Uau Claudia,

you are fast! even though you are so tired....

hope you recover soon....and be ready for more quilting.

I?m trying to post a pic of my quilt, in which I incorporated some subjects related to the "Golden Ratio" , a theme that has been fascinating me for a while... therefore the pentagon shape.

It was great to be on the show, I enjoyed it sooooooooooo much.

The black and white piano key design mixed with monochromatic strips is striking. Then you went one step further with embellishments to enhance your swirls. Very beautiful choices and execution.

The pentagon shape is really exciting and the blue on blue whole cloth look really gives an exciting palette for the shapes, the violin being my favorite. Those swirls in the background remind me of McTavishing and blend well with the music theme of that section, like notes floating.

Loved the sampler of stitching in the black area amid the colorful squares. You should get lots of customers with that quilt since so many will want their creations to look this lovely.

It's interesting to note that all three big ribbons went to APQS artists. Congratulations.
