I quilted this quilt not too long ago for my friend, Nancy, that lives in North Carolina. I showed it here on the blog after I finished, but will post it again to refresh your memory:
Nancy called me today to let me know that it earned a blue ribbon and a best machine ribbon in her Burke County Guild show. Woo-hoo! Congrats to Nancy and I! But here is the funny part, they placed it into the “Digital” quilted category, it appears as a computerized quilted quilt. LOL!! My work is hand guided-similar to drawing with a pencil on paper. No computer machine here.
Now, there is nothing wrong with well done computer quilting, by the way. In fact, if I had an extra 10-15k lying around I might even buy one.
I guess that is, in its own way, praise. Anyway, I am happy for Nancy, who is a lovely person, and I love to quilt for her. That is where my joy comes from- quilting for someone who appreciates what you do.
Any thoughts, dear blog readers??
