It took four years to completely finish my Roseville Album, but what a thrill it was to receive the ribbon for Best of Show at The Berrien Towne and Country Quilt Guild quilt show today. Hanging under the big purple ribbon is a second ribbon for Honorable Mention in the Bed Quilt category.
One has to drive at least 90 minutes to find Kaffe Fassett fabrics in this part of the Midwest, but my quilt drew so many good questions about the fabric and the designer that I am betting some of the people who attended the show are on line right now seeking patterns and fabric. Donna Kooistra, an AQS certified quilt appraiser, so admires the fabrics, and she loved the quilting, done by Heather Broehm. Thank you, Kim, for your beautiful pattern, and thanks to all of you GA subscribers who have been unfailing in your encouragement along the way.
