Correction

Remember when I first blogged about Meredith's challenge quilt and posted the guidelines? Well, Meredith did each of the extra credit points and started with 70 points for the challenge. The judges did not see her curved piecing and thought she was counting the flower applique twice, so they did not allow her the 10 points for the curved piecing. The curved piece is in the middle row top piece and the quilt shop owner saw it as she was hanging the quilt. She quickly recalculated the points and Meredith tied for first!!!

While the quilts were hanging, customers were allowed to vote for their favorite. One guess the winner of the People's Choice Award? You got it, my quilt girl, Meredith.

She has 2 gift certificates to use now and the December challenge has just been announced. I am sure the gift certificates will be spent for this challenge.

Our local museum is having a quilt show in September, Meredith is entering 3 quilts. I am so proud of her.

Thanks again for all the kind comments, Meredith and I appreciate it so much.
