Sherry, your America Let It Shine quilt is beyond beautiful words! Your vision and message in your quilt for us coming together as a nation became a winning reality for all of us to share with you. When I got a close-up look at "America" on Tues. night at the Winners' Celebration, I was stunned when I saw the thought, talent, perseverance, gorgeous design and workmanship, and love of our country and what it means to be an American that you put into your BOS quilt. You created a show stopper that captivated all of our hearts and rang the Liberty Bell loud and clear. I might also add the Statue of Liberty was very jealous of how great you looked in your sparkly attire for the week! :mrgreen: It was a joy to meet you, and you are as beautiful on the inside as your America Let It Shine quilt is on the outside! Thank you so much for being YOU and sharing your fantastic quilting journey this past year with us. :D

Hugs,
Shirley

uhhhhhh.....THANK YOU ALL SOOOOOO MUCH!!!

I really don't even know how to tell you guys the extreme pleasure it brings me to read your comments, and the heartfelt thanks i want to share back with all of you. You all welcomed me so kindly when i ventured into the blogs, and truly, my world expanded to an area i never dreamed of. The friendships i have made here, mean the world to me!!!

It was a win for all of us!! now, it's someone else's turn to take the limelight--i know each and every one of you has the potential to stand exactly where i did in Houston, that is my wish and that is my hope :)

the past week was filled with so many emotions---from feeling the admiration of fellow quilters to sitting in my room Saturday night crying as i told myself "you did it Sherry, you really, really did it".

Again, thank you all so much!! blog coming soon :)

Sherry

Wow, I was so fortunate to see both Sherri and her fabulous quilt last evening. Sherri was bubbly and so excited and as we hugged I told her how proud we are of her and her wonderful accomplishment. She is one very special lady and is sooooo very deserving of this major award. Congratulations Sherri!!!! :D

It surely could not have happened to a sweeter person! And the quilt is special in so many ways!

Sherry, enjoy the praise. You earned it.
