Ann's Beautiful Quilt

Back in July of last year I quilted a special quilt for Ann.  I never shared it... yep, I was supposed to wait until February (after its debut show) and well... my brain.  Yep, totally forgot to share the quilt and anything about it.

So here are the pics that you never saw because of my failing memory:

So last month Ann emailed me and let me know her quilt had won Third Place in its very full category at the 2018 Lake County Quilt Guild Show in Mount Dora, FL and also that it was awarded the NACQJ Award of Merit.  Wow, how awesome!  I knew this was a really big deal as I had previously been awarded this same honor on one of my own quilts.  So I congratulated Ann and again, didn't share with any of you.  I'm not so sure I'm adapting to this aging thing... even with all the notes and reminders the brain is totally shutting down -- although, I do have a lot on my plate right now -- blame it on the busy!

So, here is a photo that Ann sent of the quilt hanging at the show:

And the wonderful comments on the Award of Merit paperwork:
And here is a screenshot of the NACQJ Facebook post:

So there is everything I forgot to tell you...

I shared a freebie of the wood grain stitching - you can check it out here:

If you enjoyed the freebie and want to see more of this quilt, as well as videos of a lot more, go ahead and subscribe to my Patreon page ( -- I share a lot of fun stuff.  A video of work on my latest in-process competition piece will be uploaded soon... btw, I can't wait to finish this piece!  Yes, I realize it's just starting, but I'm already looking forward to finishing so that's a good sign!

Okay, enough about that -- here are the detail pics of Kathryn's quilt:
