We Have a Winner!

Members of the ABQ MQG have been very busy this fall winning awards and we want to recognize their beautiful quilts and hard work.

Afton Warrick won the Quilters Newsletter Celebrate 45 Years of Quilting Challenge.  She had to create a 45″ x 45″ quilt.  She titled her entry “XLV”.  She was the grand prize winner and the prize pack included a 750 Bernina as well as some other goodies.  All sixteen finalist quilts will be featured in the December/January 2015 issue of Quilters Newsletter.  For more info, link up to Afton at her blog http://quiltingmod.blogspot.com/

We also had some winners at the New Mexico State Fair.

Renee Hoffman entered three quilts.  Her Tardis quilt won 1st place, Her Fuck Cancer quilt won 2nd and her Snowflake quilt won 3rd.  (As a side note, it really gets under my skin when people sensor art.  Renee’s Fuck Cancer quilt really had a powerful message and I’m disappointed someone decided to cover up part of her art work.  To see the uncensored version, link up to Renee’s blog at http://www.quiltsofafeather.com.)
