A Prize For Me and a Prize For You!

Good morning! I'm totally on a post-QuiltCon high today. So many great things happened to me in the past week, I can hardly count them all, but let's start with this:

First place at QuiltCon! : )
My Lifesavers quilt took first place in the Modern Traditionalism, Small Quilts category. To think that this little quilt would rank up there with the other amazing work on display at the show is honestly a dream come true for me. Not only that, but my prize was ... wait for it ... $500. All this from my first quilt show. Wow. It's overwhelming! To see more QuiltCon winners, Leanne has a post up, and Christa has posts here, here, and here.

I'll have a full report on QuiltCon in the next few days, but in the meantime, let's celebrate with a giveaway. How about another copy of Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe? Just comment on this post for a chance to win a copy of the book from Martingale, which includes my Candy Necklace quilt pattern. 


Candy Necklace in the book!
I'll announce the winner on Thursday. In the meantime, have a wonderful week!
