Doing a happy dance!!

I am grinning again!!  I just got an email letting me know that "In the Spotlight" won a 2nd place ribbon at the 25th Annual Northeast Quilts Unlimited Exhibit.

This is the first time I have entered this competition.   It is sponsored by View Arts, at the Arts Center in Old Forge, NY.  This is not a typical show, instead it is a 2 month quilt exhibit held at the Arts Center.  Info from their website states:  "The quilts are hung gallery style and include quilts from all over the United States.  This competitive exhibit features both traditional and eclectic quilts and wall hangings.  Over $1,800 in cash and prizes are awarded."  The exhibit runs from October 8th to November 30th, with an opening reception on the 8th.

Thanks go to my friend, Claire Oehler (who owned the Country Quilter in Somers, NY before retiring), for letting me know about the exhibit!

P.S.  This is the 3rd ribbon for this quilt :-).  It won second place ribbons in both the Empire Quilters Show, in NYC in March and the Northern Stars Show in Somers, NY this year.

Congratulations! It is a wonderful, vibrant piece of work. I can only hope that one day I will be able to make a competition winning quilt.
