How exciting is this! I'm the winner!!!

Thank you everyone who voted for my quilts in the Bloggers' Quilt Festival.  Not only did both of my entries win their categories, but I also won Viewers' Choice with my la passacaglia quilt!!



I'm slightly stunned, but very thrilled too.  Thank you to you all for your support and votes, and all the lovely comments left on my blog.


I was hoping that la passacaglia would do well, but I certainly didn't expect to win the Small Quilts section with my Honeycomb Spin. I guess people liked it because it had different design techniques - the hexagons were glued on and then quilted in a spiral pattern. Credit must go to Anna Hicks of Nancy's Stitch Studio who taught me this pattern in a class.



Amy has a fair method of sharing the prizes around, so I will only receive the prize for Viewers' Choice. (I will show you the loot when it arrives.) The good thing about Amy's policy is that my online friend Maryse from Canada will receive the prize in the Hand Quilting category for her beautiful Anna Maria Horner Dresden Plate quilt - click here to see it. 

You can find links to all the winners here on Amy's blog. Again kind friends, thank you so much for voting for my quilts.
