    Congratulations, Judy! It’s a wonderful piece.

  18. finestkind!!!!! i made one too, but didn’t enter, just used the guidelines. besides, i wouldn’t have had a chance with yours in the bunch!!

    as for matters of the heart, duct tape works well, for the broken parts. sucks that i have to tell anyone that, but it’s more practical than telling someone ‘this too shall pass’ like you have acne.

  20. Helen Read says:

    Beautiful! and very exciting! congratulations.

  21. Congratulations! I can see why it won! Just beautiful! Also- I picked up an older copy of Quilting Arts (Dec/Jan 2009) and I LOVED your article about dying with RIT. I have also never thought about dying quilt batting before but can’t wait to try! The RIT dyes sound so great because the only place I have to dye is my kitchen. Thanks!

  23. Erilyn says:

    Congratulations! I really love the background of tea bags, then a twist with metal on the bird’s wing. Very clever, you!

  24. Congratulations and well deserved for such a beautiful piece!
