More good news…

Hej!
It´s been quiet a while since I last wrote here after my 1.Place in Salt Lake City. Summer was busy and I´m very grateful that it´s over. The part with the forest fires was not fun, but now we have Autumn, Harvest and soon Winter again. Means sewing time 🙂
Lot´s has happened on the quiltfront too 🙂

My Quilt „Rainbow of hope“ (yes the one who won in SLC/Utah) was in Birmingham /UK at Festival of Quilts and got a „highly commended“ – what an honor! It took me two weeks to find it out – by surprise, nobody told me… so it was a late happy dance.

Rainbow of hope at FoQ in Birmingham/UK 2018 „highly commended“

but the success story goes on 🙂
My new show quilt „Masquerade“ got juried in to the MQX show in Illinois/USA already a big deal only this. Now the fingers are crossed for a good outcome in the end of September 🙂 than I will show the quilt officially here 😉

Last weekend I was with Louise – from my Quilters Guild in Mora – in Lidköping. There – every second year – we have Quiltköping – Swedens own and largest Quiltshow.  Competition theme was this year „Linjespel/ line play“
And to my big surprise and happiness I won 1.place traditional category

1.place traditional category, price was a new Bernina 215 🙂
A dream came true!!

Now it´s back to work 🙂 Training with the dogs started already, the garden is nearly done for this year and lots of ideas are waiting to be born to life! I was also asked to teach in Mora next year at our own Quilt exhibition – how cool is that 🙂

A big THANK YOU goes to Walter for all support and always having my back! I love you!!

Happy quilting! 🙂
vi ses,
Simone
