Happy dance!!!

I just found out that my"No Bake Applique" potholder quilt won 2nd place in the traditional applique category at Road to California. I wish I was there with it! It was great to see the judge's comments.

Good variation in background colors and good color placement throughout.
Fun to see a potholder quilt.
Construction is very well done.
Very good applique technique.
Extremely fine hand quilting stitch.


I especially liked the comment: Fun to see a potholder quilt. It has been interesting to see people's reactions to this historic method. 

Whoop - whoop!

    1. Sherrill, check out some of my older posts to see some explanations of what a potholder quilt is. It is a method that was quite popular in Maine in the mid 19th century
