I won second place, and a $75 dollar gift card to Safeway.
When they announced my name, I couldn't stop smiling. My face hurt from smiling so hard.
I felt that way today, when I got an e-mail that said my quilt had been picked as a winner for the first Project Modern Challenge.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I think that the picture is funny though, because I can't quite understand how all those hands are there. If you look at the right side, there are three hands, and one on the left. What's up with that?

As for the quilt itself, I did some things I said I would never do. I ripped quilting out after I started. I told myself I'd never bother with that, but it was just too dense for me. It was only in the blue sections, but I felt a lot better after I'd done it.
