Wow! This has been a full week. First of all, I heard my quilt Pendragon had won something at AQS Paducah. It turned out it is Third Place in Small Wall Embellishment category. Now, it started out Honorable Mention but the first place winner moved up to one of the top big-money prizes…and it is a beautiful quilt…sew Pendragon moved up to Third Place, which is totally delightful.
Then I heard that Drawing Nigh had won Honorable Mention in small wall quilts at Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza (PNQE).
I have to say, I really liked the judging at PNQE this year. Some of my favorite quilts by some of my quilty friends won top honors. Including Deb Levy’s Atomic Synergy, which was Best of Show,
and Lisa Calle’s A Silver Lining, which won Best Wall Quilt.
Upcoming: Sew Pendragon will also be at AQS Des Moines, Oct 4-7, in case you are going and want to see it. I also have Spiral Galaxy Number 3 that will be at MQX Midwest in Springfield, Illinois Sept 27-30. Right now, I’m working on a new show quilt, a vest and matching tote bag for me, and my books. I also feel I need to get going on a couple of new quilts because I have plans and they have deadlines.
But amid all this delightful news about my own work, my son David’s new book The Merrimack Event, is bouncing around the top 500 of Amazon Kindles overall books and is currently about 50th in the overall Science Fiction on Amazon. It looks to be a winner! If you haven’t gotten yours yet you can find it here by clicking on the picture:
Or you can wait another week or two and get a print copy, which isn’t out yet, but I’ll let you know about it.
Now that things might be getting back to normal this coming week, I will try and talk next weekend about how to take a piece of art you like and turn it, or something that inspires you from it, into a wall art quilt…or something else more fun.
Sew happy everyone! May you have some delightful times in your own life. Blessings!
