    I have worked all year on a BOM quilt for a friend. I told her she couldn't have it until after the fair. I entered it in the fair and was very, very suprised that I got Grand Champion. The quilt was Back to Nature. I haven't learned how to post pics yet but I have seen pics of it here on the board and it is very pretty. My friend loves the quilt and that makes it worth all the work.

    please, do post a pic! It's very easy - click "reply" at the bottom of the last post. Type your comments in the white box. Under that, you will see 3 white rectangles with the words "file attachments" above them. Click on the "Browse" button, and it will open a window that shows the contents of your computer. Go to where your pictures are stored, click on the picture you want to show, and click "open" (or just double-click). Then click "Send" and your picture will post!

    Just make sure it's not huge - usually I try to keep them smaller than 1M.

    block of the month-you pay every month and the quilt store sends you enough fabric to make the next block until you are finished

    WOW - GRAND CHAMPION? I would be over the moon, was this your first quilt that you have ever entered? Don't really need an answer to that question, just curious, but I'm excited for you. Isn't it wonderful when your work gets noticed and wins an award? Good job girl.
