Hooray for Art Quilts!



2013 WFQG Quilt Show


Yes, indeed!  I had one heck of a great weekend.  I entered 6 pieces  in the Wings Falls Quilt Guild show and came home with a stash of goodies….1 Best of Show, 2 exceptional merit, 4 blue, 2  First Place log cabin challenge ribbons and 4 yellow vendor’s ribbons.  As a non-conforming fiber artist in a very traditional guild, it is a much-needed ego boost to have my work recognized.  I played by all the quilt judging rules, created my own original art, and won anyway!  I think art quilting may be here to stay!  Hooray for us! And….. Hooray for my 1972 Singer Genie which was the only machine I used to create every ribbon winner.

  1. Hurrah! Indeed! Congratulations, very well deserved. I enjoyed meeting you and seeing your quilts in person. You have a great creative spirit:-)

    While at the show I test drove the handi quilter sweet 16 and am seriously considering buying one. I do a lot of free motion quilting and loved it. Do you know anyone that has one or have heard good or bad about them from real quilters?
