An Award at PNQE

The Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza was this past weekend, and I'm pleased to say that my Wood Poppy won a "Best Use of Color"award. It's particularly gratifying because when I finished this quilt and stepped back to review what I had wrought, my personal opinion of it was that I had got the colors just right. There's nothing extraneous there, and the balance of the elements and colors is just as I had envisioned it. I'm thrilled the judges saw the same thing and chose to recognize it!

I wrote a bit more about making Wood Poppy here.

My time at the show was limited this year, but as always I enjoyed the variety of work displayed. This show hosts quilts from the World Quilt Competition, and it's always interesting to see the what the quiltmaking gestalt abroad is. And congratulations to my friend Diane Doran--her beautiful Under the Rainbow took a third place. The complete list of winners is here.
