I always feel that having my work accepted for a juried and judged exhibit is reward enough. So I was excited when I learned that my two first-time entries for the La Conner Quilts & Textile Museum exhibit were accepted.
A few days ago I received emails informing me that both pieces were award winners! Award announcements were made at a banquet October 3rd. The list of winners was posted on the museum’s web site today.
Both quilts were entered into the Original Design Realistic Pictorial Wall Quilt category. Forget Me Not, Collaboration with Grandma received the 3rd Place award; (hover your cursor over images for more information)
Nature’s Fractal received an Honorable Mention award.Nature’s Fractal also received an Award of Excellence, the Judge’s Choice award, from Kathie Kerler.
The Festival exhibit ends October 6th, however, all First Place and Award of Excellence winners will remain at the museum for a special exhibit through November 24. I won’t be able to see the exhibit myself so I hope that if you are in the area you’ll stop in and then drop me a note sharing your impressions of the museum and the exhibit.
