    I won Honorable Mention on Quilt University's Virtual Quilt Show

    I was completely overwhelmed this morning when I was surfing around and looked at the Quilt University's Virtural Quilt show for 2011. When I scrolled down the Applique category, there was my Dad's fabric portrait. It was by pure chance that I was even there so I was really surprised to see my quilt. I am so honored to have this piece chosen and I know my Dad would be very proud too.

    You did deserve a prize but they should also inform you.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.
