So...... I never win anything. My friends encouraged me to enter one of my quilts in the Austin Quilt Show this year. I have never entered any of my work before, so this is a first. My quilt is titled 'Bountiful Harvest' and is a Baltimore Album style using block patterns from several sources. Each block represents a part of my life or family member. I expecially liked working on the center block, a Texas flower basket. This basket represents the center of my life, Texas, where I was born. I have lived in other countries, but my heart lives in Texas. I don't expect to win anything, but it is exciting to share my quilt with the community. But.......I woke up this morning to find that I have won a hand cranked ice cream maker on the Tasha Tudor blog, http://www.rookeryramblings.blogspot.com/ . That's right.... now I can't say I never win anything. Enjoy my quilt , even if you can't make it to the show.
