I'm so excited!

Our local quilt show opened today and will be open through Sunday. This year's show judge was really good to me, as I won three ribbons! Wow! I'm thrilled! Here are my "babies" with their fancy additions:

Some time ago I made a Baravelle Spiral quilt from a pattern designed by a very good online friend, Pat Storey. Her book is Geometrical Quilts. I used her pattern to make a quilt for our guild challenge that year; we had to use specific black and white prints, as well as any other blacks and whites and only one other color. We also had to add beading. This is what I made, and it took a third place ribbon in our show! :)

My miniature Trip Around the World (about 21" square) is next on the list. I made this one after a very good friend gave me a set of strips of batiks. I love the colors in it, and apparently the judge didn't hate them, as she awarded it a second place ribbon. :)

Last, but best of all, is my Winding Ways quilt. I've been waiting for the show so as to hope for the chance to take a photo of the whole finished quilt (remember this post?). I certainly had my chance today, as one of our members who was acting as a white-glove lady kindly held some other quilts out of the way while I snapped a quick photo. You can just barely see the edge of the first-place ribbon that's hanging with this one! I'm so pleased, especially since my friend Gerda did such a great job of quilting this big quilt for me. :D 


  1. Congratulations! Well deserved wins. Your winding ways turned out beautifully.
    You must be "high on quilting" right about now!

  2. Congrats Sandy! Those are well-deserved ribbons. I'm so glad to see a picture of the entire Winding Ways quilt - it's beautiful!

  3. As I've always said - you do such beautiful work. Congratulations on the ribbons and very exciting for 1st place on Winding Ways!

  4. How exciting to win not just one ribbon but three! All are beautiful but I especially love the Baravelle spiral. May have to put this one on my list.

  5. Congratulations! Your ribbons are well deserved! Love your guilds idea of the buttons too, those are adorable.

  6. Congratulations Sandy,

    They are all lovely and you should be very proud of your wins!

    Here is to continuing success!

  7. Hi! I saw your Winding Ways quilt at the show and I LOVED it! In fact, I never liked the pattern that well until I saw what you did with it! It was stunning! Congrats on all those ribbons! Good for you!
