Teri and I just returned from Houston Quilt Market. As usual the quilts in their contest are wonderful.
Two of our faculty members and our Featured Artist for January, 2009 were winners. We would like to congratulate them for their beautiful work.
The $2000 Future of Quilting Award was won by Gina Perkes for her quilt “Silken Defiance.”
Gina is our long arm teacher this year.
Gina also won Honorable Mention in the Wearable Art Division for “Teal Elegance.”
Patt Blair from Mt Baldy, California is the Featured Artist at Road this year and she won a Third Place in the Art Painted Surface Category for her quilt “Windsong.”
Pamela Allen of Canada won Honorable Mention in the Art-Whimsical Division for “Three Guinea Fowl.”
