3rd Place! Modern Quilts Unlimited contest


I received some wonderful news a few days ago. One of my quilt block designs placed 3rd in the Modern Quilts Unlimited magazine modern block challenge. I am so excited!

I’ve never entered any quilt show or contest before, so I tried not to get my hopes up. When the publisher called to say I had placed third, I was ecstatic. They announced all the finalists names on Facebook on August 15th: www.facebook.com/ModernQuilts

The magazine, which is a sister publication to the wonderful Modern Quilting Unlimited, will publish photos of the 12 finalists’ blocks in the September issue. The top 3 finishers (including little ‘ol me!) will have their quilts published in an upcoming edition of the magazine, so I’m not sure if our blocks will be shown in the September edition. 

My quilt will appear in the April ’14 edition of the magazine. I am busy selecting the best fabric to use so I can get started. 

I am sorry I cannot show you the block design they selected, or it would disqualify my entry. Suffice it to say that I did not submit a basic nine-patch design. 🙂

I will keep you posted as I travel along this new journey. Thank you for sharing it with me!
