On the day it happened, I wrote about Mod Mood winning first place in the group category at QuiltCon. But I wanted to add a sort of "P.S." now that Mod Mood is home.
The fact is, though I've entered several quilt shows before, and actually placed a couple of times, I have always entered my quilts 'for show only.' Ie. Not to be judged. I'm sure it was some insecurity on my part - that seeing my work up close and personal, judges might see my workmanship as less that stellar. But in entering the most recent QuiltCon show, I let 'er rip, so to speak. It felt time to just put myself out there.
So understandably, I was nervous to see what the judges had to say about Mod Mood. But I needn't have worried.
Another 'woo-hoo' moment was seeing the ribbon!
All of QuiltCon's 2016 Award Ribbons were beautifully and thoughtfully made by Nicole/Modern Handcraft.

So that's the rest of the story as they say. And one I'll remember fondly for a long while.
