A Winner.....

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.
