June was a big month for me.
It started with a workshop called “Strippy Scrappy” making the blocks and joining them together using a “Quilt as you go” technique, there were some gorgeous results.
Later in June came the Sydney Quilt and Craft Show.
I entered a quilt I made called “Sisters”. The fabrics that I used were given to me by two of my sisters, Annette and Sue, which they purchased in Japan while on a quilting tour.
On the Sunday night prior to the quilt show I received and email. This was telling me that I had won a prize, but not what the prize was. Would I be able to be in Sydney on Wednesday for the presentation – of course I was going to be there. Before I went to bed that night I had booked flights to Sydney and back for Wednesday.
At the presentation I was awarded 2nd place in the Pieced Quilt Professional category and I was over the moon.
That’s it for today, tomorrow I’ll tell you about the rest of June and beyond.
