Dallas Quilt Show

Wendy and I went over to the Dallas Quilt Celebration today. We had a wonderful time -- we did a little shopping, saw some wonderful friends from Houston (Sharron, Lonnie and Kathleen, it was so good to see you! I'm glad we had a chance to spend a little time together!), and admired the quilt exhibit.

I had entered three quilts in the "Master Art" division, and was very excited to see that Block Study #2 had won an Honorable Mention:

And Syd's quilt, "Procrastination" also won a ribbon. Her grandmother pieced the eight-pointed star blocks, Syd put the quilt together and I quilted it. It was entered in the "Group" category:

I bought some indigo dyed fabric and some silk scraps in a wonderful assortment of colors. I'm feeling inspired -- time to get upstairs and to get to work!
