Another MQS ribbon...

Yeah!!! I will never, ever, ever, get sick of hearing those words, nope, not ever!

"Clouds in My Latte" has received a Judge's Choice Award at MQS 2011 (click here for a link to ALL the winners). The Judge that chose my quilt was none other than Linda McCuean... totally awesome!!! Totally! I am on cloud nine once again, I know, it doesn't take much! Really, any ribbon is fantastic, but Judge's Choice is my favorite!!! Here goes my second Thank You to Linda, this means so much!!

Here is "Clouds in My Latte" hanging at MQS with her ribbon. She does look fantastic!

For those of you that don't know, MQS is the Machine Quilters Showcase which is an annual convention/show by the International Machine Quilters Association ( A super big, super loud shout-out to ALL the winners, the quilts are amazing!!!

I must also formally congratulate Lisa Sipes, her awesome quilt "BeDazzleder!" took 2nd Place in the Machine Embroidery category... YEAH!!! And she was also the first to notify my of my ribbon. Here is a peek at her award-winning beauty:

Best of Show went to the totally awesome Claudia Pfeil with her "Magical Mermaids Castle". I have watched little pieces of this quilt as Claudia shared them on facebook, and can't wait to see it in person one day, but until then, I will be amazed by photos.

Thanks again to Lisa for notifying me, and for the pictures too! And yet one more thank you to Linda McCuean... for my awesome ribbon!


  1. congratulations! as always your work never ceases to amaze!

  2. Stupendous Karen!!!!! Huge congrats.

  3. Karen, I loved getting to see your quilt in person! I wish you could've been at the show, but I was more than happy to take pictures for you!
    I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I'd planned, because I was hardly even in the exhibit hall. This year was just exhausting!
    But again, CONGRATULATIONS! You rock!

  4. Yeah!!!! Congratulations, Karen!You are an inspiration with your talent! I always look forward to see what your working on and am very happy for you when you win a ribbon for your hard work!
