News from the Capital of Texas QuiltFest Fiesta 2014

Hello, it is so good to be blogging again and I am so behind! September was a busy month here in Austin. The Austin Area Quilt Guild held their Capital of Texas QuiltFest Fiesta on September 12-14 at the Palmer Event Center located at 900 Barton Springs. Wow, what an honor to have been accepted as part of the show and to bring home ribbons to boot! This year, Shangrila, my 3 dimensional tryptich placed second in Embellished quilts and also received an award for Best Creativity for Small Quilts. How awesome is that?!!!! Our group called the Austin Art Bee also received many awards for our group quilts. Little Bird created by Kathy York, Sherri Mc Cauley, Connie Hudson and Barb Forrister received an Honorable Mention. While Balancing Act, a group collaboration with Susan Storey Lewis, Kathy York, Leslie Tucker Jenison, Connie Hudson, Sherri Mc Cauley, Frances Holliday Alford and Barb Forrister placed Second and was awarded Best Creativity for Large Quilts.

Additionally, I was so jazzed that Mod 7, a group collaboration with Sherri Mc Cauley, Martha Tshilas, Leslie Tucker Jenison, Kathy York, Connie Hudson, Frances Holliday Alford and Barb Forrister received a special Judges Choice award on it's first time out showing. How awesome is that?!!!! Wow, what an honor! As I mentioned earlier, September was a big month here in Austin. To try and catch up, I will be posting again on Wednesday with news from the Austin Bergstrom Airport. I hope you have enjoyed this post and I look forward to seeing you again, soon! Wishing you all a most creative week!
