I did not win any prizes but it is something to have your quilt completed in time and on display - that is a reward in-itself.
The show was amazing. Many wonderful entries and at all skill levels. I find this quote by Henry Van Dyke, so inspiring: Use what talents you posses; the woods would be very silent, if no birds sang there except those that sang best.”
We would not have much of a quilt show either, if people thought there quilt wasn’t good enough to enter.
So do what you enjoy - you will be an inspiration to someone. Happy Quilting!
