I Am Still Dazed

Purple Star Quilt Pattern

I was running errands yesterday when I came home and saw emails from my friends in my mailbox about the Pantone Quilt Challange.  I was completely clueless as I went through the emails that talked about my having won.  Right after that I saw the wonderful email from Anne telling me that I not only won but got first place!!

2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge

I made the quilt for my little kitty cat and entered it in the Pantone Quilt Challenge to share with others and have a little fun.  Two very nice ladies – Adrianne @ On The Windy Side and Anne @ Play Crafts arranged this fabulous event!  That’s a lot of hard work, believe me!  There were some seriously beautiful quilts entered in the challenge, and not for one moment had I thought that I had any chance of winning.  I was already very happy with all the wonderful comments I received on that quilt.

I entered mine in the Finished minis category which was judged by Elizabeth Dackson @ Don’t Call Me Betsy.   Now I get to have fun shopping at Fat Quarter Shop, one of my favorite online quilt stores. Thank you all so very much for everything, you have no idea how much this means to me.  You have made me an extremely happy camper!!

Thank you!!
