"Pi" wins prize at HMQS contest!

The phone call came yesterday.
"Will you be attending the Opening Day Awards Ceremony?" said the voice on the other end. (Wish I could have said, "Yes—I'll be there!")

She couldn't divulge any more info on the phone at the time, but the Awards Ceremony has concluded and the results from the HMQS—Home Machine Quilting Show are now official. Congratulations to my quilt, "Pi E2 [Exponentially Embellished]," on receiving the 3rd Place award in the Conventional Machine category.

Here are detailed views of the free-motion quilting and decorative stitching on the appliqué.

Just for grins, I checked flights from Chattanooga to Salt Lake City. The best price was $506, but I would have had to book it, pack, and get to the airport within 35 minutes. Guess I'll have to plan better for next year.
