Judge's Choice

A certain Twelve -- Helen Conway, to be precise -- is too modest to share her good news, so I will leap in to reveal her happy news.  Her original art quilt, "Brick Road," won a Judge's Choice award at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, UK last month.  Congratulations, Helen!

Well deserved. A wonderful quilt even though I can't read the Arabic -- it's very beautiful to look at.

Congratulations Helen! I enjoyed seeing how this work was created in your videos that can be viewed at http://www.plancreatesucceed.com//?s=Video and see that you have another Brick Lane inspired work in the upcoming SAQA Benefit Auction in the tranche that begins on 23 September.

Hmmm, I shall have to set aside my modesty to declare that actually this quilt won Judges choice at Harrogate not Festival.. A different quilt of mine did win Judges choice at Festival though! Its been a good month!

Oh, shoot. Sorry for getting that wrong. So many awards, so easy to confuse. :-) I'm still just as delighted for you.

So two quilts each got an award? That's double the congratulations then! Well done Helen!
