The verdict is in..."All Around the Town" takes a 3rd place ribbon in the "Wall Quilt: Hand Quilted" category at the AQS International Quilt Show in Lancaster, PA. Yee-haw!
The show opens this morning and the winners were supposed to be available by 8:40 AM online. I have not located them yet. I actually got a nice phone call late yesterday afternoon...that is the witching hour in our house for robo-calls and unknown people selling stuff and asking for money.
I did not recognize the phone number and ALMOST DIDN'T PICK UP! I'm glad I did, because it was a courtesy call letting me know about my quilt taking a prize. Andrea of AQS wanted to know if and when I was coming to the show to set up some sort of interview (???). Then came the blood-curdling scream as I hung up...
I will be at the show on Friday...anyone else going on Friday??
To celebrate, let's have a give-away! It's been way too long since we did that. I have two beautiful, brand-spanking-new Downtown Abbey T-shirts, both are red and size 2X (I thought they might shrink a little...).
1) You have to be (or become) a follower of Fabric Therapy to participate.
2) You have to tell us who your favorite Downton Abbey character is and why (if you have not watched Downton yet, just pick a good, British, uppercrusty name, and make up a reason you just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that person...).
3) Your comment must be time and date-stamped BEFORE midnight EST Friday night, March 15. I will post winners on Monday.
Have a great weekend and maybe I will bump into you at the Lancaster show...I will be the tall, large woman with a #@*&-eating grin on my face...
