My original bag took FIRST place at the Desert Quilters Guild of Nevada's annual quilt show 2011!!
This is my 1st ever submission of any kind! It's also the 1st bag I've EVER made!!

There is an added sweetness to this win~ I showed the bag to a gal who is one of the owners of my favorite local quilt shop. I was very excited about my latest creation & wanted to show it off. She said it was "OK," as she made a face that said she didn't like it. Lesson learned honey, don't knock others because of your own jealousy! There is room for ALL of us to create together :)

The blue ribbon is HUGE. I am completely overwhelmed!

Sorry, I can't seem to get the blog editor to upload this picture correctly. It's saved straight, but sideways here

This month I tried my hand at paper piecing! I used a tutorial by Pink Penguin for the lucky teapot shape.

The little cups & mugs I designed & just free pieced. Ok, that's not technically paper-piecing, but it's the same concept ;)
