Robert Kaufman Quilt Quest

This contest also had a division for art bags, naturally made with Kaufman Fabrics. I entered a smocked bag I called "Starry, Starry Night" and crossed my fingers. While I didn't place in the top three, I got notified of the following:

"Congratulations, your 2008 entry has been selected to travel in the Quilt Quest 2008 Collection." .......yada yada............They have selected a group, I believe 30 if memory serves me, of quilts, bags, and miniatures to tour the country. To say I am excited about this recognition is an understatement!

This group will be traveling to the big Sewing Expos and then some. So if you are planning to visit any of them check out this link to the dates and places to see the exhibit. There will be photos of the winners up after Oct first. It was really fun competing in this contest. I am hoping for some sort of critique but am not sure any will be offered. I believe I will definitely enter next year but will go about deciding on fabric a little differently. Now, to gloat some more............


I have been missing in action for a bit. DH and I had a wonderful visit from our DD, DSIL, the angelic twins, and our special grandson Graham. Yes, they are all special! DD#2 will be coming up with her brood on the Columbus weekend and we can't wait to see our other special little ones then.
Anyhoo, we drove to Lake Placid, quite close to home here, and then to the top of Whiteface Mountain. I will leave you with a pic of Graham and Grandma Bunbun sitting on the summit.

And here's one with Lake Placid behind Graham. The Adirondacks are truly beautiful, and this comes from someone who lived in New Hampshire for many, many years.


  1. Congratulations on your bag. I checked and the Road To California quilt show is only 15 minutes away from me. Now I have an excuse to go, but I have to wait until January. You deserve to gloat, I bet it's beautiful like everything else you do.

  2. Way cool! Congratulations! And so deserving as well. Love the Starry bag.

  3. Thanks, Birgitte. Greatly appreciated.

  4. Congratulations, Bunny! Very deserved recognition. And I love the photos of you and Graham.

  5. Congratulations on the quilt show admission! That is wonderful. I'm so glad your gorgeous bag is going to get the wider exposure it deserves. It was simply stunning.


  6. Congrats- how exciting! I have submitted the paperwork to in the Road2Ca show, so maybe we'll both have pieces on display there. Very pretty pictures - I almost thought those were in NH.

  7. That is just so wonderful about your bag! How exciting. I tagged you for a meme about yourself. If you would like to participate please visit my blog. Have a great day.

  8. Yaaayyyyy! Congrats, Bunny! I'm so happy for you! I wish it was coming to my expo (this Sat.), but I guess not.
    Tag, your it! The rules of the game are at my blog... have fun!

I fell in love with Vogue 1642 the minute I saw it. It had that casual but stylish vibe that I am constantly searching for lately. Activ...
