    Hey guys!! Been a while since I have posted, but do read the forum quite a bit!
    I tend to love contests, I don't win very many of them, but it is fun to enter and see what happens.
    I designed a few blocks for the Accuquilt Barn Quilt contest and one of them has really been popular. It is in fourth place right now and I would love for it to stay in the top five until the end!! Any votes would be greatly appreciated. The link above will take you to the block. "Point Of View" is what I named it--read the description under the block for the story behind the designing.
     
     
     
     
     
    Thanks so much.

    If you are wanting the painted floor look. Check out Armstrong's Painted Pine White Washed Luxury Vinyl Flooring Planks. I just put them in my studio and love the shabby chic look they give.

    Go to the Mancuso website. Click on the Pacific Show. Then click on the 2013 quilt awards list. It will take you to another page that has a red "click here for awards" near the bottom left of that page. It is a little tricky.
    If you made Promises Kept, I congratulate you on a Honorable Mention! This is a really competitive show....and international, too! I count any ribbon here a big win.

    I will have to keep an eye on the site to see your quilt once they get pictures up! It is cool to know another Iowa farm girl made it at the big city quilt show!

    TerriVB reacted to JenniferBernard in Good finish to my garment competition year!   
    I found the results for the Pacific International Quilt Festival and I won a 2nd on my orange outfit and a 3rd on my teal jacket. This show has the largest monetary awards for clothing and really tough competition. I feel very honored to have won.
    It is also very interesting that Linda Thiefoldt (a really good and nice quilter) and I were in the same category using the same jacket pattern (I made my jacket first)! I received a 3rd and she received a Judge's Choice. However her jacket beat my orange outfit at MQS. Competition is just so mind boggling sometimes!
    My red sparkly jacket will be hanging in Houston very soon. A very nice ending to my competition year!

    TerriVB reacted to Shar Schmutz in Another Quilting Customer Story (long)   
    You may remember, I posted about my Drop in and Drop Off Party when I got back from Arizona for the winter...one customer brought seven quilts that day and told me she had three or four more. Mind you, this lady is in her 80's! I asked if she was chained to her machine all winter! She is not frail but was in a horrible auto accident in 1980. Her pelvis, hip and most other bones were not just broke big shattered. She had to be cut out of the car. She was told she could never walk again, she proved all the doctors wrong but she is a little unsteady on her feet and walks with a cane that has "arms" at the bottom. I am always worried about her coming over and have offered to pick up and drop off for her at her home, but she is independent and would not hear of it, so I just started delivering by telling her I was on my way to town and might as well stop by.
    I called her house to let her know the first three of her quilts were ready and I was dropping them off on my way to town, her husband answers the phone and says oh. I guess you didn't hear what happened.... My heart sank, I love this lady she is just so refreshing and fun to be with. I start telling him I was so sorry and he says oh no she is not dead she just fell and broke her femur just above the knee and the bad thing is that it is her good leg. It happened in their garage and she was wedged between the car and cabinets so it took paramedics a long while to get her out, in the mean time her daughter was called who is a nurse and she rode to the hospital with her in the ambulance.
    Later her daughter was telling me her mother was so worried about getting her quilts done it was all she could talk about in the ambulance and before surgery! Now that is a quilter!!!!
    She is in a rehab hospital and must remain non weight bearing on the leg for 3 to 4 months, her husband asked me to visit and talk quilts to get her mind off therapy and boredom. She was still fretting about getting them all done so I offered to sew on the bindings so she can hand stitch while she is confined. She beams when I show up looking like the bag lady lugging quilts, she had her daughter get the rest of her completed tops to me along with their made bindings or the fabric for them.
    I have been making bindings and sewing bindings it seems nonstop! Last Thursday was their 60th wedding Anniversery! I took a card and flowers to them, he visits every day without fail lugging his oxygen tank along with him. I am quickly running out of her finished quilts and will have to come up with something else for her to do soon! Gotta love her!!!

    OK Angela!!  Today I have two IQ's running, one CQ, and Quilt Path running all at once...maybe I should put my embroidery unit on my Bernina and start something there too?!?!  (Yes, people, I have an employee here today helping me keep all this going...I am not challenging Mickey Mouse!!)

    TerriVB reacted to chickenscratch in My mother's day gifts from my 21 year old son   
    Wow, I'm shocked. The only kid to acknowledge mother's day was the youngest who is almost 21 and in LOVE!!!!  (said very sarcastically)
     
    Well, he strolls in with a roll of batting over one shoulder and a Joann fabric bag in the other hand.
     
    He bought me 3 yards of 90 inch warm and white on a roll  and a yard and 1/2 of wood grain fabric so I can make my spools scrap quilt.  How's that for thoughtful?  Wonders never cease.
