Looky What I Did!

They say you should "toot your own horn" every now and then so here I go.......Looky!!! I won at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo "Go Texan Quilt Contest"!
This quilt is Bunny Hill's free online BOM a couple of years ago. It is made with both cotton and wool and hand-applique. It was a fun pulling fabrics from my stash and a very fun quilt to make. Each block represents a month of the year. I entered it in the county quilt show and it won the Go Texan Award which qualified it to be displayed at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. I just learned the quilt not only got a first place ribbon but also won Best of Division in the wallhanging category. WOW! I'm so excited! I'm anxious to get the critique sheets from the judges -- you know that's how us quilters learn is hearing from the judges!
