Thank you so much, Lorra and Zarah! I have not seen either of you two for a while! I know I'm on again/off again, on the Forum, depending on what's happening in my life, too. But, it's good to see old friends!

Thank you Lotti! Chuffed? I'm assuming that's a good thing! :cheer: Is that kind of like "tickled pink?"

Kathy...........I'm sure Luann was not referring to changing the title of THIS thread, but the Virtual Retreat thread she started. Perhaps she mistakenly posted it on the wrong thread.

And, sure! In your spare time (lol) you may turn my Avitar so I am upright. The problem arises from the iPad taking correct pictures no matter what way we rotate it. But, then when we post them they can be sideways or upside down. I wish I knew what is the official "up" on the iPad, and then I would only take pictures in that mode, if I intend to post them here. But, I must say, I am happy that we finally have the ability to post them from our iPads. Thanks!

So, Kathy, could you just change the title of this thread to take us through the rest of the year and we wouldn't be flipping to the one I put up for the rest of the year? That would be great if it's possible.
And thanks for doing whatever you can do

I've found quilting of faces has always been a little troublesome, and how quilts are folded by others also. A lot of shows are really good about that, but Hoffman Challenge uses many untrained volunteers in the packing and unpacking and repacking of their quilt trunks. Not much you can do, but it's so nice no one will care. I handwashed and reblocked mine when they came back from travel or steamed them if they weren't washable. I found over the years of Hoffman challenge participation that for small quilts, like Hoffman Challenge sized ones, do better in these problems with wool batting. By the way, it's the same ribbon I won in 2011 with my quilt "Quiet Celebration." Way to go!

Kathy,
Are you our 'resident thread helper'? I know I can go back and fix a post that I've made, but can you help someone else out?

I'm not totally tech illiterate, just some things elude me, and it's easier to just ask than to flounder about.

Kathy, thank you so much for turning her upright! You are too cool!

When I sent her into Hoffman, I made sure to fold her in thirds, so as not to crease her face. Well, before Hoffman took the pictures for their site, someone folded her in half right down the middle, and must have place a pretty hefty amount of quilts on top of her. Now she has a distorted chin, nose, and mask. I had trapunto in those areas, and they squished. :ohmy:

But, I will learn from this! I will be more sensitive to where a quilt might be folded along the way, and make sure that those areas are heavily quilted. Like I said, it was my first face, so, I guess it needed more quilting than I had done. You learn as you go!

And, yes, Kathy I am thrilled to have won a top award in a national contest with hundreds of entries! I've looked back over the past few years, and there are some big name winners, that have repeat wins!

Again, thank you all for your kind words! I am still smiling!

Forgot to add, that is awesome! A win at national level against hundreds of entrants must be thrilling. Congrats.
