My Prize-Winning Quilt

I've always wanted to say that. lol. And my quilt did win a prize - but not for the quilting or the design - just for being the first one finished. But, hey, it's still a prize winner. lol.

Here's the quilt:

It's my snowman quilt made from blocks from an online group swap. I backed it with a fleece sheet, birthed it and tied it. The blocks are so pretty and diverse that I didn't want to take away from them with a bunch of quilting. It's so cuddly and warm and since the blocks were made by my close friends it's like a loving hug.

And the prize! When the girl who organized the swap emailed me about the prize I had honestly forgotten she even mentioned there being a prize for the first project completed.

The prize was a Christmas tablerunner. It arrived today in the mail and I simply love it.

Thanks Joyce for organizing the swap and for the great prize.

Until next time, hugs and stitches. Jody
