A Pleasant Surprise from Boise Basin Quilters 2014 Quilt Show

You could have knocked me over with a feather yesterday when my girl friend texted me with the news that my brown, eight-pointed star quilt, that I call Autumn in Tokyo, received a blue ribbon for the Nita Sale Award for Best Hand Quilted Quilt in the         Boise Basin Quilters 2014 Quilt Show. I also received in the mail today a label for the quilt:                                                IMG_0695

The jury is still out about attaching it to the quilt itself as the quilt was a gift to my dear friend, Cheryl Marshall. I am leaning towards keeping the label and blue ribbon and storing with a series of photos of the quilt, as well as some fabric samples, in a special scrapbook or treasure box.

Here are a few close-ups:


The finished product.



I used the printed Japanese fabric to inspire my quilting motifs.

This is where I got my inspiration to make this quilt.

I am still stunned!
