Thread: Ribbon from quilt show

    As a last minute "what the heck", I entered three of my quilts in our local guild's show which was last weekend. I had never entered anything in a juried show before. Imagine my shock when I found out one of them actually won!! I got second place in the traditional pieced category. I walked right by it, too, thinking 'it's mine -- seen that before'. I knew something was up when fellow guild members were congratulating me as I was walking around looking at all the quilts on display. I'm a little sad, though, because I don't even get to keep this quilt -- it's already promised to someone else. Here's a picture of the ribbon and the quilt.

    That is striking, you deserved that ribbon, for sure. Please tell us if you got any comments. I am trying to work up the nerve to enter a few myself.

    My thought is to go ahead and enter one your quilts. You never know how good it is until you do and it really is a nice surprise to see what the judge or others think of it. Sometimes I enter one to just to get the judges critique. I think that has made me a better quilter. I like to get an experts opinion.

    You could always tell the "someone else" that it is promised to that you can't give it up now that it is a ribbon winner and you would happily make them another quilt. I hope they would understand!

    Thank you all for looking. I haven't received any feedback yet, but I believe that is forthcoming. I did this as a learning experience, and it certainly was. I'm already planning something for the next show, which, luckily, isn't for two more years!
