I got my quilt Cosmic Sunrise back from MQX East yesterday. I was completely surprised and absolutely delighted when I opened the box and found Janet-Lee Santeusanio’s Founder’s Award medal!

I’ve spent the last couple of years improving my machine quilting skills, and this was only the second time I have entered a quilt that I quilted myself in a competition. Given the high quality of machine quilting necessary to get into an MQX show (since it is a machine quilting show), I was happy just to be juried in.  The award was icing on the cake!

Thank you Janet-Lee!

P.S. I quilted it on a Bernina 830, with Kimono silk thread from Superior Thread.
