    My first ever win.

    What a shock! At our Christmas party yesterday, we had a President's challenge contest. There were three prizes for large and three for small quilts. I won first prize in the large category. The challenge was to find a paint chip that started with the first initial of our first name and then use that color in a quilt. I found a blue and also a gold chip. The pattern is from the book Bella Bella Quilts by Nora McMeeking. I have never won anything in the past. My quilt is machine pieced, mostly paper pieced and hand quilted.
    Thank you for looking.
    Ann

    This is spectacularly gorgeous! I love the bella bella quilts but have abstained from ordering her book, I already have so much on my bucket list. You did a great job on this and your fabric selections REALLY make this quilt look like a beautiful Italian floor tile mosaic. Absolutely drool worthy.
