I'm so glad I was paying attention yesterday before I deleted all the mail in my spam folder, as there was a very exciting email from Amy Ellis of the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I had forgotten about the voting part of the festival and was very surprised to find out that my version of the APQ's Go 4 It QAL, which was in the April 2015 of American Patchwork & Quilting, was awarded a prize... oh my goodness...I'm a winner... I'm a winner... (oh no that sounds a bit like Sally Fields "you like me speech) ...well my quilt is a winner...
The top vote getter in the category which you can see here, was also a Viewer's Choice winner. It is a wonderful version of the Jen Kingwell's "My Small World" quilt which Cindy Weins interpreted as "A Day at Disneyland". It is a quilt after my own heart using lots and lots of novelty fabrics. Definitely check it out... a feast for the eyes.
My quilt was the runner up in the category but since Cindy's quilt also won a Viewer's Choice award I was made the winner in this category... and it made my day...heck it made my whole week...LOL! Thank you to everyone who voted for my quilt. You showed it more attention than I did... with my typical ADD behavior, I had totally forgotten the voting part of the festival and didn't think to mention it here on the blog. I'm just happy that the quilt turned out as I envisioned and playing with lots of low volume novelty prints was so much fun...another way to work in interesting things to look at that you don't see at first glance which I will use again.
Thank you all for voting for my quilt... my prize package includes fat eighth bundle from Moda Fabrics... oooooohhhh... I can't wait to see what I get.
