Quilted by Martha Peterson - who I got to meet!!
It won a ribbon, I wasn't surprised.
And yes, I asked her again if she would sell the quilt.
She said no. I don't blame her.
That doesn't mean I won't ask again... :)
Hope you enjoyed the virtual show. Please check the many other blogs with pictures of the quilts in the show. There were many great ones I missed, but I was thrilled with the ones I did see. Congratulations, quiltmakers!!
