So Proud

Sunset

I'm away learning new stuff for my day job, but I am just stopping in here to let you know that Sunset has won first place in the Modern Wall and Bed Quilt category at Quilt Canada 2014 in the National Juried Show. You can see all the beautiful quilts that are the winners on the Canadian Quilter's Association web page here.

I am so honoured and proud that Sunset was chosen for this award. Thank you all for your encouragement while I was  making her last winter and for your ongoing encouragement as I continue to explore this series that I call the cycles quilts.

And thank you to all of you who have already shared a congratulatory message with me on instagram, you all made my day yesterday.

Best,

Leanne

  39. Just wanted to say I saw your quilt at Quilt Canada today. Amazing! I didn't realize until I saw it up close that the subtle colour variations were from the quilting lines. It really is a beautiful quilt and well deserving of the red ribbon. I felt so inspired seeing all the modern and traditional quilts - so much talent on display! stuffimadethisweek.blogspot.ca.
