Are you ready for some exciting news? My yield quilt was chosen as one of the winners of the Project Modern Challenge 1. I was so excited when I received the email yesterday notifying me that I had won. Seriously! I'm really pleased with how the quilt turned out, and it's been such a fun project for me to work on, but to actually win, that's a whole other story!
The judge for this round was Valori Wells, who is such an inspiration, and I'm honored that she liked my quilt. One of these days I'm going to make it to the Sister's Quilt Show, an outdoor quilt festival that her mother started over thirty years ago. I've seen photos from previous years and they are always gorgeous!
I'm working on the pattern for yield, and hope to have it completed in the next few weeks. It will include instructions to make it the same size as the original, and also a baby-size (or possibly wall-hanging size), and a larger sized version as well. I'll keep you posted!
