Paducah Acceptance

I was very excited to hear today that my quilt Squared Up has been accepted into Paducah. It was quilted brilliantly by Nic Bridges and is still my favourite quilt at the moment so I am very pleased that it will get to travel across the sea to Paducah.
Having checked out the list of other semi-finalists I am thrilled to be in such brilliant company including many friends.

I have to thank Jamie Fingal who helped me beat the tyranny of distance and time for the entry form. The internet is a wonderful thing but these friendships created by it are priceless.

WOOOHOOOO!!!! And since I'm teaching there, I'd be happy to do a stand in for you and take pics!!!!! Best of all, I'll be joining you, as my Koi quilt got in (THANK YOU for posting the link... I'm in California and had no idea the results were out, so was able to hit your hotlink and go find the happy news!).

Here's to both of us winning ribbons... ya think? Gotta run. Time for bed.... we are the hotel and I am stressed beyond bearing some moments.... it has been difficult with Ma, but I think (and hope) that today--the first day of the packing--was the worst and that all we need to do now is endure until we get to Maine. More when I'm home.

MAJOR congrats and can't wait to see your beauty in the cloth!

Cheers, Sarah

Well done and richly deserved too!
Great to see the Aussies doing so well on the world stage. Now I'll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed hoping for a prize winning ribbon too!
Hooroo,

That is such a brilliant quilt. Great colours, interesting geometrics, and obviously great quilting too.
