Received news yesterday that not only did my quilt Raconteur - The Storyteller's Collection (that name is too l - o - n - g) win first prize in the bed quilt category but it also won Viewer's Choice.
Yes there is a smile going from one ear to the other. It is now my most successful quilt ever exhibited.

Someone once told me to write the quilt name on the back of a ribbon when I won it. I couldn't figure how hard it would be to work out which quilt belonged to which ribbon when I only had one ribbon. for the first time I can see a reason.... old age forgetfulness :)
