OH MY GOLLY!!!



I recently entered my Double Denim Wedding Ring quilt in the NYC Metro Mod Double Wedding Ring Quilt Challenge.

And I've just found out Darlene Zimmerman chose my quilt as her Judge's Choice Winner.  
Oh My Golly Gumboots, I nearly fell off my chair!!  This is such an honour!!!!!

I think I'm actually a bit speechless. I'll just keep pinching myself to make sure it's not a dream.

In the meantime pop over to the NYC Metro Mod Blog to see all the amazing winning quilts.
