You remember my quilt, Orion Odyssey? I made it to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Naval aviation. It's part of the Thread Tails and Vapor Trails exhibit that is traveling all around the country this year. In fact, I won an Honorable Mention in the applique category.
Imagine my extreme delight when two boxes of prizes arrived in the mail! Check this out!
A box of 100 fat quarters from Robert Kaufmann's line of Kona cotton basics -- all folded and stacked and packaged in a beautiful box! I'll need to stare at them and stroke them for a bit before I can actually use any of them. Also, 10 one yard pieces from the Ambrosia line designed by Amanda Murphy.
Here's my favorite -- the green and purple floral! I wonder if I could some how stretch one yard into a cute little skirt.
But wait! There's more!
I also received 12 packages of crib size bats from Hobbs. Look, they even have the 100th Anniversary of Naval Aviation logo on the package. I think that's pretty cool!
Thanks so much to Robert Kaufman and Hobbs for supporting art quilting and this exciting event. Thanks also to Kelly Gallagher-Abbott Jukebox Quilts for coordinating the exhibit. It's such an impressive undertaking!
All the winners in addition to several more quilts that will be included in the traveling exhibit are on the Navy Quilts website. They are beautifully presented with great images and full descriptions from the makers about the techniques and stories behind the quilts. You really should take a look. I am honored to be included.
