I'm a Winner and a Calendar Girl!




First up: "When Will We Ever Learn: Gulf Coast Summer 2010," AKA "the Pelican quilt" won a third place ribbon today at the Sun Prairie Quilt Show!  

It's the first one for this quilt.  This quilt was part of a show, "Turning Point," by the Madison Contemporary Fiber Artists at the Overture Center in Madison, Wisconsin, during January through April of 2011.  It was displayed at the NQA Show in Columbus, Ohio and at the AQS Show in Des Moines, Iowa last year.




And I'm a calendar girl!  "Pieceful Tigers" is in  Quilt Art 2013 for the week of May 6, 2013!

YaY!!! Now my matching postcard can boast about a ribbon winning relative. I just put it on display in a an acrylic holder last week... It's been on my sewing room wall, but only I see it there!!! If I used a real calendar... I'd order one... but all mine are electronic, or I would miss all my appointments.
