third award in the three shows it has appeared in. Since it "grew like Topsy" by being designed in six stages with each round being a surprise, it seems appropriate that it continues its adventures.
