Tuning Fork #11 won 1st place in Art-Abstract, Large in Houston!

 I just got home from International Quilt Festival in Houston.  I'm simultaneously exhausted and exhilarated.  I was thrilled just to get two quilts juried into the "big" quilt show, but I am over the moon about winning first place with TF #11!
I of course had to pose with it!
I will write more about my adventures in Houston when I've had time to process the experience. What a wonderful week!

Congratulations! It is indeed an honor to get a quilt in that big show but to win is a very big bonus. I love this quilt and am glad the judges did too!

Heather, you look adorable standing beside your quilt! And the quilt is to borrow the words of a teacher we know--an absolute knock out. Congrats to a very deserving artist.

Thanks, Maria! I enjoyed seeing you in Houston!

Congratulations, Heather! I knew that quilt is a winner even if it didn't get a prize. If it hadn't, I would've really questioned the judges! I'm jumping with joy for you!

I knew that you were going to win. I love that quilt, as I've told you before. I was looking froward to meeting you in Houston and was sorry to have missed you
Norma, third place in your category.

Congratulations, Heather. It was a pleasure to meet you in Houston. And your "Tuning Fork" is very deserving of that blue ribbon.
