A blue ribbon day
"Forecast: Scrappy With a Chance of Nine-Patches" was my entry in the GFWC-IL 10th District art contest. (That's General Federation of Women's Clubs.) Members' entries were on display at yesterday's district luncheon.
I won a blue ribbon!
I made the quilt out of orphan blocks in early 2015. This photo shows it prior to quilting. (I did an overall meander in the center and almost-feathers in the border.)
P.S. I won last year, too. I should add that there are only two or three entries in a category so the chances are pretty good to get an award . . . but it's gratifying to get first place.
