Award Winning Quilt

I'm just recovering from the shock of excitement. I'm so happy to share with you the good news I got last Friday: My quilt called " In the day of the death: La Catrina de Jose Guadalupe Posada" won 3rd place at the International Expo Patchwork & Quilt Puebla 2013, in their contest themed "Mexican Traditional Holidays".

The quilt show was held at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Puebla, Mexico, on September 26th to the 29th. Out of the 14 finalist quilts, mine received 3rd place and I won a Janome 7700 sewing machine! (Such a great coincidence because Suzzie's Quilt Shop in Manassas, where I am a formal quilting instructor, is a Janome distributor).

The top three quilts will be traveling to the International Quilt and Craft Festival in Ireland this coming June... isn't that great?     As I mentioned, the quilt show took place in Mexico...

but unfortunately I wasn't able to attend. Big hugs and "Thank You's" to Gustavo Hernandez and Ruth Ruiz who attended the entire show as my representatives. They did a video-chat with me so I was able to be "present" for the ribbons ceremony.
Thank you also to the quilt show organizers and to Janome Mexico Latin-America for my prize.

I always say in my classes that quilting began as a hobby. But now, more than ever, it is a passion. I'm so excited I can't stop smiling. 3rd place is pretty good, don't' you think?
