I normally try to avoid this, but wanted to share the news that my Mother's Garden Quilt won 1st place in the Wall Hand Quilted category at the AQS Lancaster 2012 Quilt Show.
I am beyond surprised. I was thrilled to have it accepted and for other quilters to see it.
Betsy, a guild friend, sent me this phone picture from the show this morning. Thanks Betsy~
And here is Abe with Betsy's beautiful Silk quilt -

After the dentist and house chores I plan to sit down with this and celebrate properly.
Thank you to all my quilt and blog friends who have encouraged me through many quilting projects and goals!
This is especially sweet for me because the quilt is a tribute to my mother, Catherine Clarkson Bednar 7/11/42 - 12/10/90.
