I had a phone call on Thursday evening to tell me I had won 1st place in the Large Bed category at the Auckland Festival of Quilts Show.
What a fabulous surprise it was, as the standard of quilt making in the Auckland Quilt Guild is very high. My quilt was beautifully machine quilted by a good friend Judi who has a long arm machine.
Along with the usual categories in a show the AQG has a category of one or more makers which doesn’t receive a Blue ribbon, but an aqua coloured ribbon. That ribbon doesn’t count in the achievements of Blue Ribbons.
I haven’t had a quilt win a ribbon since 2006 so I was over the moon as you can tell!!
FIFTY SHADES OF CREAM!
