I won a ribbon!

My “Hannah” quilt won a prize at QuiltCon! Check out the awesome handmade ribbon:

Here’s the announcement on the Modern Quilt Guild’s website. It got high marks for Design, Workmanship, Quilting and Binding. Here’s the comment I received from the judge:

Very subtle quilt even with so much going on. Feels ‘alive!’ Purple on back does not contribute to the quilt, nor does purple binding, but green really works.

I of course disagree very strongly with the purple comment, A. it’s for a 6 year old and B. it’s my trademark to shake it up with the binging. Maybe I’m too modern for the Modern Quilt Guild. Ha! 🙂

Mom, thanks for doing such a fantastic job on the quilting! And thank you Hannah for letting me borrow the quilt for the show.

    I just love this quilt and so glad I got to do the machine quilting. I may do the geometric design on the quilt I’m working on now. 🙂
