winner winner, maple syrup dinner!

What? AS EVERYONE KNOWS, breks for dinner is one of the best dinners you can eat.

So, things have been super busy and I’m pretty belated in reporting this, but my challenge quilt won a gold star at the Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival of Quilts!

I was going out of town for work later in the day, but I was able to sneak over to the quilt show right as it opened that morning. There were some really nice quilts in the show, and the challenge quilts were all very different, which was neat.

I just love this 1930s-inspired fabric:

The limited color palette of this quilt is really appealing:

The Spring Fling challenge quilts were all about the same size, which I found interesting. They were required to be 60-100″ in perimeter, but the fact that several of us came up with pretty much the exact same size surprised me.

So, not only did I win a gold star, but I also won some maple syrup and maple candy!

So cool! I feel really pleased to have won a thing on my first try!
