The Loving Stitches Award
I could see that each quilt was so different. There weren't many categories, either. Just Best of Show, Best Group, Best Machine and Best Hand Workmanship. It took me about 2 hours to go through 38 quilts. I found my winners. There was no going back. Did I pick the right ones? I don't know. I just let my eye and heart guide me. But that was not the end. The next night they had a Gallery Talk and Walk. Guess who was doing the talking? Right, it was me. I was supposed to walk around to each quilt and comment on that quilt. Oh, My God! I had forgotten that part in my contract.
We walked into the gallery and it was packed. What are all these people doing here? What am I going to say and is it a hostile crowd? They looked nice, but who knows, I have never been to Tennessee.
