I Won a Prize!

Hello dear blogging friends
This past weekend my quilt guild had their annual show and I won a second place ribbon in the large pieced category! Usually I like to design my own quilts, but this Karen Stone pattern was so great I just had to make it. It is paper pieced, and machine quilted. For those of you non quilters, paper piecing is a way to make the points very accurate in an easy way. I named this quilt Star in a Midnight Sky and it measures 60" x60". I couldn't get the right light to show it off as well as I'd like, so this is the best photo I could get. The color looks a bit paler than the real thing.
Hope you have a good Monday.

    So happy you won! I can do some quilting and getting all those points just right can be tough! But good for you, you did it! You go, girl!


  4. Oh wow, congratulations Rhondi!!

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for leaving such sweet comments! Please check back as often as you like. I know that Mind your own business is more frequently called Baby's tears (or even Angel's tears, I believe) but for the obvious reasons I find that name rather scary and prefer the quirky Mind your own business ;-)

    Take care!

  5. Congratulations! Such a beautiful quilt.

    Thanks for stopping by my spot!

    p.s. Like the Michael Buble version of "What a Wonderful World"!

  6. Congratulations, it is beautiful.

  7. WooHoo Rhondi! Congratulations on your win! That is one colorfilled quilt. Do you use it on a bed? It must have really felt wonderful to see that ribbon hanging there. Do you have regular get togethers with other quilters?

    Hope you have a really wonderful Monday!

    Hugs ~
