I entered five quilts, four of which were original patterns incorporating hand quilting, hand embroidery, and hand appliqué. When I arrived a friend told me I had won a ribbon! I never win ribbons.
Which quilt was it? Little Women, my hand appliquéd and hand quilted version of the 1952 pattern by Marion Cheever Whiteside Newton?
My original take on Princess Feather, also hand appliquéd and hand quilted?
Or my original story book quilt based on Pride and Prejudice, hand appliquéd and hand quilted?
It was Gridlock and it won "Most Humerous!" That is a real "boner".
Gridlock was the name of the Giddyup block I received in an exchange with Dustin Cecil who I met on Flickr while we were making the Austen Family Album quilt with Barbara Brackman.
I set the block with items from my political handkerchief collection and two 1952 linen towels with funny political sayings.
