Clara and Jenny's generosity is so appreciated.

Here they are~Clover & Violet's Patterns that I did won First place Champion Ribbons 2 years in a row. These embroideries are loved by all. Very precious and they have them free on their website.

 While trying to make quilting decisions for this quilt, I'm super pleased with the micro stippling that I did in the background of the embroideries, it really made the motifs pop out. I also wanted to try to make some scrolling look like garden gate scrolling. Knowing that needed to be done in black scared me to bits. I wasn't sure I wanted to quilt in black but I think it worked.

Aren't the little flowers so sweet.  Thank you again Clara and Jenny.

County Fair Quilts 2013

My Elk quilt won first place at our County Fair. And this picture taken by Moriah is absolutely gorgeous. We had a lot of fun. I haven't said much but I have been keeping myself busy by teaching 15 girls here in my hometown how to sew. There were many entries to be had and it was so fun seeing all of the girls' things laid out with ribbons on them. I don't take pictures of them and their things for privacy sake, but believe me they are very talented. We had Best of Show winners, Champion winners and many 1st place winners. It was all very fun.

Here is another quilt that I made with another QAL by Clover and Violet called Garden Steps.  I won another First Place Champion ribbon with their pattern. Isn't it beautiful. I'll blog more with pictures tomorrow, but head on over to their website and see all of their pretty things.

So Blessed

I'm so thankful today for my photographer, for without her I would have never been picked for Best Photograhed Quilt by!  We've had so much fun together and I'm so proud of her. She has a heart of gold, and such a bright future. Thank you Moriah for all of your hard work, and I pray that you will get to do what you love, often and can make a career out of it if you want to.
