On a happy note

Have you seen this post?
 The winners have been announced, so I can uncross my fingers... and do a happy dance!


I'm heading into the weekend with the news that my entry,

was chosen third place in the Tops Only category in the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge.


2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge
Wow.
That's pretty exciting news to take in and is making me all sorts of happy. I will be walking on air for the next few days, no doubt.  Maybe during that time I will sort out how to quilt this top? ;o)



Many thanks to Anne and Adrianne for organizing and working behind the scenes to make such a fun event possible.  Way to go!

 Three cheers to everyone that entered and left us all inspired by their creative use of the colour of the year.  If you're like me, you've been pinning like crazy thanks to all the inspiration. ;o)

Congrats to the respective winners - which leads to many thanks to the judges for their time and willingness to tackle such a task (can't imagine the difficulty in choosing!). 

 Thanks as well, to the sponsors of the challenge for their amazing generosity. 

 Plus, a very special thank you to each of you that took the time to vote in the challenge and for your wonderful comments of support.

That is so exciting! I am very happy for you. If you are looking for ideas... I think straight quilting in the paint chip part, and curved quilting in the sky would be neat. ;)
