Wonderful Day

What an amazing start to the Brisbane Show. I had been contacted to say I had won a prize so was very excited this morning as the Show opened. Imagine my surprise when my name was announced with a second prize for Squared Up in the commercially quilted category (quilted by Nic Bridges of course). Then first prize announced Nic with her quilt Crossroads. What a team.
Sheer Magic also received a 3rd prize which was terrific as well but the biggest thrill was having Squared Up awarded Best Use of Colour. It is an award that I have always coveted as colour is my main inspiration so to win this has really made my day/week/year.
Here it is again just to remind you of what it looks like but it now looks better with two ribbons on it.

Met lots of lovely people at the stand as well so a great but very exhausting day.

Link to all the winners has just been posted - check them out.
