We had just walked into the display room when one of my mom's good friends came racing over to us with screams and hugs of CONGRATULATIONS. My mom's beautiful quilt had won....FIRST PLACE and the $500 prize that went with it!!!!!! Of course, Mom would not believe the news until she actually saw it with her own eyes. So we bypassed all the other hanging masterpieces to find hers. And there it was hanging in all its glory....
and attached to its side ever so carefully the prize for all her hard work.
A blue first place ribbon.She deserves it. Look at it...it truly is gorgeous. And Olivia and I were so lucky to be able to share the pure joy of the moment. Congrats Mom....Master Quilter! Olivia said it best.
We are proud of you!
