Scottish Quilt Championships 2014

As promised I can now reveal what put a spring in my step these last few days. I was told on Thursday that my quilt Born Free had won the Small Wallhangings section at the Scottish Quilt Championships. You can see the piece above with its bright yellow rozette. It's not the best picture as the lighting in the hall in Ingliston isn't great and the quilt was also hanging up quite high.  I promise I will return to tell you all about this quilt one of these days (probably after the 52 Journals exhibition has closed and I have more time). For now I'll just say that I made it as part of the Thistle Quilters Group Chinese Whispers challenge and it was first seen in public at the Loch Lomond Quilt Show earlier this year.
Here is a detail showing the words that gave this piece it's title. 
And then to my delight my other entry called Klimtesque also received two awards, one for winning second place in the Theme section of the show, the theme being Quilted Jewels, and the other one is the Embellishment award. I've won this award various times before in previous years at this show so it was a treat to get it once again. You can read more about Klimtesque here.

I will be back at the 52 Journals exhibition tomorrow at the start of the final week! Hard to believe that it will all be over by the end of next Saturday. Hope to see you there if you haven't been yet!
