2nd Place Award in Art Exhibit

Good things sometimes happen when you least expect it! On a lark I entered a quilt in a local art show, the Artist League Annual Salon at the Florida State University Gallery- Tallahassee, Fl.

The piece is called Lifeline and I had designed it a few years ago, after a year long hiatus from creating art. It represented my "lifeline" into making quilts again. Not sure why but I had never entered into into any venue until this one came around.

But much to my surprise it won 2nd place. And, it was judged against all types of art -- sculpture, painting, etc.....


  1. Congratulations - wonderful quilt! That life line really calls to me. Maybe it's the brilliant blue against the neutrals? Or the meandering path it travels? I don't know, except that I think it's a winner!

  2. Great piece- quite a accomplishment!

  3. Thank you so much everyone!


  4. Yay! Congratulations Valerie!

    Stay inspired!

  5. Congratulations! It's a wonderful quilt - well deserved. I love browsing your blog, your quilts are so unique. Thanks for sharing!
