I appreciate the wide range of styles in the winning quilts. Good job judges.

Well, you just made me cry, mostly from Joy! “Peeking In’, all my other finished quilts and studio, was just lost in the horrible Gatlinburg, TN wildfires. It was my best original piece. Seeing this article was the best medicine to get me back to quilting. I am planning a very big shopping trip in Paducah to get me back on track. Thank you so much Betsey for giving me this Christmas gift of publication! Anne-Marie Miro

oh I am so sorry Anne-Marie! Your piece was my instant favorite! It would be such a loss if you didn’t get back into your art! Please let us know how you do rebuilding your studio hon. Best wishes for a very talented lady!! Gentle hugs, Deb Johnson

Fabulous quilts ! Congratulations to all the winners, amazing work.
Condolences to you, Anne-marie, from New Zealand. Life is fragile; hope you and your loved ones are all okay.
Kind regards,
Camilla Watson.
