    Three in one sweep

    A few months ago I have entered a quilt at Quilts UK in Malvern, one of the biggest quilt shows in Europe. Last weekend the show took place and I received the wonderful message that my quilt won three ribbons! 3rd in the category bed quilts, the Award for Wholecloths and the Award for Handquilting.

    Three ribbons in one sweep...I am so proud!

    Congratulations, a beautiful quilt. It's a show I go to every year, and as always the quilts were beautiful. I always find it a little less intimidating than the Festival of Quilts which is in Birmingham in August.

    Your work is spectacular ! No surprise it was going to get the recognition it deserves. Be proud. I know if it was me I would be standing a little taller.
    I hope to be able to see your work at one of the shows here in the US. I appreciate that you post them for us to see on the board ... but the thrill of seeing one in person...

    Nothing left for me to say - previous posts say it all - you go girl - you deserve three ribbons.
    Happy stitching

    Congratulations on another beautiful quilt and the well deserved awards. I love looking at your work, and I'm always happy when your work is awarded.

    I have a few questions

    First ... can we PLEASE see some closeups of your quilt design? Your designs are always beautiful and the execution is flawless.

    Second ... Is this quilt dyed or pieced strips? I am guessing dyed (or printed) because it is in the whole cloth category (unless the rules for that category are different in that show and they allow "some" piecing?).

    sue
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Here are some closeup pictures of the quilt. The strips are pieced, not dyed. There mostly are different rules in UK compared to US - strippy quilts like this one are considered as wholecloth quilts because the quilting, not the piecing makes the design of the quilt.
